The Dallas Mavericks had a fantastic regular season a year ago and then choked in their first round playoff series against Golden State.
The loss against Golden State was one of the biggest in NBA Basketball betting odds history. MVP Dirk Nowitzki has officially gotten the reputation of a player that can’t deliver in the playoffs as fans of NBA odds are well aware. The Mavericks already had the labels of chokers after blowing a 2-0 series lead in the 2006 NBA Finals to Miami but last year’s first round loss to Golden State may have set the Mavericks back even further.
Fans looking at NBA odds will see that the Mavericks did not panic in the off-season and make a lot of changes. Nowitzki is back and will have another great year in the regular season. Fans of NBA odds know that all of that is meaningless though unless he delivers in the playoffs, something he has yet to do.
If you are looking at NBA odds you should know that Dallas has more than just Nowitki. Fans of NBA basketball betting odds know that Josh Howard is a superstar in the making at forward while Jason Terry is an excellent veteran guard. Fans of NBA odds see that Erick Dampier is an enigma in the middle while Devin Harris has potential at the point. Fans considering NBA odds should know that the team lost Austin Croshere and Anthony Johnson in the off-season and those losses may hurt. The Mavericks did get Eddie Jones in the off-season and draft picks Nick Fazekas and Reyshawn Terry could end up being steals and making an impact in NBA odds.
The Mavericks probably won’t win 67 games during the regular season like a year ago but they still may get the top seed in the West for fans of NBA odds. In reality though it is meaningless because this team will be judged by what they do in the playoffs, and nothing else matters in the eyes of NBA basketball betting odds fans. The Mavericks are still led by Dirk Nowitzki and that is a good news/bad news scenario for fans of NBA odds. It is good news because they will have a great regular season. It is bad news because Nowitzki can’t play in the playoffs as fans of NBA odds know. The Mavericks are going to be highly priced versus the NBA odds most of the season and there will be some spots to go against them. Once the playoffs begin the Mavs are almost an automatic go-against in NBA odds.
