Betting Odds: Celtics -6.5 (-115) - Over/Under (214.5)

Pick: Celtics -6.5 (-115)

The Dallas Mavericks and the Boston Celtics will play the second game of the NBA finals here on Sunday night. This will be a pivotal game number two as the Dallas Mavericks look to even up the series and the Boston Celtics look to take a commanding two games to zero lead before heading to Dallas for the following two games. This should be a close and competitive matchup on Sunday night which is something we saw spurts of throughout an opening game that was mainly a de facto blowout by the Boston Celtics. 

Dallas will look for a way to bounce back in the second game of this series after being outmatched in the opening game earlier this week in Boston. Despite decent performances from their key players, Dallas was unable to keep up minus a few comeback attempts late in the game, after a rough first quarter virtually took them out of the contest. That is something they will avoid in game number two of the series, they look for a way to even up this NBA finals matchup before heading home for game three and four next week. This will be a pivotal game for the Dallas Mavericks and if they lose, they will be in a huge hole heading home and it will feel like they need to take both to get back into this NBA finals series. 

They will need Kyrie Irving to put up better numbers here in game two against the Boston Celtics if they want to even up this series on Sunday night and head home with a clean slate. If Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving recapture the magic from their postseason run in the prior three rounds, then Dallas is nowhere near out of this series against the Boston Celtics. That will be the main point for as well as finding a way to shut down Tatum and Brown throughout game number two as well. Certainly has the talent capable of lifting the NBA championship this season, but they will either keep players to step up on the lights are the brightest, and that means being the third team to grab a victory over Boston in the second game of the series this year.

The Boston Celtics put up a tremendous performance in the opening game of the NBA finals earlier this week at home against the Dallas Mavericks. Now they will look to replicate that performance in the second game of the series as they look to take a commanding 2 to 0 lead over Dallas before heading on the road for the next two games. However, game number two is something Boston has struggled with throughout the postseason thus far, losing two out of three with their only victory coming in the eastern conference finals against the Indiana Pacers. 

That is something Boston will look to shake as they look to grab another huge victory in the second game of this series and really put Dallas in a bad position heading for the following two games. They will need guys like Tatum and Brown to step up once again as they also look for a way to shut down Kyrie Irving for the second consecutive game in a row as well. If Brown and Tatum can continue putting up solid performances throughout this series, then it is almost a foregone conclusion that Boston will lift their 18th NBA title at the end of this finals matchup. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Boston is 44-6 as a home favorite 

- Boston is 60-16 after a win 

- Dallas is 11-15 as a road underdog 

I expect this to be a close and competitive game here on Sunday night at TD Garden in Boston. I look for this one to be much more competitive than the opening game of the series as I look for Dallas and Boston to go back-and-forth throughout the majority of the game. However, in the end, I am expecting a similar result, as I look for the Boston Celtics to grab the victory here on Sunday night to take a two games to zero lead over the Dallas Mavericks.
