Dallas Mavericks NBA Betting

When the Dallas Mavericks resume their season on July 31 against the rival Houston Rockets, they will do so as one of the surprise teams in basketball. Dallas emerged as one of the top offensive teams in the Association and ranks third for scoring. All eyes will be on 2020 All-Star SG Luka Doncic, who was 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year. Doncic leads the Mavericks with 28.7 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game. While some gamblers see Dallas as a potential sleeper, a mediocre defense ranked 15th in the Association for points allowed tempers enthusiasm.

The Dallas Mavericks are one team that really doesn’t want to see the season end without a resolution. They are a longshot to win the NBA title and probably wouldn’t get past the many contenders in the Western Conference. But with a record of 40-27 when play was halted they have more wins than in any of the previous three seasons and were situated nicely to end a playoff drought that spanned each of those campaigns. All you’re asking for is a chance and with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis the Mavs have a duo that rivals any in the NBA.

Season Review

Coming off his Rookie of the Year campaign, Doncic emerged as a contender for the league’s MVP award with his stellar play. He’s a big reason why the Mavericks are a playoff team in the West. He got plenty of help, though, with the Mavs showing off a deep roster that they haven’t had in years past. Doncic has stunning numbers playing against teams that game plan to stop him. The Mavs have options with KP averaging 19.2 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. is an efficient scorer with 15.8 per game, and Seth Curry knocks down over 45 percent of his triples while averaging 12.6 points.

Doncic is sixth in the NBA with 28.7 points per game and his 8.7 assists are fourth-best. He and Atlanta’s Trae Young are the only players to rank among the top six in both categories. The difference between the two young studs is their team’s placement in the standings. The Mavs are 40-27 and locked into a playoff spot. The Hawks, meanwhile, are floundering at the bottom of the Eastern Conference with a record of 20-47.

Unlike most teams in the NBA, the Mavs have been a better team on the road with a record of 21-12. The win total is the second-highest in the Western Conference behind the Lakers and the fourth-best overall. Their inability to win consistently at home has cost them a better record and a higher placement in the standings. They are 19-15 at American Airlines Center and with just two more wins they would be sitting fifth. As it stands the Mavs are just 1.5 games behind OKC and Houston and 2.5 games back of Utah for a top-four seed. That may end up meaning absolutely nothing depending on how things work out with schedule when and if the league resumes playing.

One thing the Mavs have done this year to keep them in contention is avoid a lengthy losing streak. In their final game before the league shut down, they beat Denver 113-97 ending a two-game losing streak. Six times this season the Mavs dropped two in a row. After the second loss they followed up with a win. With Milwaukee losing three straight before the stoppage, the Mavs are the only team in the Association not to endure a three-game losing streak.

Recent Games

The Mavs were one of five teams to play two games the week the NBA was shuttered due to the spread of the coronavirus. They opened a back-to-back set with a loss at San Antonio, their second straight overall and 17th loss in their last 18 visits to the Alamo. Doncic had 38 points and the Mavs failed to get the season sweep against their long-time nemesis.

The game against Denver on Mar. 11 turned out to be the final contest before the league announced it was suspending the season when Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz tested positive for the virus. Rick Carlisle and his players got the news during the third quarter of their 113-97 win. It guaranteed that the Mavs would be the only team not to lose three in a row. That is unless the season resumes at some point later on. “Very concerned, but it’s not necessarily about basketball. Obviously this is much bigger than basketball,” Mavs owner Mark Cuban said.

In a game that featured high scoring Europeans Doncic and Denver’s Nikola Jokic, it was Boban Marjanovic who outdid them all. The Serbian dropped 31 on the Nugs hitting 12 of 20 shots with 17 rebounds in 31 minutes. Marjanovic got some extra playing time with Porzingis getting a scheduled off day to rest his sore knee. KP and the rest of the league will have time to recuperate with the league on hiatus until further notice.
