This series shifts to Dallas for Game 3 with the Mavericks having won both of the first two games in Los Angeles. Dončić was the driving force behind their two victories, racking up 52 and 53 total points, rebounds, and assists, respectively. With Dončić back on his home court and looking to give Dallas a commanding 3-0 lead, give me the over on this combined prop.

Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks vs. New York Knicks

Over 25.5 Points (-125)

We hit the over on this prop Wednesday and it’s a bit surprising that the number hasn’t changed at all for Game 3. Young has been the leader of the Hawks’ offense, scoring 32 and 30 points, respectively, in the first two games. He attempted a total of 43 shots and 13 free throws and should continue to have a high usage rate with this series moving to Atlanta.

Julius Randle, New York Knicks at Atlanta Hawks

To Record a Double-Double (-140)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.71 units)

It’s been rough series thus far for Randle, who shot a combined 11-for-39 from the field in the first two games. At least the volume of shot attempts was there, propelling him to 15 points in both contests. He also grabbed 12 rebounds in both games and has now posted a double-double in four of five games against Atlanta this year. There’s no reason why he can’t notch another one tonight.
