It is only the second game of the season for both teams as Dallas played Thursday at Boston while Minnesota was home Wednesday against Sacramento. Online basketball betting could be interesting on this contest considering the teams have split the last 10 meetings against the NBA betting pointspread.
NBA betting stats show that although the teams have split the last 10 meetings against the pointspread, Dallas has won 9 of the last 10 games straight up. That will be the consideration for gamblers in this game. Is it better to take the Mavericks and lay the points, hoping they cover, or do you go with Minnesota knowing they have lost 9 of the last 10 straight up against Dallas?
Online basketball betting information shows that Minnesota does have some new faces this year. They have guard Mike Miller, rookie forward
Kevin Love, center Jason Collins, forward Brian Cardinal, forward Rodney
Carney and center Calvin Booth according to NBA betting information. NBA betting stats show that Minnesota was 15-26 at the Target Center last year. It was the fewest home wins since Minnesota went 13-28 at home in 1994-95 according to online basketball betting numbers. The Wolves have had all kinds of trouble at home against the Mavericks lately according to NBA betting stats. They are 0-4 both straight up and against the NBA betting number in the last four meetings against Dallas at the Target Center.
Looking at the NBA betting total we see that the under has been a very profitable bet when these two teams meet. 7 of the last 10 games have gone under the online basketball betting number. At Minnesota, four of the last five meetings have gone under the NBA betting number including both games last year.
NBA betting action will probably be on Dallas in this game simply because they have the history against Minnesota and because they have more talent. Laying points on the road though is never easy in NBA betting which is one reason this game might be interesting.
