NBA Betting Total:
The Mavericks look bound for the playoffs here in 2021 and they will look to solidify that position when they head out on the road for this matchup against the struggling Houston Rockets.
The Mavericks were given a big boost in their last game, as they were bale to beat the Utah Jazz quite convincingly which should give this team the belief that they can basically beat anyone this year.
One problem for the Mavericks, though, is that Kristaps Porzingis just cannot stay healthy, as he is out with another injury this time to his wrist and he does not have a solid timetable for a return at this point.
Luka Doncic has been playing better as of late getting his average points per game pushing almost towards 30 to go along with all of the peripheral stats he also provides, but you do feel like it might be just a little bit too much for one guy to go out there and win a championship.
It does look like that is what he will have to do if this team is going to compete, as Prozingis’ status is in the air and the rest of this roster is made up of a lot of ”decent” players.
The Rockets have lost their last 5 games straight and it really is no wonder when you dive into their stats, as they rank in the bottom third in nearly every important category.
The biggest worry the Rockets have in this game is the defense which ranks 23rd overall and although I am not a huge fan of the Mavericks as a team outside of the ”big 2” they do no doubt have some guys who can get hot from beyond the arc if you are not getting out to contest.
The Houston Rockets have not been total pushovers though, as they lost to the Suns last time out by only 3 points in an absolute shootout which they very easily could have won, so it is not like they present an easy win for the Mavs either.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
The Mavericks really like to push the pace and at this point the Houston Rockets are perfectly willing to oblige with a total shootout type of game which is exactly what I think we will get here. We saw in that last game from Houston that they definitely can score putting up 130 points last time out against the Suns, so I can see them doing their part on the scoreboard in order to help get this total over.
The Mavericks will look to take plenty of 3’s and I can also see Luka having an awesome game here, as he looks to win the game, but also stat pad a bit here against much lower competition.
