Dallas split the first two games of this basketball betting series at home before scoring a 93-87 win at OKC in game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead. The series will return to Dallas for game 5 on Wednesday night.
The Mavericks proved to have a more balanced attack in game 3 as Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion each had 18 points while Jason Kidd and Jason Terry added 13 points. Kidd also had 8 assists while Tyson Chandler added 15 rebounds for a complete team victory.
Nowitzki has been outstanding in the playoffs so far as he has averaged 27.7 points per game while Kidd has 7.5 assists per game and Chandler has 9.5 rebounds per playoff outing. Dallas has failed to get the money in just 1 out of their previous 13 playoff games this season.
Kevin Durant continues to prove to be an outstanding NBA sports betting asset for Oklahoma City as he has a team leading 29 points per game in the playoffs while getting help from Russell Westbrook, who is averaging 23.7 points per game so far in the playoffs.
Dallas has had their share of struggles against Oklahoma City with just 4 payouts in their last 16 games with the Thunder as the series has gone over the total in 5 of the last 7 games between the two teams.
The Mavericks have actually fared better with the NBA betting odds at OKC with 4 payouts in their last 5 games as 8 of the last 9 games between these two teams at Oklahoma City have gone under the total.
