Atlanta vs Dallas: prediction for the NBA fixture
Nate McMillan built a great team. In the previous season Atlanta reached the conference finals, beating New York and Philadelphia along the way. Now Hawks won't be underestimated, everyone will respect them. Trae Young is the most dangerous player in the squad, he is the leader of the team. There are also other key players in McMillan's side - John Collins, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Clint Capela and Kevin Huerter.
Hawks managed to keep their leaders with the team, so their squad will be almost the same. Hawks' fans will have great hopes for a new season. They were looking great in preseason matches, beating Memphis (91:87) and Miami (127:92).
In the previous season Dallas have been eliminated in the first playoff round. Mavericks were beaten by the Clippers. As a result, Rick Carlisle left Texas team. He was replaced by Jason Kidd.
There are no significant changes in Dallas' squad. Club signed Frank Ntilikina and Sterling Brown. They are unlikely to be key players, but they will definitely strengthen Mavs' bench.
Looks like Mavericks are going the right way. During the preseason team from Texas won four games. Kidd's men recorded victories over Utah, Clippers, Charlotte and Milwaukee.
In 3 out of 5 most recent matches Hawks collected no more than 45 rebounds
In each of three most recent matches Mavericks scored at least 112 points
In each of four most recent matches Mavericks collected at least 44 rebounds
In preseason matches Atlanta failed to score many points, but after Young's return to the floor Hawks scored 127 points in the match against Miami. In the match against Mavericks Young will also play key role for the team, so we are expecting a high-scoring performance from the hosts.
Dallas scored 118,5 points per game during preseason matches. It is unlikely to change now. Seems like we will see a high-scoring game.
Our prediction - total over 223,5 points
Prediction: Total over 223,5

Dallas are playing well under Jason Kidd's management. Though, Mavs are considered an underdog in this match. We can't agree with bookmakers, we think that Mavericks have a chance for a victory.
Our second bet is on Dallas to win (Including OT)
