Basketball betting on Thursday includes a TNT televised matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Hornets.
It could be a tough NBA betting spot for the Mavericks as they had to play at home last night against San Antonio. Let’s look at some basketball betting numbers for the Mavericks and the Hornets.
Basketball betting trends favor the Hornets in this game. New Orleans has won 7 of the last 10 games against Dallas and they are 6-4 against the basketball odds. The Hornets have won the last five games at home against the Mavericks and they are 4-1 against the basketball odds. The teams met earlier this season in Dallas and the Hornets came away with a 104-97 win as basketball betting results show.
Dallas has actually been a better team against the NBA betting pointspread on the road than at home. The Mavericks are above .500 on the road this season versus the NBA betting number. Dirk Nowitzki continues to lead the team in scoring as basketball betting stats show. The problem for Dallas is that they don’t have enough scoring behind Nowitzki to cover the basketball betting line.
New Orleans hasn’t been anything special this season at home against the basketball betting pointspread. The Hornets just don’t score enough points to cover the basketball betting number even though they win many of their games. Chris Paul is having another excellent season but New Orleans has not given him enough support. The Hornets are definitely similar to Dallas in the respect that they live and die with Paul while Dallas lives and dies with Nowitzki.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting total. At New Orleans, the over is 4-1 against the basketball betting number in the last five meetings between the two teams.
