Betting Odds: Mavericks -2.5 (-105) - Over/Under (217.5)

Pick: Mavericks -2.5 (-105)

The Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Clippers will meet for the second game of their first round series here on Tuesday night in Los Angeles. These two teams put on a great show in the opening game of this first round series, as the Los Angeles Clippers came out on top. Now both teams will look to grab a victory here on Monday night before the series heads to Dallas for game three and game four later this week. This could be a pivotal turning point in the series, depending on who picks up the victory here in this one. As two of the most star studded teams in the West meet for the second time in the first round of the postseason. As Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving meet James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, and Paul George. 

Dallas will need to regroup after a rough defensive performance in the opening game of this first round series against Los Angeles on Sunday. They will need to be much more efficient on both ends of the court if they want to be successful and tie this series up before heading back home for the following two games. Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving will need to continue posting superstar like numbers throughout this game and the rest of the series if they want to get past the Los Angeles Clippers and advance to the next round of the postseason.

Doncic had a rather efficient performance throughout the opening game of this series scoring over 30 points, but they will need to find a way to shut down James Harden who registered 28 points of his own in the Clippers win. If they can find a way to shut down the scoring threat that is James Harden, Dallas will have a much more successful outcome here in game number two on Tuesday night. Kyrie Irving also recorded a 30+ point performance in the opening game of the series in Dallas will need a little bit more help from their supporting cast if they want to pick up the victory over the Clippers.

The Los Angeles Clippers put up a solid performance in the opening game of this series scoring over 100 points and holding Dallas to only 97 of their own. That is something they will replicate throughout the second game of this series as they look to take a commanding lead before heading back to Dallas for the following two games. If Los Angeles can jump out to an early two-to-nothing, it would put them in a position to advance to the second round of the postseason and keep winning the title alive. Despite a rough first couple of weeks when acquiring James Harden, this team has built up plenty of chemistry throughout the season and they are at their best at the moment and it is showing on the court. 

They will look to further prove that narrative to be true with another quality performance here in this one on Tuesday night at home against the Dallas Mavericks. The Los Angeles Clippers have long been looked at as the secondary team in the city of Los Angeles, and they will be out to prove that they are more than capable of making a deep playoff run and winning a championship of their own this season. As long as they remain healthy and consistent they will have a legitimate shot to get that done this year as they battle through the gauntlet of the Western Conference and potentially into the NBA finals.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Dallas went 25-16 on the road 

- Dallas went 39-13 as a favorite 

- Dallas went 19-13 after a loss 

I looked for this to be a close and competitive game here in the second game of this series on Tuesday night in Los Angeles. However, this time around, I am expecting a different result as I look for the Dallas Mavericks to play a much better game here on Tuesday and pick up a close victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. As I look for Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving to put up another pair of incredible performances throughout this game and for them to lead Dallas to a much-needed victory to even up the series. Not only do I look for the Dallas Mavericks to pick up for the victory in this game, but I also look for them to cover the spread here as well.
