Dallas Mavericks vs NY Knicks by FairPlayBet

Dallas-Mavericks
VS
NY-Knicks
How much bookies overated New York Knicks, it really becomes funny sometimes. The same was when Knicks have played in Boston couple days ago and the same is tonight when they will visit Dallas to meet with defending champions. I mean odds 1.80 for Mavericks to win this game in ML are really great odds. I expected to see here handicap line of 5-6 points on guests. So, when I saw this 1.80 for ML, the first thing I did was to check if maybe Nowitcki is in some injury problem. And he is not. But there is slighty problem with Mavericks' starting center Brendan Haywood who sprained his left ankle the other day against Oklahoma City Thunder and he is now doubtful for tonight. But still, there are chances for him to fully recover until the game starts or to at least have limited minutes on the court. Even with Haywood completely out, from my angle there are couple points of handicap that are missing on the side of New York Knicks.

 

Now if we take a look on recent result of Dallas Mavericks then there are really couple bad results in recent games. Its score in previous six games was only 1 win and 5 defeats. But in the same time Dirk Nowitzki has started to play in well known form. Also in previous game away against current leading team in West Coast (Oklahoma Thunder) Dallas Mavericks were so close to take a win. IMO there is clear improvement in Dallas' form.

 

More reasons for betting on hosts in this game we can find in recent form of New York Knicks. In previous head to head, Knicks won at home 104-97 but since then new basketball sensation Jeremy Lin is not anymore in great shape.

 

Brilliant NBA analysts have calculated that Lin is in a really rough period right now. He has missed even 20 of 27 last shots and also made even 14 turnovers while at the same time had only 8 assists in last couple straight road defeats.

 

It could be also important fact that Mavericks are impressive in head to head meetings with Knicks at home. They won eight and lost only one in last nine. Five times Mavericks outplayed New York Knicks with huge points difference.

 

Regards to all readers, the new NBA reports are coming tomorrow as well with couple previews from ATP & WTA in Indian Wells in the upcoming days. pin
