Dallas and Utah Clash in Pivotal Game 5 Monday Night on TNT

Utah Jazz at Dallas Mavericks Playoffs Betting Information

Despite missing superstar Luka Doncic in the first three games, the Mavericks are dead even with the Jazz.  Dallas won a game in both Utah and at home.  Ironically enough, in the one game Doncic played, the Mavericks lost.  That was game four when Doncic led all scorers.  Now the series shifts to Dallas for game five.  The Jazz won the Northwest Division championship this season.  However, Utah has been one of the worst NBA betting values on the board this season.  Wise Guys believe that Utah is a championship level club when healthy.

Jazz at Mavericks CashBet Wagering Odds Analysis

On this occasion, there will be plenty of top online sportsbook activity on each side.  In the 2020 NBA Playoffs, Luka Doncic firmly established himself as a force to be reckoned with.  Doncic is the Mavericks Marquee Man that casual gamblers gravitate towards.  But casual money is not going entirely to Dallas.  In like manner, Wise Guy money is going both ways too.  That is the handicapping challenge of this series.  There are compelling arguments for each side.

Donavan Mitchell has emerged as Utah’s dominant star.  And as a player that gamblers see as a match to Doncic.  Mitchell has played relatively well in this series.  Thus, sharps believe that secondary scoring and other players down the roster could be the difference.

Specifically, the home court has not been an advantage in this series.  In this matchup, Dallas and Utah are 1-1 at home and on the road.  Although casuals like home teams and sharps prefer quality road clubs, the line is not far enough off to show a great advantage to either side.

Jazz Hits Sour Note at Cashier’s Cage

Late on, Utah has failed to cover four of its last five games.  Four of their most recent six games stayed under the Betting on NBA total.  The Jazz limped into the playoffs after covering only two of their final ten regular season games.  As a result, gamblers are growing weary of the Jazz.

Head coach Quin Snyder has produced one of the most balanced teams in the NBA.  Since 2014, Snyder has been a steadying force for the Jazz.  This season Utah had NBA metrics of 7th for scoring offense and 10th for points allowed.  Snyder was an All-Star Game head coach in 2021.

Donovan Mitchell has been an NBA All-Star for the past three seasons.

So far in the playoffs, Mitchell has been a key pro basketball betting asset.  He is averaging 30.3 points and 6.0 assists per contest.  In the regular season, Mitchell averaged 25.9 points per contest.  Accordingly, 2021-22 was the fourth consecutive season that Mitchell averaged at least 24 points per game.

Doncic Makes Dallas Whole

Despite a 100-99 loss in game four at Utah, Dallas was better off with Luka Doncic in the basketball betting lineup.  Doncic scored 30 points with ten rebounds in the defeat.  Doncic averaged 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game this season.  On the whole, the 2021-22 campaign demonstrated that Doncic is one of the most complete players in the Association.  

Secondary Assets Emerge for Both Sides  

Utah has gotten effective help from Bojan Bogdanovic.  So far, Bogdanovic is averaging 21.8 points per game in the playoffs.  And Rudy Gobert is averaging 11.3 points and 14 rebounds per contest.

When Doncic missed the first three games, the Mavericks won twice.  Cause by Jalen Brunson’s 29.8 points per game in the playoffs.

In this situation, the Mavericks will have a true NBA gambling advantage on their home court.  Doncic proved he is healthy enough to be the top scorer on the court.
