Mavericks-Thunder Game 2 Prop Ratings

Luka Doncic over 10.5 assists (+124)

Over 218.5 points (-110)

Jalen Williams over 20.5 points (-115)

Why Doncic will record more than 10.5 assists

Yes, I know that number is very high on paper, but this is Luka Doncic we are talking about. He’s the entire Mavericks team For better or worse, and above all it is better. He does everything for the Mavericks as well on a regular basis season And THE playoffs. He leads the way with 28.3 points per game, In rebounding at 8.4 per game, and In assists at 9.4 per game. In the playoffs, he is linked for the team, he led the team in assists with 9.4, then finished second in the regular season with 9.8 per game behind only Tyrese Haliburton. Doncic has only topped that number of assists once in the playoffs, but he’s also hit it just short of ten assists in two other matches.

Doncic is the Mavericks’ biggest key obviouslybut the Another reason to like this bet is that the Mavericks need to get other players involved, and with Doncic running the offense as much as he does. they we must distribute the wealth, And this will only be done thanks to Doncic sharing the ball. Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving can’t do everything And they will share the ball to get a few help. Expect this gamble to work out if the Mavericks keep it tight.

Why more than 218.5 points will be hit

Technically, the Thunder had the best defense in the entire playoffs in the five games they played with a sweep against the Pelicans and in the opener against the Mavericks. However, both of these teams have firepower. The playoffs are different, but the Thunder finished third at 120.1 points per game, while the Mavericks finished seventh at 117.9 points per game. Compared to the playoffs, the Thunder scores 107.6 points per game and the Mavericks score 105.3 points per game. These two teams also have some of the best individual scorers in the playoffs, namely Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving for the Mavericks, then Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Jalen Williams and Chet Holmgren. Expect the Mavericks to play better on offense than they did in the first game.

Why Jalen Williams will record more than 20.5 points

The Thunder has I excelled in the playoffs so far because of their balance. Five different players average in double figures with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jalen Williams averaging over 20 points per game. Williams is averaging above that figure for the playoffs at 20.6 through five games. He exceeded this figure in three out of the five games they played so far these playoffs. Williams is the ideal companion for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander on the Thunder. Williams is a scorer and shooter who can shoot wherever needed on the court while Gilgeous-Alexander runs the offense and sets it up. Williams is key as Gilgeous-Alexander can’t do everything all alone And The Thunder’s strength is on the perimeter this season.

Final Mavericks-Thunder Game 2 Prop Betting Prediction and Picks

Expect all kinds of fireworks in this offensive game. The Mavericks and Thunder have the firepower and it’s time for both teams to have an exceptional performance on that side of the ball. Doncic should be a superman for the Mavericks again, Williams should be the difference maker and with these two performances we should see the overkill in this matchup. These offenses are ready for a big game.
