The betting lines for Game 1 have seen significant movement since last week, with the total points line increasing by 4.5 points and the Celtics’ side going up by a full point. At this point, jumping into the betting action may not offer much value to bettors.

While I agree with both line movements, the increase in the total points line aligns more with my analysis. Boston’s offensive strategy presents a unique challenge for Dallas, especially with players like Kristaps Porzingis and Al Horford who can stretch the floor and draw defenders out of the paint.

On the defensive end, Luka Doncic poses a threat to the Celtics with his offensive prowess. Doncic will look to exploit mismatches against Jrue Holiday, Derrick White, and Porzingis to create scoring opportunities for the Mavericks.

With both teams expected to excel offensively, this game is likely to be high-scoring. While the current total points line may not be ideal for betting, keeping an eye on any changes before tip-off or exploring in-game betting options could present better opportunities.

**Lean: OVER 216.5**

In conclusion, the matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and the Boston Celtics presents an intriguing betting opportunity with the potential for a high-scoring game. Stay tuned for more NBA insights and best bets.
