Golden State Warriors vs Dallas Mavericks Game 5 Prediction: Can Luka Doncic Lead the Mavs to Victory?

The Dallas Mavericks vs. the Golden State Warriors will take place from Chase Center on Thursday night in a pivotal Game 5 of this seven-game set. The Warriors jumped out to a commanding 3-0 lead, but the Mavericks bounced back with a blowout win on Tuesday night. The win gives the Mavericks some life which is all they can ask for at this stage in the season. Let's dive into my prediction, best bet, and the odds for Game 5 between the Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks.

Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 5 Line Movement

Golden State Warriors vs Dallas Mavericks Game 5 Prediction

The Mavericks were led by Luka Doncic in Game 4, but their role players were outstanding. They shot the three-ball at a historic rate putting in twenty-three-pointers. Reggie Bullock bounced in a big way on Tuesday, and Dorian Finney-Smith stepped up with a big-time performance. The Warriors just never got going shooting the basketball and could not string together stops. The Mavs pulled away towards the end of the first half and never looked back.

Golden State will now have a chance to eliminate the Mavs in front of their home crowd. The Warriors are used to these scenarios as this is one of the best dynasties in NBA history. Dallas has not covered either game in Golden State so far, and tonight, they come in as a seven-point underdog. 

I am backing the dog tonight in the Dallas Mavericks. We have crushed this series so far, but I love this spot for the Mavs. I took Golden State ATS at home in the first two games, but this game is different. The Mavericks are now playing for their season. I expect a different kind of intensity from them tonight.

The second factor is the pressure is somewhat off of Dallas. No one is giving the Mavericks a chance to win the series at this point, and they are on the road tonight. They should play this game lose and with a ton of energy. I saw something from their role players in game four that I have not seen in this series yet, and that was confidence. That Game 4 they played should carry over into tonight, and I expect Dallas to shoot the three-ball very well once again. I am willing to fade the public with Dallas tonight!
