Online basketball betting value has not been with either team this season, however, as both have struggled to beat the NBA betting board. For the first few weeks of the online basketball betting season it appeared as if the Dallas Mavericks were in serious trouble to climb above .500, let alone get back into post season contention for the NBA betting season.
But Dallas rallied to get back into the western conference race and has had their best online basketball betting success on the road. Dallas had an overall online basketball betting record of 35-23 straight up and 27-31 against the NBA betting lines.
The Mavericks were 16-13 against the spread on the road and were a losing proposition as an online basketball betting dog with a mark of 8-10 against the spread. Dallas was a solid “under” team on the road this season with a mark of 11-18 under the total away from home.
Dallas was a top ten offensive team and ranked 14th on defense. Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks in scoring with an average of 24.6 points per game. Jason Kidd was a better quarterback than the Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo as he had 8.2 assists per game.
The New Orleans Hornets have had their share of online basketball betting problems lately as from January 30 through February 27 they went on a rough NBA betting stretch in which they went 4-11 against the NBA betting lines.
A good reason for the Hornets lack of online basketball betting value was their excellent start to the season, which caught a lot of public attention their way, driving up their prices in the process. Beyond that the Hornets online basketball betting opponents were no longer taking them lightly and came at them hard with a better effort.
New Orleans had an online basketball betting record of 13-16-1 at home. On January 14 the Hornets scored an online basketball betting win at Dallas 104-97 as 4.5-point chalks.
