Our Betting Tip for Today

After careful analysis of the recent form and H2H history between the sides, for today’s NBA betting tips, our experts pick Dallas Mavericks for the win.

Dallas Mavericks are the clear favorites

Luka Doncic and the Mavericks have been one of the in-form teams in the league this February, winning 5 of their 7 games. This include wins against very good teams in Miami Heat (107-99), LA Clippers (105-112), Atlanta Hawks (94-103), and Philadelphia 76ers (98-107). Even their only loss in the last 6 matches came in a very close game against the Clippers (99-97). They also boasts the services of an all-star guard in Luka Doncic who averages 27.0 points (7th in the league), 9.0 assists (5th in the league), and 9.0 rebounds. On the other hand, the Pelicans have struggled in the last few games, winning only 1 of the last 4. Their hopes will rest on the performances of Brandon Ingram who leads the Pelicans’ scoring (22.3 points) and assisting (5.3 assists) charts. So, considering all these stats and the recent form of either team, the Mavericks is our pick for today’s NBA betting tips.
