Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks will be travelling to Milwaukee on Sunday night to face Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. Here are our Mavericks-Bucks picks. 

The Dallas Mavericks (9-9) will wrap up a three-game road trip on Sunday and are hoping to end their three-game losing skid. They will not have an easy go of it, as they're facing the second-best team in the NBA in the Milwaukee Bucks (13-5). 

The Mavericks are just 1-6 on the road this season, while the Bucks are 10-2 at home, despite missing forward Khris Middleton so far this season.

Here are our Mavericks-Bucks NBA picks for Sunday (odds via FanDuel Sportsbook, BetMGM, DraftKings Sportsbook; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Mavericks vs. Bucks ATS Pick

Bucks -6.5 (-114) ★★★★★

While many eyes will be on the superstar matchup between Doncic and Antetokounmpo, their supporting casts may make the difference. Despite missing Middleton, the Bucks have played excellent basketball so far this season, led by an NBA best defense, according to defensive rating. On the other hand, the Mavericks have been terrible on the road so far with a 1-6 record away from Dallas. 

FanDuel is currently the only sportsbook offering the spread at -6.5 in favor of the Bucks, with most other sportsbooks currently sitting at -7.5. See if you can get in before this changes.

Mavericks vs. Bucks O/U Pick 

Under 214.5 (-105) ★★★★

The trends point towards the Under, as a struggling offense meets the NBA's best defense. The Mavericks have failed to score over 105 in five of their last seven contests. The Bucks aren’t exactly lighting it up on offense either, as they sit in the bottom half of the league in points per game and have averaged Under 110 points per game in their last seven. 

The top sportsbooks are in consensus with the Over/Under, setting it at 214.5, but BetMGM currently offers the best odds at -105. Look to place your bet there if you are picking the Under. 

Mavericks vs. Bucks Prop Pick

Doncic Under 30.5 points ★★★

Doncic has averaged 33.4 points per game so far this season, but he may find things harder than usual against the Bucks defense. While they are missing Middleton, guard Jrue Holiday is one of the best perimeter defenders in the NBA and will surely be tasked with defending Doncic for much of the game. 

While the standard is extremely high, Doncic has scored 24 or less points in two of his last three games, in large part due to the Toronto Raptors and Denver Nuggets limiting his shot attempts. Look for the Bucks to try to do the same.
