NBA betting fans recall these two teams met in the 2006 Finals. The NBA basketball betting landscape is quite different now. The Dallas Mavericks have been a poor NBA betting value this year as inconsistent play coupled with their strong NBA basketball betting reputation as an annual contender has been costly.
Dallas had an overall NBA betting record of 25-19 straight up and 19-25 against the NBA betting odds. The Mavericks have been something of a better NBA betting commodity on the road with a mark of 14-10 against the spread. In over/under NBA betting action Dallas was 14-10 over the total in road action.
The Mavericks ranked 11th overall on offense and 16th overall on defense. Dirk Nowitzki, as usual, has been Dallas’ main NBA betting asset as he led the team in scoring with an average of nearly 26 points per game. He also led the team in rebounds with almost 9 per game.
There are times when the Miami Heat, according to many NBA basketball betting handicappers, should be called the Miami Wade as superstar Dwyane Wade is redefining the term “one man team”. Miami was a worthless NBA betting commodity without Wade last year but his return from injury has put the Heat into contention.
Miami had an overall NBA betting record of 24-19 straight up and 20-21-2 against the NBA betting odds. The Heat got hot from January 9 through January 26 as they went on a NBA betting stretch in which they got the cash in 7 out of 9 games. Miami ranked 23rd overall on offense while ranking 11th overall on defense.
Wade was the main NBA betting asset, and offense, with an average of almost 29 points per game. Not at all a ball hog, he also led in assists with just over 7 per game. From January 7 through January 26 the Heat went over the total in 7 out of 10 games.
