The Mavericks are small basketball betting favorites in this matchup. Basketball betting trends support Utah in this game. The Jazz have won 6 of the last 10 games against Dallas and as far as basketball odds go, they are 7-3.
It has been a home dominated series as the Mavericks have won three of the last four games at home against Utah but they are just 2-2 versus the basketball odds. NBA betting numbers show that the teams have met three times already this season with the home team winning each time. The Jazz won 115-87 and 97-88 in Utah while the Mavericks won 115-108 in Dallas as NBA betting results indicate.
Wednesday’s game is the second game of a three-game road trip for the Jazz as basketball betting scheduling info shows. Utah has a losing record on the road this season versus the basketball betting number but they are more competitive on the road this season than in the past. Utah can score points and their defense is pretty solid. Overall that is a recipe for winning games on the road in basketball betting and staying close. Utah is still below .500 on the road in terms of NBA betting but they are not the automatic go-against on the road as they have been in past seasons.
Dallas has a losing record at home this season versus the NBA betting number. The Mavericks have a good offense but their defense is just average as basketball betting stats indicate. And too many times the Mavericks just lose focus and that is a huge problem when laying points in basketball betting. Dallas still has Dirk Nowitzki but overall they are a team that seems to be missing talent as the playoffs approach.
The over/under basketball betting total is 5-5 in the last ten games between the two teams. At Dallas though, three of the last four meetings have gone over the basketball betting total. That could easily happen again on Wednesday since Utah has one of the best offenses in the NBA.
