According to the basketball betting schedule the Mavericks are playing the first of back-to-back games as they are home against Orlando on Friday. The Bulls are playing the fourth game of a five-game homestand according to the NBA betting schedule.
NBA betting history shows that the Mavericks have won 8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams. Dallas has not had quite as much success against the basketball betting pointspread though as they are just 5-5 in those games. Somewhat surprisingly, the Mavericks have had more success on the road against the Bulls in terms of NBA betting. The Mavericks are 4-1 straight up and 3-2 against the basketball betting number at Chicago in the last five games. The Mavericks have been the stronger team in recent seasons and have been favored in each of the last 10 meetings regardless of the locale. Dallas still has the stronger team this season but Chicago is making strides and the series may not be as one-sided in the future.
Gamblers looking at the NBA betting total should notice that the over is 5-4-1 in the last 10 games. At Chicago though, three of the last five games have stayed under the NBA betting number. Last year, the Mavericks won both games according to NBA betting stats. The Mavericks won at home 102-94 but didn’t cover the 10 point NBA betting number. Dallas also won at Chicago 103-98 but in this case they covered the three point basketball betting number.
