NBA Betting Odds – Dallas (14-8) at Toronto (12-10)
Our Sportsbooks: While both teams tonight have both been maddeningly inconsistent in the early going this season, at least the Toronto Raptors can say they were thrown out of synch by the loss of some of their best players, in all-star forward Chris Bosh, point guard T.J. Ford and second-year forward Andrea Bargnani.
The Dallas Mavericks, (9-13 ATS, 15-7 O/U) however, have been nearly as healthy as a horse all season, but are playing their most sporadic brand of basketball since head coach Avery Johnson took over for former mentor Don Nelson a couple of seasons ago.
Though they have won two consecutive games heading into this contest, including Tuesday’s 99-89 win over the New York Knicks, the Mavericks had dropped three of their preceding five games.
The Toronto Raptors, (13-8 ATS, 11-11 O/U) recently got good news with the returns of Chris Bosh, Andrea Bargnani and T.J. Ford but Ford, Toronto’s second-leading scorer, was promptly re-injured last night in the Raptors’ 100-88 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
The Mavericks finally got a powerful outing from Dirk Nowitzki against the lowly Knicks, scoring a season-high 36 points on 14-of-23 shooting. Dallas’ best player this season has been small forward Josh Howard who averages a team-leading 22.4 points per game and scored a career-high 47 points against the Utah Jazz in Dallas’ 125-117 win on Saturday.
Here is a look at tonight’s Key Trends, followed by my NBA Betting Free Picks:
Key Mavericks Trends
The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games.
The Mavericks are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games.
The Mavericks are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games playing on one days rest.
Key Raptors Trends
The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last four vs. NBA Southwest.
The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last six games when their starting five players combine for more than 160 minutes of the previous day.
The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games.
Key Totals Trends
The Over is 9-2 in Mavericks last eleven when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.
The Over is 8-2 in Mavericks last ten games as a favorite of 5.0-10.5.
The Under is 4-0 in Raptors last four home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
The Under is 6-1 in Raptors last seven home games.
Key Head-to-Head Trends
The Over is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings.
The Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
Analysis: Even though the Mavericks now have the look of a team in need of a trade following their consecutive postseason collapses, I like Dallas to win outright and cover the spread, particularly since Toronto will be without their floor leader, Ford.
Take the Mavericks to cruise tonight.
