Atlanta Hawks vs. Dallas Mavericks Odds
- Moneyline: Mavericks -165, Hawks -+145
- Spread: Mavericks -3.5
- Totals: Over/Under 232.5
The Dallas Mavericks have managed to string together some wins after struggling earlier in the season. The team is looking to continue this forward trend while facing off against the Atlanta Hawks in their upcoming matchup.
The Mavericks won the initial meeting between the two teams, and NBA betting fans are expecting Dallas point guard Luka Doncic to once again get the better of Hawks point guard Trae Young.
Underdog bettors should lean in on the longshot odds for Atlanta (11-12), however, as the Hawks have a better record than the Mavericks (11-14) and have played better overall in the last 10 games.
Taking Atlanta to beat the Mavericks by the -4.5 spread, would net a +235 return. This is a big way to break the book for underdog betting fans. Should Trae Young (26.7 PTS, 4.0 REB, 9.2 AST) have a big game, some lucky bettors could cash in big.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns Odds
- Monyline: bucks -175, Suns +155
- Spread: Bucks -4.0
- Totals: Over/Under 226.5
Most sports bettors are leaning in on Milwaukee to beat the Suns in this cross-conference matchup. The Bucks are on a five-game winning stream and have etched their way to the number two seed in the Eastern Conference.
Phoenix is also coming in hot, currently on a three-game winning streak, and has a solid 7-4 home record this season.
With two hot teams facing off, players may want to wager on the totals for points in the first half. With both teams being strong defensively this season, taking the +125 under for 110.0 total first-half points could net lucky sports betting fans a major win.
This is a big way to break the book should both teams’ defenses manage to hold the total score lower than sportsbooks expect.

Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers Odds
- Moneyline: Bruins -170, Rangers +150
- Spread: Bruins -1.5
- Totals Over/Under 5.5
The Bruins are number one in the East Division while the Rangers have been struggling, currently sitting at the bottom of the division. It is no surprise why the Bruins are favored to take the win as they are currently on a three-game winning streak.
With the Bruins having the short odds to win, sports bettors should lean on the +145 odds for them to cover the -1.5 spread.
The Bruins have won two of their last three games by just one goal, but Boston did beat the Pittsburgh Penguins by 4-1 and the Philadelphia flyers 6-1, showing they are capable of scoring big holding their opponents on the defensive end.
The Rangers are the perfect team for these skills to shine as New York’s last two losses were by multiple goals. Sports betting fans could exploit and break the book by cashing in on the longshot odds for the Bruins to cover the spread.
