We go over some of the best betting options for Friday’s Game 3 matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks.

NBA: Playoffs-Dallas Mavericks at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns will head to Dallas for Game 3 of their second-round series. The Suns currently hold a 2-0 lead and can take complete control of the series with a win on Friday night. Dallas was in the striking distance early in the fourth quarter of Game 2 until Chris Paul completely took over, finishing the game with 28 points. Luka Doncic scored 35 points in the contest, but it wasn’t nearly enough.

The Suns are currently 1-point favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 219.

Suns vs. Mavericks, 9:30 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Dallas +1

This game is essentially a pick ’em and with Dallas heading home, expect the fans to make life tough on the Suns. Doncic has been a scoring machine in this series, but look for Jason Kidd to get Spencer Dinwiddie and Jalen Brunson more involved. Both guys have struggled in the series after playing well in the first round. If those two can get it going offensively, the Mavs can get a game at home.

Over/Under: Over 219

Both games in the series have gone over, and this one shouldn’t be any different. The stars on each of these teams have shined through the postseason and will do so again, creating a high-scoring matchup. Take the over.
