What you should know about Game 2
Shining starsStephen Curry's 3-point shot is 3.5 for Game 2, despite him having attempted at least 12 shots from deep in each of the previous four games. The MavericksIn two of his three previous games, he has attempted at least 10 3-pointers. His 3-point props for tonight are at 2.5.
Looney is your favorite: The Warriors have always relied onThe big man has been playing for nearly 32 minutes in each of the last two contests. This is a significant amount of time. Looney has provided nine assists and 27 boards in these contests, making him an attractive target for DFS, scoring, rebounding, and passing props.
More Risk Than Reward:He scored 3.5 more points than his points prop in Game 1. But I would be cautious about doubling down. He was the leader in shots for the Warriors, scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting the first quarter and didn't have foul problems despite sometimes having to guard. . He hasn't scored over 20 points in this postseason. His points prop currently stands at 15.5.

Notable: The Warriors won Game 1 by 25-points and were the 5.5-point favorite. They also received their 14th cover by at least 15 point. They are now 4-8-1 ATS in the game following these impressive covers. Six of these failures to cover were by at least nine points.
Best bet: More than 214.0 points The Warriors have been a dominant team at home this postseason with an average 116.6 PPG. They scored 112 points in game 1 and evidently took their foot off of the gas when it was a blowout. The Mavericks' Game 1 collapsed because they were ice cold. They couldn't get open looks early on and didn't find their rhythm. Tonight will be different as the Mavericks have had time to recuperate from seven games and now can focus on the Warriors. Both teams should score lots of points and the total will be over 214. — Andre Snellings
Your best option:under 26.5 points. Curry performed well in Game 1 and could've scored more if not pulled early. He scored 21 points on 7-for-16 shots from the floor. Curry scored 20.2 PPG in Curry's five games versus the Mavericks including Game 1. He has 39.6 FG%, 34.1 3P%, and 20.2 PPG in Curry’s five games. In those five games, Curry has scored less than 26.5 points only once. — Snellings
Your best option:More than 31.5 points. Doncic was well defended by the Warriors on Wednesday. Doncic was held to 20 points by the Warriors on postseason-low shooting of 6-of-18. Doncic had seven more turnovers than field goals in the playoff game, his first in his career. The Mavericks will adjust Doncic's position to ensure he is ready for a rebound game tonight.Eric Moody
Best bets: Warriors 2H (-2.5); Warriors 3Q (-1.5). The Warriors are a strong 3rd Quarter team for many years. This was evident in their win against Dallas. They outscored Dallas by ten points. Steve Kerr's ability to make adjustments from the locker room is remarkable. Dallas has struggled on the road in this postseason (apart from Game 7 at Phoenix). The Warriors are my favorite team in this game. They create distance in the second period, just like they have in previous playoffs. — Tyler Fulghum
Your best option:Over 20.5 points. Thompson failed to score in the first half, and only four field goals were made in Game 1. He recovered in the second period and scored 15 points. Thompson should be quick tonight. Moody
Your best option:under 6.5 assists. In Game 1, the Warriors were able to pass the ball around well and counter the Mavericks switches and closeouts. Multiple Golden State players racked up assists. Green only had nine assists potential and three assists in the second round, which is below his average for the postseason.Moody
