NBA Preview: Clippers vs. Mavericks (Jan. 6)

Clippers vs Mavericks NBA Sports Betting

The Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks battle it out in Big D and sports betting fans couldn’t be happier. One of the best teams to make an online NBA wager against this season has been the Los Angeles Clippers. I really thought they were building a team in Clipper Land but letting Elton Brand get away and then Corey Maggette while only receiving Baron Davis in return, in a way, isn’t my idea of building a team. Sure, they got Marcus Camby but he’s over the hill – – no offense Marcus. In any case, the Clippers’ 15 and 18 overall record against the BetUS online wagering spread and straight-up record of 8 and 25 says it all. But they do have a 10 and 6 record against the spread on the road.

The Dallas Mavericks are playing like a veteran team. They have a terrific straight-up record of 20 and 13. Dirk Nowitzki is averaging 26 points a game and Jason Kidd is averaging 8 assists a game. But Dallas is almost a carbon copy of the Los Angeles Clippers when it comes to the BetUS Sportsbook wagering spread. The Mavs are only 15 and 18 overall and 4 and 12 against the spread at home.

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook NBA betting odds for this game:

Los Angeles Clippers + 13 – 110 O 182 ½ – 110
Dallas Mavericks – 13 – 110 U 182 ½ – 110

Here are a few online betting trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game:

The Los Angeles Clippers are 6 and 2 against the spread in their last 8 games on the road.
The Over is 4 and 1 in the Los Angeles Clippers last 5 games on the road.
The Dallas Mavericks are 7 and 19 against the spread in their last 26 games at home.
The Under is 4 and 1 in the Dallas Mavericks last 5 games overall.

Is there a reason to bet the Mavericks in this game at – 13 against the spread? I’m not sure that there is.

On paper, the Mavericks are a much better team than the Clippers, but for some reason the Mavs are terrible against the BetUS online basketball betting spread at home while the Clippers are excellent against the spread on the road.

To me, that’s the determining factor in this game. I can’t lay 13 points on a team that has a 4 and 12 against the spread record at home. I just can’t do it.

Clippers vs. Mavs Prediction:

I’ll be making an online bet on the Los Angeles Clippers to beat the 13 point online betting spread.
