LOS ANGELES—After a wild Game 1 that saw the Dallas Mavericks pulling off an upset, bettors can shift their focus to the betting lines that are out for Game 2.

Los Angeles Clippers Vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 2 Odds To Win

  • Moneyline: Clippers (-275) vs. Mavericks (+225)
  • Spread: Clippers -6.5
  • Total: 216 Points

Clippers Vs. Mavericks Moneyline

Looking at the odds for the outright winner, the fact that the Clippers are seen as “heavier” favorites is just downright disrespectful to the Dallas Mavericks. Especially after they defeated the Clippers by 10 points in Game 1.

Not to mention, when these two teams met three times during the regular season, the Mavs walked away with two wins in which both of them came by double-digit margins. Granted, their 124-73 win came over the Clippers who were missing Kawhi Leonard at the time, but their second win against them which ended 105-89 came against a full-strength Clippers team.

With that being said, bettors should feel more than comfortable backing up the Mavericks moneyline going into Game 2.

Moneyline Pick: Dallas Mavericks +225

Clippers Vs. Mavericks Spread

Similar to the moneyline, the spread is just too large for the Mavs to not cover. Especially considering that Dallas has covered the spread against the Clippers three times this season, including Game 1, out of the four games that they’ve played.

This does not mean that bettors should discredit what the Clippers have done against the spread this season as they have gone 39-33-1 ATS, but have really struggled against the Mavericks. They are also 0-4 against the spread in their last four playoff games as the favorite and also 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a loss.

All signs are pointing towards Dallas being able to cover the spread once again in Game 2.

Spread Pick: Mavericks +6.5

Los Angeles Clippers Vs. Dallas Mavericks Series Price Odds

Clippers Vs. Mavericks Series Odds

  • Clippers -150
  • Mavericks +130

Looking at the series price, after the Mavs stole Game 1, the odds for the winner of the series are set fairly close.

The Mavericks have all that it takes to beat the Clippers and have shown that not only in Game 1 and in their regular-season matchups, but also the fact that the Mavs took them to six games in the 2020 playoffs.

Something else to take into consideration here is that backs up Dallas closing out the series on top is that the Clippers do not have the best of luck in the playoffs as they have never made it past the second round.
