Pick against the spread, best player prop for Warriors vs. Mavericks on Thursday

We go over some of the best betting options for Thursday’s Warriors vs. Mavericks matchup.

NBA: Boston Celtics at Golden State Warriors Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Mavericks will host the Golden State Warriors in the first game of Thursday night’s NBA doubleheader on TNT. Dallas had a six-game losing streak snapped in Wednesday night’s win over the Atlanta Hawks, while the Warriors lost two of their last three. DraftKings Sportsbook is offering plenty of betting options for this matchup, and here’s a look at our best bets for a pick against the spread as well as a prop bet.

Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks, 7:30 p.m. ET, TNT

Pick ATS: Mavericks -2

Neither team has been particularly good against the spread recently as the Mavericks are just 1-6 against the number in their last seven and Golden State is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games. Dallas is a better team than what we’ve seen from them recently, and they should be feeling good returning home after a win. In addition, James Wiseman is dealing with a sprained wrist with Kevon Looney out with a sprained left ankle. The Mavericks should be at full strength.

Player Prop: Stephen Curry O 5.5 assists (+100)

This is a prop bet that you need to attack quickly as it could flip to the other side of even money the closer we get to game time. This season, Curry is averaging 6.1 assists per game, despite not having the most consistent offensive playmakers around him sometimes. The superstar guard has gone over 5.5 assists in 13 out of 21 games. In the Warriors’ last five games, Curry is averaging six assists per game.
