We have all 30 NBA teams involved in action on Monday, November 7, including these two inter-conference rivals, so make sure you don’t miss out on the best Nets vs. Mavericks betting pick and odds.
Dallas is hoping to get the fourth consecutive win when they host Brooklyn at American Airlines Center, while the Nets are looking for the third straight W. The Mavericks are -6.5 favorites on WynnBet NY Sportsbook, while the total is set at 214.5 points. These inter-conference rivals have already met once this season, and the Mavs won that game 129-125 in overtime in Brooklyn.
Nets recorded back-to-back wins
The Brooklyn Nets (4-6, 2-7-1 ATS) recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season as they beat the Washington Wizards and Charlotte Hornets on the road. That’s 2-1 for the Nets following the sacking of Steve Nash and that’s 2-0 without suspended Kyrie Irving! Brooklyn will conclude its three-game road trip with this game in Dallas.
Although they shot only 39.3% from the field, the Nets managed to defeat the Hornets 98-94 in a low-scoring affair. Brooklyn’s slightly better defense decided the tilt; the visitors had eight steals opposite Charlotte’s three, were better in blocks (10-6), and committed four turnovers less than the hosts. Kevin Durant led the Nets with 27 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks. Cameron Thomas followed him with 21 points, four boards, and four assists, while Nic Claxton had 11 points, team-high nine rebounds, game-high four rejections, and game-high three steals.
PG Kyrie Irving will miss at least three more games with a suspension. SF T.J. Warren (foot) is out, while PG Ben Simmons (knee) is questionable to play in Dallas on Monday.
Mavericks got an edge over the Raptors
The Dallas Mavericks (5-3, 3-4-1 ATS) secured another tight victory at home and now are on a three-game winning run. After losing the opener of a five-game home stand to the Oklahoma City Thunder in overtime, the Mavericks beat the Magic, Jazz, and Raptors. In the latest one against Toronto, Dallas had a double-digit lead going into the fourth quarter but nearly dropped a victory last in the game. Luckily, the Mavs escaped with a 111-110 W.
Luka Doncic continued with excellent displays. He opened this season with an eighth straight 30+ point performance as he led the Mavericks with 35 points, team-high eight rebounds, six assists, and team-high three steals. Spencer Dinwiddie had 21 points, team-high seven dishes, and two thefts, while Christian Wood finished with 13 points and five boards.
PF Davis Bertans (knee) and PG Frank Ntilikina (ankle) are questionable to feature on Monday against the Nets.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Dallas Mavericks Pick
It’s funny how the Nets recorded two straight victories now when Irving and Simmons are out, but I don’t think they will get the third in a row here in Dallas. Luke Doncic proved to be too much to handle for the Nets in the previous H2H ten days ago in Brooklyn as he posted his first triple-double of the campaign. I don’t think the visitors will stop him now either. The Mavs are better in both offense and defense, and without Irving and Simmons, I doubt the Nets can resist the hosts offensively.
Pick: Take the Mavericks at -5.5 (-120)
Dallas has the 6th best defense in the NBA which allows 109.1 points per game, while the Nets are not bad themselves with 113.0 ppg allowed to the opposition. Neither offense is among the top 10 right now, while both teams belong to the bottom 10 when it comes to pace. In fact, the Mavericks are rock bottom with just 95.4 possessions per 48 minutes. Brooklyn will be weakened on offense, so I expect to see a low-scoring game. Under is 4-0 in the Nets’ last four overall, while Under is 4-1 in Brooklyn’s previous five road games.
Pick: Go Under 216.5 points (-125)
