Luka Doncic Over 35+ Points (+108) on FanDuel
The real way to get value on a Luka prop has to be going for 35 versus his total (33.5 at -114). If you think he can get over that total, you might as well stretch to 35 points and get plus-money.
The Mavs went from a team that "needs more than just Luka" to a team that has suddenly gotten a solid list of contributors besides Doncic, but it hasn't hurt his output. From Spencer Dinwiddie's 30 points in just 25 minutes to help close out Phoenix in Game 7, or Jalen Brunson's 21.8 points per game over the last five games of that series, the Mavs have become more versatile while Doncic still dominates like he always has (32.6 points, 9.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists against the Suns).
Jordan Poole Over 3.5 Rebounds (+110) on DraftKings
Poole has gone over this total only three times this postseason, but given the plus-money and the fact that the Mavs are just ninth among playoff teams in shooting percentage (45.3%), there's a solid chance to at least corral four boards in this game.
The Mavs are also 13th among all playoff teams in opponent rebounds per game, allowing 43.8, which is another trend that lends itself to more boards for the Warriors, including Poole.
Jalen Brunson Over 22.5 P+A (-113) on FanDuel
Brunson continues to step up and not only help Doncic with the scoring load, but also himself and his potential new contract this offseason.
For this game's purposes, though, Brunson has put up 22.9 points and 3.5 assists per game during the postseason, going over this total in two of his last three games alone. The comfort level grows a bit here with this combo given the fact that his scoring can take care of a majority of the number, giving plenty of wiggle room if the assists come in a little bit lower.
