Western Conference Finals: Mavericks-Warriors Game 1 Betting Preview
Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks knocked off the No. 1 overall seed in the NBA Playoffs last Sunday with complete dominance in a Game 7 win, 123-90.
Doncic, making his first conference finals appearance, will look to take down the powerhouse Golden State Warriors to advance to the NBA Finals. Can the Mavericks’ cinderella story continue or will the Warriors dynasty return to greatness?

I’m feeling a strong defensive effort from both teams tonight as they try to feel each other out for the remainder of the season. Golden State had the most efficient defense at home during the regular season and the Mavericks play at a slow-and-steady pace while allowing the third lowest 3-point percentage in the regular season.
Picks: Mavericks +5.5 (covered in last 7-of-8 games) and Under 214.5 (-110)
