The Western Playoffs have been intriguing fellas. Lower ranked teams are doing laps over the higher-ranked teams and they are pushing them to the brink as the Grizzlies and Suns are facing trouble in the first round itself. On the other hand, the Golden State Warriors have been on top up by three-one. On the other hand, in this game, the Utah Jazz will visit the Dallas Mavericks to get an edge in a tied two-two series.Bet on Dallas Mavericks-Utah Jazz
Best bets on Mavericks vs Jazz
Total: Bookmakers from 22bet suggest that Total Over/Under 212.5 has the odds of 1.90. Two of the games between the two have been in the 180-200 range and both teams have showcased tremendous defensive prowess, however, two other games have been in the excess of the 220. I believe that this game will go “Over” here as Doncic and Mitchell will heat up from the field. (Total Over 212.5)
Player Props: Bookmakers at bet365 predict odds of 1.83 for Jordan Clarkson going Over 14.5 Points here(At least 15 points). Clarkson is getting more minutes as Conley’s production has been off and I see him getting 27-34 minutes here too and popped for a winning 25 points effort. I believe he will score at least 17 points here. I believe he will go “Over” here.. (Player Props: Player Points: Jordan Clarkson Over 14.5)
Handicap: Bookmakers at 1xbet are favoring the Mavericks to win this game with the odds of 1.62 and that is understandable since this is their home court and Doncic is back in the mix. However, I see the Jazz forcing at least another close game here although the Mavericks will come on the top most probably. I’d wager something on the difference less Than 6 which has the odds of 2.9. (Any Other Score- Win With Difference Less Than 6)

Mavericks’ rhythm was terrific in Game 2 and 3 but the return of Doncic meant multiple adjustments which affected the efficiency of Jalen Brunson and the touches for Dorian Finney-Smith and Reggie Bullock. Doncic did his bit scoring 30 points on a 50%+ shooting but the rest of the team was unable to pull through. One another area where the Mavericks struggled is keeping the Jazz away from offensive boards but they had another strong three-point shooting night, making 15 of them again. However, the Mavericks’ bench single-handedly go outmatched by Jordan Clarkson as Maxi Kleber didn’t have a strong shooting night and only had three points.
Utah’s offense hasn’t been pretty so far as Donovan Mitchell has had a poor outing from beyond the three-point line. On the other hand, Mike Conley has not been in his mojo but Jordan Clarkson’s 25 points night will inspire some confidence. Rudy Gobert was more aggressive on the offensive end in the last game and the Jazz really needs more from him offensively, and Gobert needs more from the team defensively. Donovan Mitchell will need to be better with his shot-selection because he has forced the motions at times and I believe Conley’s lack of form also has hurt his efficiency as he has been forced to take more. Bojan Bogdanovic has provided respite and he scored 12 in the last game, before that, scoring at least 20 in the first three games. So, can the Jazz put a knife in the Mavericks away from home?
