Sun’s tip, prognosis & odds from BILD sports betting

In the NBA, the playoffs are currently in full swing. The four series of the Conference Semifinals have so far offered a lot of highlights and excitement, but are now slowly coming to an end. The first elimination games are coming up in the next few days, including for the Phoenix Suns at the Dallas Mavericks. After five games, Phoenix are 3-2 ahead and could put the lid on Thursday night. Kick-off is at 3:30 a.m. German time at the American Airlines Center in Texas. Our prediction for this game is below Mavericks versus Sun’s tip.

So far, this series has been shaped enormously by home advantage. Each team has won all of their home games so far, with Phoenix’s strong performance in the regular season paying off. As the first seed, the Suns were allowed to play the first two games at home, and they won both with ease. But Dallas then used their own home advantage and grabbed the next two games. So after the equalizer, it was time for the important game five. Here, with Phoenix, the home team once again had the upper hand, and it became clear once again. The Suns need to win one of their last two games to end the streak.

Mavericks vs. Suns: The best odds in comparison

Mavericks Form & Bilanz Check

The Mavs have made a significant step forward this season. At the end of an overall strong first regular season under the new coach Jason Kidd instead of fourth place in the Western Conference, but of course special attention is always paid to the playoffs. In the two previous years, it was the end of the first round against the LA Clippers. This year Dallas has already made a step forward, superstar Luka Dončić won his first playoff series in a duel with the Utah Jazz.

Defense works at home

In order to win another series and move into the conference finals, Dallas now has to stretch. The first step is another home win. In the first two games in Texas, the Mavs managed to keep the Phoenix offensive, which was so strong, in check.

This averages 120 points in their home games, in games three and four it was less than 100 points per game. The defense becomes the key in the sixth game, as well as another strong performance from Dončić. The Slovenian has averaged a whopping 32 points, ten rebounds and seven assists in this series so far.

Mavericks Facts & Analysis

  • Regular season ended with a record of 52-30, 4th place in the west
  • Lost Game 5 to the Suns 80-110
  • Dončić (28) and Brunson (21) were the only two players with more than 10 points

We believe in the slight outsider in this game. The Mavs have only been able to keep up with the Suns at home in the series so far and in game six they can avert the end of the season with the home fans behind them. Should the defense cause Phoenix similar problems as in game three and four, Dallas can force a seventh game.

Suns Form & Bilanz Check

Phoenix is ​​perhaps the biggest favorite of the NBA’s broad contender field this season. The Suns have confirmed their surprise season from last year this season. After the second seed and a trip to the NBA Finals, the Arizona team has at least improved their regular season performance. With an outstanding 64 wins, the Suns secured the best record in the entire league, which they also fully deserved through incredibly strong and consistent performances. In the playoffs, it should also work out with the title this year in only the second attempt since 2010 (!).

Phoenix wants to avoid seventh game

So far, Phoenix is ​​at least on course for Conference Finals. The Suns should likely win that series even if they lose Game Six. Because in a potential game seven, the scene shifts back to Phoenix, where the Suns have been enormously dominant so far. But they should now also bring this to the field away from home, because a completely unpredictable game seven has to be prevented.

Especially since the difference in quality between the two teams in the Suns’ home games is so clear that Phoenix has already won two games by at least 20 points. In game five, which could be decisive, the Suns won 110:80, the most severe blowout of the series so far.

Sun’s Facts & Analysis

  • Regular season ended with a record of 64-18, No. 1 in the west
  • Won Game 5 against the Mavericks 110-80
  • Booker (28) and Ayton (20) as top scorers

The two games in Dallas have so far been much more defensive than the rest of the series. In the first two games in Phoenix there were at least 235 points in each case, in Texas it was a maximum of 212. In game six we again believe that the Mavs defense will be more active and uncomfortable at home and are therefore betting on under 215.5 points.
