Warriors vs Mavericks: In the 2022 Western Conference Finals, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors will face Luka Doncic. Also, the Dallas Mavericks are pitting the Western Conference superpower against the next great thing. The first game is on Wednesday. The Warriors were seeded; third, while the Mavericks were seeded fourth. Few are surprised that Golden State has made it this far. They have battled through an injury-plagued season to beat the Nuggets in five games and the Grizzlies in six.
On the other hand, Dallas pushed through the Jazz in six games before defeating the No. 1 seed. And defending conference champion Suns in seven games. They won Games 6 and 7 with 27 and 33 points combined. During the season, Dallas won three of four games against Golden State. In the two most recent games, Doncic was particularly unstoppable.

Warriors vs Mavericks Predictions
Most betting services see Golden State as a -225 favorite to win the series. Dallas is rated +185. Despite the difference in the odds, the Warriors in 7 (+300) are the most likely outcome on the NBA odds chart. Also, followed by the Warriors in 5 (+350). Dallas’ regular-season success is one example. Green appeared in only one of the games, while Thompson appeared in two. A completely healthy Warriors team will be challenging to manage for a Mavericks team that is still developing. Moreover, Doncic will receive him, and he will lead Dallas to a handful of victories. However, there is far too much star power and experience on the other side — at least for another season. It’s difficult to say how many games it will take, but Golden State to win is worth a wager on betting apps.
When most people think of NBA betting, they think about offense. Please think twice. Dallas is second in fewest points allowed this season, while Golden State is sixth. In games that conclude under the total, the Warriors are sixth in the league (56-37-2).
Steph Curry has averaged 26.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 5.6 assists in the playoffs. His scoring dropped substantially (to barely 20 points per game) against Dallas. But his rebounds (6.8) and assists (7.8) increased significantly. Against Golden State, Doncic averaged 31.5 points per game in the playoffs. However, his rebounding (10.1 to 9.0) and assists (6.6 to 5.5) have decreased.
The Warriors’ bench has scored 39.9 points per game in the playoffs. And the most of any team, and has a plus-minus rating of +1.6. In both categories, the Mavs are ranked 10th and 11th, respectively. Also, the projected returns of Otto Porter Jr. and Andre Igoudala, Golden State’s reserves are likely to grow even more.
