Mavericks vs. Warriors, 9:00 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Warriors -6
The Warriors lineup presents some problems for the Mavs and while they should play better in Game 2, it may not be enough for them to close the large gap. Curry came alive in the second half of Game 1, which is a bad sign for Dallas. The Warriors have too many options for the Mavs to keep up with. Take Golden State to win and cover at home in Game 2.
Over/Under: Under 214
Game 1 went well under this under, although Game 2 is unlikely to be a blowout. The Mavericks only scored 69 points through three quarters in Game 1, which likely won’t happen as they’ll hit some more open shots. Golden State’s defense has been on point this postseason, and makes up for the team’s inconsistent shooting performances. The under is the play here, but this will be a close call.
