The Dallas Mavericks are sliding fast and have lost five straight games. They’ll get a chance to bounce back against a Phoenix Suns team that’s riding a two-game winning streak on Monday. Kristaps Porzingis rested against the Suns on Saturday but his return could make all the difference for the Mavericks. Let’s go over some ideal bets available on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the action.

Phoenix Suns vs. Dallas Mavericks, 8:30 p.m. ET, NBATV

Pick ATS: Mavericks -2.5

Dallas was dominated in the post on Saturday, as Deandre Ayton feasted on the glass with Porzingis out of the picture. The Suns big man racked up 18 points and matched a season-high with 17 rebounds against the Mavericks. Even with Ayton’s monstrous performance, Phoenix only claimed a six-point victory. Porzingis will provide a significant boost in multiple areas on Monday and the absence of Devin Booker (hamstring) puts the Suns at a disadvantage on the offensive end.

Player Prop: Luka Doncic O2.5 made threes (+155)

Much has been made of Doncic’s poor three-point shooting this season. He’s shooting just under 30 percent from range on the year, but his volume still gives him plenty of chances to knock shots down from beyond the arc. He’s made multiple threes in four straight games and was 3-of-8 from three in his last game against the Suns.
