Dallas Mavericks vs. Golden State Warriors Game 5 Odds
As expected, Golden State is the favorite in Game 5, where it looks to put Dallas out of its misery. For bettors thinking about wagering on a Warriors win, you’ll be pleased to know the Dubs have successfully defended their home court in all eight home games in the playoffs, while covering the spread in six of those contests. But a moneyline wager would cost you a steep price of 3-to-1 odds (BetMGM) as of Thursday morning, and the spread is pegged at 6.5 to 7 points; advantage, Warriors.
Mavs vs. Warriors Game 5 Player Props
Jordan Poole ‘Over’ 16.5 Points (+100, DraftKings)
Playing on their home floor pumps up players, particularly role players. That notion has been highly applicable to Jordan Poole, the “Third Splash Brother”.
Poole’s play has fluctuated depending on the locale. He posted 19 and 23 points in the series’ two home games vs. 10 and 14 points in the two on the road.
If you expand your search throughout the entire playoffs, he has averaged 20.3 points at home and 16.6 points on the road.
Poole has shown throughout the entire season he doesn’t shy away from the moment, and with Game 5 to be played at the Chase Center, he should be able to find his shot with ease.
Draymond Green ‘Over’ 0.5 Blocks (-170, FanDuel)
Every team should have a swiss army knife-type of player like Draymond Green. Standing at “just” 6-foot-6, he has the vertical leap and awareness to out-jump shooters and swat shots.
Green doesn’t rack up multiple blocks per game like many big men do. But for the sake of this ‘over’ bet, we don’t need Hakeem Olajuwon-esque shot blocking. We just need one, which Green has shown to be highly doable. He has recorded one-plus blocks in 12 of 15 games.
Steph Curry 30+ Points; Warriors -14.5 (+572, FanDuel)
Simply winning the game outright doesn’t satisfy Dub Nation. They look to dominate, and they have achieved that by winning by an average of over 15 points per contest.
The Warriors are 0-3 in their first crack at closing a series in these playoffs – one each against Denver, Memphis, and Dallas. But they’re 2-0 in the follow-up closeout game, where Curry has dropped 29 and 30 points.
If Golden State wins comfortably, it can likely be attributed to Chef Curry cooking up a 30-piece, which Dallas would take to go – out of the playoffs.
