The Dallas Mavericks find themselves as big road favorites despite their 1-7 road record away from American Airlines Center.
Offensively they have been inconsistent at times, but are in a favorable spot today against a Detroit Pistons team giving up the second most-points per game on average at 117.7, and are fresh off an outing where they surrendered 140 to the New York Knicks.
The Pistons hope to snap their three game losing streak overall, and five straight in the head-to-head against the Mavs dating back to the 2019-20 season, but will have to do so as big home underdogs.
The Parlay: (+193)
- Dallas Mavericks First Quarter Winner (No Push) (-185)
- Luka Dončić Over 2.5 Made 3-Point Shots (-105)

Dallas Mavericks First Quarter Winner (No Push) (-185)
The Mavericks struggles away from home usually come in the second half of games when they are trying to close things out. On the road this season early on in games, they have gotten out to quick starts averaging the sixth-highest first quarter points per game total at 30.
This is a great spot for the Mavs to build up a lead early against a Pistons team giving up an average of 31 first quarter points per game at home defensively (28th in the NBA), and only manage an average of 26.7 (also 28th).

Luka Dončić Over 2.5 Made 3-Point Shots (-105)
The Mavericks are a team that attempt a lot of 3-point shots. They average the fifth highest attempts per game at 39.4, making on average 34.4 percent of their attempts from deep.
Overall, the Pistons are not bad defensively defending beyond the arc, but there have been games as of late where they have shown vulnerability defending from deep. Over their last four games, Detroit has surrendered 18 made three’s to the Utah Jazz, and most recently 16 to the New York Knicks.
This is a great spot for Luka Dončić who’s averaging a career high in minutes per game at 37.4, and field goals attempted. Although he’s averaging 31.5 percent shooting from deep, he’s historically shot the ball very well from beyond the arc in the head-to-head’s.
He’s gone over this set total of 2.5 in four of the five games versus the Pistons in his career. The attempts from deep will be there from Dončić.
