NBA Odds - Pistons at Mavericks

NBA odds will be posted for Thursday online basketball betting preseason action as the Dallas Mavericks host the Detroit Pistons.

NBA odds handicappers will have their choice of two online basketball betting commodities that are re-tooling themselves for the upcoming regular season. The Detroit Pistons had a NBA odds record of 39-43 straight up and 34-48 against the spread.

The Pistons had one of the worst offenses in online basketball betting last year as they ranked 28th in scoring.  John Kuester has arrived for his first head coaching gig with the NBA odds and will have a new look roster to work with in his attempt to get Detroit back among the NBA’s elite.

Kuester has a lot of familiarity with Detroit as he arrived from the division rival Cleveland Cavaliers where he coordinated their offense.  While Kuester may be known as an outstanding offensive mind he wants to build a defense that has appeal with everyone playing the NBA odds.

“The thing that has to happen from day one is we’re going to have to really preach what its going to take to be a great defensive team”, said Kuester.  “That’s going to be our main goal right from the get-go”.

The Pistons signed Ben Gordon as a free agent this past off-season which will certainly make them a more attractive NBA odds team on the board this year.  The Dallas Mavericks enter preseason NBA odds action with their best player having gone through a lot of off season turmoil.

Dirk Nowitzki had to go through a high profile breakup with his ex-fiancé and her incarceration and pregnancy claims.  Nowitzki will again be the Mavericks go to man with the NBA odds.  He had a phenomenal playoffs series last year against Denver as he averaged 34 points and 11 rebounds per game in Dallas’ 5 game series loss.

Guard Jason Terry said to expect the same up-tempo style with Dallas in this upcoming NBA odds campaign.  “With our style of play, we’re going to be up and down, we’re going to be running”, said Terry.  Dallas finished 50-32 straight up and 40-42 against the spread last year.  This game can be seen on NBA TV at 8:30 eastern time.
