Basketball Betting – New York Knicks at Dallas Mavericks

January 31st, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting on Thursday has the Dallas Mavericks favored at home against the New York Knicks. Bet on basketball scheduling information shows that this is the 2nd game of a four-game road trip for the Knicks while it is the first of a back-to-back for Dallas as they are at Phoenix tomorrow.  Let’s take a look at this matchup between the Knicks and Mavericks.

Basketball trends definitely favor Dallas in this game. The Mavericks have won 9 of the last 10 games between the two teams.  Dallas is 7-3 against the basketball odds in those games.  Basketball betting information demonstrates that the Mavericks have won the last eight meetings between the two teams in Dallas.  The Mavericks won at New York earlier this season by a score of 124-114 in overtime as bet on basketball results indicate.  Dirk Nowitzki poured in 39 points to lead the Mavericks as basketball stats register.  In that meeting it was Zach Randolph who led the Knicks but he is now in Golden State and Al Harrington usually leads the Knicks in scoring as bet on basketball numbers show.

Dallas has been very poor at home this season versus the basketball odds.  The Mavericks are still overrated at home and their against the spread basketball betting numbers at home are pathetic.  The Knicks on the other hand are okay on the road versus the basketball odds.  They oftentimes are getting big points and that should be the case in this basketball betting matchup.  New York doesn’t play much defense under head coach Mike D’Antoni but they have proven they can score and cover the basketball betting number.

The over/under basketball numbers show that in the last 10 meetings the total is 5-5.  At Dallas, the under is 3-2 in the last five meetings as basketball betting stats indicate.  Points could come in bunches in this meeting on Thursday considering Dallas has offensive potential and the Knicks play very little defense.
