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

The Golden State Warriors were completely undermanned against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday. Still, they came away with an impressive blowout victory behind a 40-point performance from Kelly Oubre Jr. The two Western Conference teams are running it back on Saturday, and things should be a little more evenly matched this time around. Let’s take a look at some ideal bets to make for the matchup on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Warriors vs. Mavericks, 8:30 p.m. ET, ABC

Pick ATS: Mavericks -4

The last time they faced Dallas, Golden State won by 31, but Oubre scoring 40 points is an anomaly. The Warriors also outrebounded the Mavericks by nine despite 6’7” forward Juan Toscano-Anderson being their tallest player available. I can’t see a completely healthy Mavericks team laying an egg a second time at full strength.

Player Prop: Draymond Green O22.5 points, assists, and rebounds (-107)

Green eclipsed this mark with points and assists alone in his last game. Golden State’s Swiss army knife scored 11 and dished out 15 dimes while getting an extended run, and his versatility will be needed again. If the game is closer this time around, he’ll likely exceed the 29 minutes he logged on Thursday. This is a major lowball for a player capable of stuffing the stat sheet like Green. Mr. triple-single should be all over this one.
