Dallas Mavericks 2021-22 Season
The Dallas Mavericks in 2020-21 ultimately fell short in the playoffs, losing in a tough Game 7 to the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round. It was still a great season, however, and most importantly franchise star Luka Doncic took more steps forward in his already illustrious young career.
The 2021-22 season has Dallas in a similar boat through the All-Star break, sitting in the No. 5 seed again led by Luka Doncic. A trade of Kristaps Porzingis for Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Bertans ended the potential for the European duo to lead the Mavs together, officially making it Doncic’s team.

Betting on the Dallas Mavericks
The Mavericks seem likely to make the playoffs, but it will not be an easy road to gauranteeing their postseason berth. Here are some of the popular bet types to consider when following the Dallas Mavericks for the rest of the year.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
If spread bets seem tough to win, you're not wrong. Some bettors elect to make things a little more simple from a prediction standpoint and focus on the moneyline, which is a wager simply on which team will win the game. Let's take a look at another example:
- Dallas Mavericks -140
- Memphis Grizzlies +120
Again, the Mavericks are favorites. To read the odds, think in terms of $10 bets. If you bet Dallas at -140 and it won, you'd profit $10 for every $14 wagered. A bet on the Grizzlies would profit $12 for every $10 wagered.
The Mavericks are ninth in the league against-the-spread (ATS) at 32-26-1, which compared to their actual record of 35-24, is pretty solid.
Spread bets are bets on the "spread" of the game -- in other words, the expected margin of victory of the favorite. Let's look at an example:
- Dallas Mavericks (-4.5)
- San Antonio Spurs (+4.5)
In the betting market, favorites in American odds will have a minus sign; underdogs will have a plus sign. In this example, the Mavericks are 4.5-point favorites, which means in order for a spread bet to cash they'd have to beat the Spurs by five or more points. Any other outcome would lose the bet.
The 2021-22 Mavs are the worst team in the NBA to bet the over on. Dallas is dead last in the league in that category, with a 20-37-2 record for the over, so far.
This refers to an over/under bet, also called a total, which is a wager on how many points will be scored in a game. Say the Mavs played Pelicans and the total was set at 240 points. In that case, an over bet would cash at 241 or more whereas an under would hit at 239 or fewer points. It's possible it could land at exactly 240, which is called a push; all bets are refunded in that case.
Mavericks Prop Bets
It's hard to find a player more exciting on a night to night basis than Luka Doncic, who seems on the verge of winning an MVP. If you wanted to bet solely on him, that would be called a player prop bet, and it would be tied to some stat of his. For example, you could bet whether Luka will score over/under 29.5 points or whether he would record a triple-double.
Mavericks Future Odds
Expectations will always be high in Dallas with Luka Doncic on the team, which means bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Mavericks futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Mavs to make the playoffs , win the Southwest Division, win the Western Conference, win the NBA Finals , or even individual awards like Luka Doncic winning league MVP.
How to Bet on the Mavericks
Sports betting is not currently legal in Texas, and there does not seem to be much in the way of progress for it to be legalized in 2022. Texas politicians have been largely opposed to sports betting in recent years, but sentiment within the state could be shifting. Most expect that any potential legislation could be voted on in the 2023 state general election at the earliest. Stay tuned for updates on The Action Network's Texas betting page regarding sports betting legislation in the state.
