After all of the ups and downs for the Warriors this year, be it injuries or star players struggling, the team jumped out to a convincing Game 1 victory over Dallas. Steph Curry was not only the game-high scorer, but also led both teams with 12 rebounds. Klay Thompson took some time but came alive in the second half. But, the real story was how hot Andrew Wiggins was right out of the gate. The Warriors’ 25-point victory over the Mavericks came with 112 points scored, but more impressively was limiting Luka Doncic to more turnovers than made shots.
It wasn’t just Doncic who fell victim to the Warriors defense, as Dallas shot just 31-of-86 from the floor — 11-of-48 from 3. Draymond Green was doing his part in stopping Doncic, but the majority of Mavs players couldn’t get a bucket if their season depended on it. Dorian Finney-Smith was nonexistent, and Reggie Bullock struggled going 3-for-10 from 3. Jalen Brunson struggled getting his 14, and Spencer Dinwiddie provided a lone half-spark with 17 points off the bench.

Dallas vs. Golden State First Quarter Point Spread +/- 2
Dallas cannot come back out with the same level of effort and execution and expect to hang in this series. The general belief is that Doncic and his teammates cannot be THAT bad again. They will not have to be to lose the first quarter, which is a key spot here for Golden State to maintain Game 1’s momentum. The Warriors got a bonus from Wiggins’ hot start without needing much from Curry, Thompson or Jordan Poole off the bench. While the world is anticipating Dallas coming out hot, at least trying to balance some of that disaster in the early game, the smarter play would be expecting the Warriors starters to improve. This is a veteran team with champions leading it and it is difficult to think Golden State and Steve Kerr are resting on their Game ! blowout. Game 2 may not get out of hand, but the Warriors will look sharper in the first quarter.

Jalen Brunson O/U 4.5 Rebounds
The Mavericks will need everyone to play better in order to simply stay alive in this game and the series. Part of that is scoring, but there is a profitable pathway to smaller market props like Jalen Brunson rebounds. Awesemo’s free projection has Brunson finishing with 5.1 boards against the Warriors. OddsShopper has a 57% xWin chance of Brunson going over his total with a 27% xROI on hitting the prop.
There is certainly built-in risk with this Brunson prop, but that is not the case at BetMGM. FREE money awaits you at BetMGM and all you have to do is bet $10 to win $200 if either the Mavericks or Warriors hit just one 3-pointer tonight.

Kevon Looney O/U 7.5 Points
Another softer player prop market to exploit thanks to the help of OddsShopper and Awesemo is Kevon Looney rebounding tonight. Dallas did not do much to keep the Warriors from doing whatever they wanted last game, so Looney’s five boards may not be the best representation of what he is capable of tonight. Awesemo has him projected for 8.8 rebounds, smashing the over on this total. OddsShopper has a 65% xWin chance of Looney going over 7.5 boards with a 15% xROI on hitting the prop.
Best NBA Player Prop Bet Today: Kevon Looney OVER 7.5 Rebounds (-135 BetMGM)
