NBA betting fans have been alarmed at the steep decline of the Dallas Mavericks since their epic collapse in the 2006 NBA Finals. Dallas began the online basketball betting season with a mark of 2-5 straight up and 2-5 against the NBA betting lines. The Mavericks were 2-2 against the NBA odds in road action to begin the season.
Dallas went over the NBA betting total in four out of their first seven games with an even 2-2 split against the NBA betting total in road action. Dallas was ranked a woeful 20th on offense and 23rd on the NBA betting defensive stat charts to begin the season.
Dirk Nowitzki, as you would expect, led the Mavericks in scoring to start the NBA betting season with an average of 23.6-points per game. Veteran Jason Kidd led in assists with an average of 9-per game and Nowitzki led in rebounds with 7.3-per game.
The Mavericks reached rock bottom on November 11 when they lost at home to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-106 as 5.5-point dogs against the NBA betting odds, letting down a sell out crowd. Perhaps that loss will signify when their NBA betting value was reclaimed as it turned off many in the NBA betting community.
The Los Angeles Lakers have left no doubt that they will be a championship contender this online basketball betting season.
The Lakers began the season with a record of 7-0 straight up and 6-1 against the NBA betting odds, which was quite a surprise as the Lakers are one of the NBA betting community’s favorite teams and, as a result, carry the least amount of NBA betting value most of the time.
The Lakers began the NBA betting season ranked number one on both offense and defense, showing that they will be ready to dominate on both sides of the court this NBA betting season. Kobe Bryant opened the NBA betting season as the Lakers leading scorer and assist man while Pau Gasol led in rebounds.
