Why the Mavericks can cover the spread
Phoenix was reportedly deciding between Ayton and Doncic as the top selection in the draft, and the team's choice of the former allowed the latter to fall to Dallas at No. 3 overall. The Mavericks could not be happier, as the 19-year-old Slovenian appears to be the most NBA-ready player of the rookie crop. Daftar sbobet
has truly improved this team, leading Dallas to 12 wins in the last 15 games. The Mavericks are also an impressive 11-4 against the spread during that stretch following a 3-8 start 6-5 ATS.
Why the Suns can cover the spread
The Suns have earned three of their four wins at home this year, so at least they have that going for them in this spot. Regardless, they have lost 10 games in a row overall since upsetting the Milwaukee Bucks 116-114 as 13.5-point road underdogs on November 23, including a 123-119 overtime defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers in their last home game on Monday. Ayton had a team-high 20 points and 12 rebounds versus the Clippers as leading scorer Devin Booker remains out with a hamstring injury. Even without Booker, Phoenix might be undervalued in this spot as a home underdog.
