Life without Embiid

Luka Leading Dallas

After losing their final game of January at Minnesota, the Dallas Mavericks allowed 129 in a loss to the Bucks to start February. The Mavericks are 10th in the league in scoring, with more than 118 points per game, and are making 15 three point shots a game, but their defense has been their downfall lately.

Luka Doncic continues to be an elite scorer for the Mavericks. He is scoring 34.8 points per game. Kyrie Irving is next on Dallas with 25.2 points per game. Tim Hardaway, a third guard is next with more than 18 points per game.

Dallas Picks up Road Win

Without Embiid in the paint, Philadelphia is in trouble. For the short term, and the long term. Maxey is good, and an elite scorer, but not enough to keep up with the fire power that Dallas will throw at them. When betting on this game, we are going to take the road team. Bet the Dallas Mavericks -2.5 over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday in National Basketball Association betting!
