Here's three of the best prop bets for the Mavericks-Nets game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Mavericks vs Nets Prop Bets Tonight
1. Goran Dragic - Assists: Over 5.5 (+118)
The Nets are playing at home tonight, which means Kyrie Irving will be out once again due to New York's vaccine mandate. His absence will benefit point guard Goran Dragic more than anyone else. The 14-year pro played in a whopping 38 minutes during Brooklyn's last game at the Barclays Center and tallied 6 assists. Overall, Dragic has cashed the over on this prop in five of his last seven games. The Mavericks are no easy matchup, but keep in mind Dragic averages 5.3 assists per game against Dallas in his career. Back the player who's going to have the ball in his hands a ton tonight.
2. Spencer Dinwiddie - Made Threes: Over 1.5 (-130)
Dallas traded for Spencer Dinwiddie to grab another capable scorer and he has filled in the role quite well so far. He is averaging 17.5 points per game as a Maverick and is making his mark from beyond arc. In fact, Dinwiddie has nailed at least 2 three-pointers in eight of his last nine games. The NBA veteran now gets to face a Nets defense that has allowed an opponent three-point shooting percentage of 37.7% over its last three contests. Look for Dinwiddie to set up shop on the perimeter in this one. This is a prop that could cash by halftime.
3. Andre Drummond - Rebounds: Under 9.5
Andre Drummond has been a monster for the Nets since being acquired in a midseason trade, but this number simply seems a bit too high. The 28-year-old center has only posted 10 or more rebounds in three of his last nine games. He will be running into some size, too. Both Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber have proven to be worthy rim defenders for the Mavericks. It's worth noting that Dallas gives up the seventh-fewest opponent rebounds per away game this season (51.0). While this is going to be a closely contested battle, don't expect Drummond to play a huge role on the boards.
