Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks CashBet Wagering Analysis

With no Luka Doncic, expect Donovan Mitchell to dance with the guards of the Dallas Mavericks and have his way. The Jazz is on full force and the team has a lot of mismatches from the starters and the bench.

Jazz Looks to Capitalize with Their Healthy Roster

The main factor that the Utah Jazz fell to the sixth place in the NBA Western Conference standings at the end of the season is because of injuries. That is not a problem for them right now and when healthy, the Jazz is one of the most formidable forces in the entire league. Donovan Mitchell and Bojan Bogdanovic were the one-two punch for the Jazz in Game 1 and they got help from Mike Conley Jr. and Jordan Clarkson doing their respective jobs even without the scoring. Rudy Gobert maintained his place in the defensive end to clog the paint giving the Mavericks a difficult time hoisting shots. 

Mavericks Have No Luka Magic

It is just sore to see the Dallas Mavericks trying to survive the playoffs without Luka Doncic. It is still questionable if he will be suiting up for Game 2 but if ever he does, Doncic will not be 100%. Trying to fill in his shoes were Jalen Brunson and Spencer Dinwiddie who tried their best to keep the game close. Reggie Bullock and Dorian Finney-Smith are doing their part as well but the lack of offensive kick is taking its toll by the end game. Tim Hardaway Jr. is out for the season and it seems that the Mavericks have always been bitten by the injury bug at the worst time in the past seasons.

Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks Head-to-Head with Spread

Even with the home court being owned by the Dallas Mavericks, it is just hard to see them surviving the Utah Jazz. NBA betting spreads see the Jazz as the underdog but we see them throwing their most powerful punches without Doncic in Game 2.
