Betting basketball tension is also high for the Dallas Mavericks as they have already blown a huge lead at Portland in a playoff loss and do not want to face a 7th NBA sports betting matchup in this series.
The Portland Trailblazers will host the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday in game 6 of their NBA Western Conference quarterfinals playoff series. Tipoff time for the telecast on TNT is set for 10:30 PM ET. Sports Gambling will have side and total odds on this matchup so be sure and have your account open and ready for action.
The Mavericks lead the best of seven series 3-2 after their 93-82 win in gam5 at Dallas. Dirk Nowitzki of Dallas had 25 points and Jason Terry had 20 to lead the Mavericks as they got the money as 5 point favorites with the NBA playoffs odds.
It is interesting to note that Portland has failed to get the cash in the first 5 games of this playoff series despite winning two games. The last 2 games of this playoff series and 3 of the 5 games overall have gone under the total.
Nowitzki has been a key playoff asset so far with the NBA betting odds as he leads Dallas with 26.2 points per game after being the Mavericks top scorer in the regular season. Tyson Chandler has also been a key component to Dallas’ playoff efforts as he has 10 rebounds per game in this series while Terry is averaging 16.4 points per game.
In game 4 at Portland the Mavericks blew a 23 point lead and lost the game 84-82 although they did manage to get the money as 4 point dogs. Brandon Roy, who has had injury issues for Portland this year, sparked the comeback with 24 points in the game.
So far for Portland LaMarcus Aldridge has been their best offensive weapon as he has led the Blazers with 20.2 points per game in this series. Gerald Wallace has been another key asset with 11.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
Portland came up flat in game 5 but should roar back to life with a full effort as they face betting basketball elimination at home in this one.
