We are into the Semi-Finals of the Conferences and the battle has been heating up more than ever as the stakes are ever so high. The East has seen the Heat build a two-nil lead against the 76ers while the Bucks and the Celtics are tied as of now. On the other hand, the Grizzlies and the Warriors are tied. On the other hand, when the Dallas Mavericks will host the Phoenix Suns, thinking about getting at least one win being down nil-two. Can they turn the tables here?

Best bets on Mavericks vs Suns

Handicap: Bookmakers from 22bet believe that both teams have equal odds of 1.9 to win this game. Therefore, this becomes a tricky scenario despite the Suns overwhelming the Mavericks in the first two games. At home, the Mavericks' defense is as tight as it is especially late in the game. However, the Suns have been getting it done and have set a brilliant tone to the series and I believe they will beat the Mavericks for the third time in a row as they have hit one of those sweet streaks. (Handicap 2 -4.5 for 2.5)

Player Props: Bookmakers at bet365 predict odds of 1.95 for Cameron Johnson Going Over 9.5 Points here(At least 10 points). Cameron has scored 9 and 13 in the first two games of the series and he has gotten back some of his offensive rhythms after being injured. I believe he will score at least 10 points. (Player Props: Player Points: Cameron Johnson Over 9.5 for 1.95)

Total: Bookmakers at 1xbet believe that the total of 219.5 (Over/Under) has the odds of 1.97 on either side. The first two games have been rather high-scoring, bundling up 238 points and 235 points. Thus, the suggested over/under is surely way lower than the current precedent, however, when the Mavs play at home, the scores are usually below 210 as we saw in the series against the Jazz. I believe this will still go “Over” here. (Total Over 219.5 for 1.97)

Phoenix Suns

The Suns absolutely eviscerated the Mavs' defense in the last game, shooting an astounding 62% from the field and clicking on an unbelievable 52% three-point attempts, nailing 13 of them. They also made 18 of their 21 attempts from the free-throw line and despite uncharacteristically turning it over 16 times, the Suns were so brilliant in terms of efficiency that they got the job done despite making two fewer free-throws and attempting three fewer shots from the field. The Suns continued to move the ball around and dished 28 assists as a team. Most of the damage was done by the backcourt of Paul and Booker, scoring 28 and 30 respectively The Suns’ offense is dancing now and it will be tough to contain them from here on.

Dallas Mavericks

The Mavs continued to be red-hot from three, once again clicking on 17 triples and outgunning the opponent from beyond the arc but it is their defense that is having issues taking care of a highly efficient Suns team. Luka followed his 45-point night in Game 1 by a 35 points outing in Game 2. Brunson shot just 3/12 from the floor and he has been rather inefficient in the first two games. Bullock had a strong shooting night, nailing four of his eight attempts from the three-point line. Spencer Dinwiddie also had his recurring shooting issues, making just 3/10 shots. However, the biggest issue remains their defense as they have allowed the Suns to score 120+ twice in a two which has been uncharacteristic for the squad. Will they recover in this game on the defensive end?
