Suns vs. Dallas Prediction
It will no doubt be a tight game tonight. Phoenix would love to give themselves some rest before their next series, but Dallas will not give up that easily. Not to mention the fact that Luka has not lost a playoff game at home this year. Bettors should expect an explosive performance from him tonight to force Game 7.
When looking at how to bet Thursday’s game, remember that the 76ers are a money-burning 16-30 against the spread following a road game this season.
So, initially, historical results with identical patterns to this series point to the Phoenix Suns winning and covering the spread.
In Game 5, the Mavericks held an eight-point lead at 38-30 in the middle of the second quarter. From that point on, the Suns outscored the Mavericks 80-42, going on to win 110-80 in a blowout.
In addition, the Suns outscored the Mavericks in the paint, 44-24.
Teams that outscored their Game 5 opponent in the paint by 15 or more points are 20-10-1 against the spread, for 67% winning bets, in Game 6 of the NBA playoffs. This, too, supports a trip to the ticket window to bet the Suns.
Also, Phoenix has been an incredible money maker in games played when they have won the battle of the boards.
It would be extremely surprising if the Mavericks can push it to a Game 7. Experts and bettors alike thought this would be a short series, but Dallas has been taking care of business when playing at home.
