There are just four games on the schedule tonight in the NBA, with the top matchup for tonight being the Boston Celtics visiting the Dallas Mavericks. Tip-off starts at 7:30 PM ET from American Airlines Arena. This matchup provides a great same-game parlay opportunity at +550 odds. The Mavericks are playing at home and Boston is trying to break a two-game losing streak on the current road trip.
Leg One: Dallas Mavericks To Win (+125)
The Celtics looked like they came out of their recent slump of losing five of six games by winning four straight at home. However, they risk losing their third straight on the road in this game after surrendering 150 points against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Dallas has won seven straight games overall. They won four in a row at home, and they should dominate this game against Boston’s struggling defense.
Leg Two: Jason Tatum Over 2.5 Threes Made (-159)
Although the team has been slumping, Tatum has been playing well. He’s averaged over 34 points per game and is shooting 49% from the field in the previous nine games. In his first game against Dallas, he had 37 points and made three baskets from beyond the arc. In the end, he should recover from his slow start this month. We predict he’ll get closer to his averages in this game, with defenders Dorian Finney-Smith and Maxi Kleber both injured for the Mavericks.
Leg Three: Luka Doncic Over 8.5 Assists (-105)
Recently, Doncic has been putting up some big scoring numbers and is hoping to do the same at home against the Celtics. Previously, he scored 42 and had nine assists in their first meeting in November. He has also averaged 9.4 assists for the previous nine contests. However, the Celtics aren’t going to let one man beat them. Doncic will have to get everyone involved if they want to win this matchup.
