The Warriors have a commanding 2-0 lead and will put the clamps on the series with another victory. While they remain the favorite to win the series and the NBA Finals, sportsbooks are pegging them as short dogs for Sunday’s tilt. As of Sunday morning, the spread ranges from Dallas -2.5 (DraftKings) to -3 (Caesars).
Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 3 Odds
The Dubs have won and covered in their last three, all on their home court. Their road mark hasn’t been as sharp — they’re 1-2 straight-up and 0-3 against the spread over their last three road tilts.
Warriors vs. Mavericks Game 3 Player Props
Luka Doncic Over 3.5 Three-pointers (-125, Caesars)
Head coach Jason Kidd spoke about the Mavericks’ reliance on the three in Game 2. “When you go 2-for-13 and you rely on the three, you can die by the three. And we died in the third quarter by shooting that many threes and coming up with only two,” Kidd remarked following the loss. The Mavs shot 21 of 45 from deep overall, but it won’t be a surprise to see them demonstrate more judicious shot selection. That, however, won’t apply to Doncic, who has attempted double-digit threes in nine of 12 postseason contests. He’s converting at a 45.2 percent clip over his last three, and if he maintains some semblance of that efficiency, four made three-pointers won’t be a difficult mark to hit.
Stephen Curry Over 38.5 Combined Points, Assists, Rebounds (-110, BetMGM)
If the Warriors are going to extend their series lead to three games, it will largely be thanks to Curry’s production. And it won’t take an otherworldly performance to reach a combined 39 across those three stat categories. He’s still more than capable of pouring in 30-plus points, and his team-leading usage rate means he’ll have the ball in his hands enough to rack up a healthy total of assists. He’s also averaged a strong 5.1 boards during postseason play. He’s hit that combined mark in four of his last seven.
Klay Thompson, Jalen Brunson (DraftKings)
Klay Thompson, Jalen Brunson 20+ Points Each (+225)
There’s a reason DraftKings is offering big plus-money odds in this spot. While Brunson has steadily crossed the 20-point plateau this postseason, Thompson hasn’t been the prolific scorer we’ve grown accustomed to watching. Even so, he’s demonstrated he still has a high end to his game. He’s gone over 20 points in five postseason contests and continues to serve as a premier long-range threat.
DraftKings has a plethora of scoring options for both Thompson and Brunson that bettors can play with to find their optimal prop pairing and risk/reward profile.
More Points: Klay Thompson +115 vs. Jalen Brunson -145
Brunson is favored here for good reason. He’s established himself as the Mavericks’ No. 2 leading scorer. Thompson, though, is still quite capable of putting up big scoring numbers. He’s attempted at least 20 shots in three contests and reached at least 30 points twice. He deserves consideration at this plus-money price.
Same-Game Parlay (DraftKings)
Mavericks Cover -2.5 Plus Luka Doncic Over 32.5 Points (+185)
If the Mavericks are going to add a tally in the win column this series, Game 3 may be the best bet. They’ve won and covered their last five home games.
A Mavs victory won’t happen without a quality performance from Doncic, who has scored at least 33 points in three of his last four. He sees a copious amount of scoring opportunities, including two and three-point attempts and multiple trips to the charity stripe. Bettors can chase a larger reward or reduce risk by choosing higher or lower point totals for Doncic.
Another risk-management strategy includes opting for the Mavericks moneyline instead of the spread. However, the potential return on a successful parlay ticket can be enticing.
It’s recommended bettors tread lightly with SGPs, since books’ advantage only increases with this type of wager.
