Pick against the spread, best player prop for Mavericks vs. Raptors on MLK Day

We go over the lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for Dallas vs. Toronto, giving out a pick against the spread and our favorite player prop bet.

The Dallas Mavericks will visit the Toronto Raptors in an MLK Day matchup and tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The Mavericks are just starting to get rolling thanks to the return of their second star and the Raptors are looking to get a big win after starting of the year slow. Let’s go over some of the top point spread and prop bet options for the matchup on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Toronto Raptors, 7:30 p.m. ET TSN

Pick ATS: Mavericks +5

Dallas went toe-to-toe with the Eastern Conference-leading Milwaukee Bucks earlier this week and nearly came out on top. Luka Doncic is in MVP form and Kristaps Porzingis is working back into shape after missing the start of the season while recovering from a meniscus. Nothing has been easy this year with the Raptors playing away from home and haven’t won by 5 or more points all season. I like the Mavericks’ odds of bouncing back from their poor shooting performance against the Chicago Bulls.

Player Prop: Pascal Siakam to record double-double (+263)

Siakam has just two double-doubles on the year but the odds here are too good to pass up. He’s Toronto’s leading rebounder and Dallas lacks power forward depth behind Porzingis. Dallas gives up the seventh-most rebounds to opposing teams.
