Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 4: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

After an extremely back-and-forth Game 3 on Saturday afternoon, the Dallas Mavericks were able to take a 2-1 series lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Before the series heads back to OKC, we have Game 4 on Monday night, and we have our best Thunder vs. Mavericks picks for you.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 4 betting picks and predictions

Thunder +1 (-110)

It was a very competitive Game 3 over the weekend, with several lead changes throughout. Although the Mavs were able to hang on, we’re expecting the Thunder to keep things even closer, if not even up the series.

In fact, we’d even recommend making a small wager on OKC’s money line as well, as there is concern regarding Luka Doncic and his injuries.

He was already questionable due to a knee sprain and ankle soreness heading into Game 3 and seeing him go down multiple times within the last few minutes of Saturday’s game with lower back pain gives him the same status for Game 4.

Following a six-game series in the first round, Doncic is simply breaking down. While Dallas also has a star in Kyrie Irving, they’re only going to go as far as Doncic can take them.

We’ve seen PJ Washington step up in a massive way the past two games but expecting him to score 27+ for the third straight game simply doesn’t seem likely.

He scored just 10 points in Game 1, and while the Mavs snuck away with the Game 3 victory, Doncic scored just one basket in the entire third quarter.

That extended into the fourth, where he didn’t score his first points of the final frame until there were just six minutes remaining in the game.

In other words, anticipating Dallas to hold on while Doncic isn’t at his best is not something we anticipate. Let’s not forget that OKC won Game 1 of this series by 22 points, so having them keep things close, if not pull off the outright upset, is more than reasonable for tonight.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander over 45.5 Points+Assists+Rebounds (-115)

If we’re expecting the Thunder to bounce back in Game 4, it’s only fitting that our best player prop pick is focused on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

The MVP finalist has become a household name after the season he just had, which included a whopping 51 games scoring 30 or more points.

He’s the perfect target for a combination prop, as he fills up the stat sheet in multiple ways. While he’s known for his prolific scoring, he’s just as great at pulling down boards and dishing out helpers. In their Game 1 win, he was just a single rebound and assist shy of a triple-double.

In Game 2, he had 33 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists, and most recently, he had 31 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.

As you can see, SGA is a model of consistency, so we aren’t concerned about the rather high value for this prop. It’s also worth noting that a banged-up Luka Doncic only allows SGA to take over the game even more so, and Dallas’ biggest concern all season has been their defense.

It may not be the most unique approach to the player prop markets, but we’re rolling with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to yet again fill up the stat sheet.
