|Pick 1||Golden State Warriors Moneyline @ -300|
|Pick 2||Luka Doncic Under 9.5 Rebounds @ +104|

|Parlay Odds||+344 ($20 bet wins $68.97)|
Pick #1: Golden State Warriors Moneyline (-300)
The Golden State Warriors have historically done well in potential elimination games at home. But they have not done well at covering the spread in those situations, as they are often heavy favorites like they are here. Instead of laying three possessions of points with the Warriors here, their moneyline is a nice parlay piece at the current odds.
Pick #2: Luka Doncic Under 9.5 Rebounds (+104)
For the second leg of this Mavericks vs Warriors Game 5 parlay, we look at Luka Doncic’s rebounds. He averaged over 10 per game in the last two games of this series, but averaged just 6.0 per game in the first two games in Golden State. The shooting from the Warriors should be better at home, reducing his chances to run up his rebounding numbers.
Pick #3: Andrew Wiggins Over 16.5 Points (-116)
Andrew Wiggins has scored 17 or more points in six of his last 10 playoff games, dating back to the start of the second round against the Memphis Grizzlies. He has scored 16 or more points in three of the four games in this series, and has shot 45% or better in three of four games against the Mavs in the Western Conference Finals. Expect another efficient performance from a player in Wiggins who is playing some of his best basketball.
Mavericks vs Warriors Game 5 Preview
The Golden State Warriors failed to close out the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4 on Tuesday night, but they have another chance to get the job done on Thursday at home. To do so, the Warriors will need to slow down the Mavericks’ three-point shooting, which was off the charts in Game 4. Dallas made 20 threes on Tuesday, and their shooting is the only thing that can keep them alive in this series at this point.
To that end, the play of Reggie Bullock, Maxi Kleber, and Dorian Finney-Smith will be essential to the survival of the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas has been lost in this series when they are not connecting from distance, and very competitive when they have been. The Mavericks are still facing a tall task in this series, but some hot shooting could at least put the pressure on the Warriors to some extent.
