Bet on basketball action on Thursday is highlighted by a game on TNT television between the defending champion Boston Celtics and the Dallas Mavericks.
Basketball betting scheduling information shows that this is the last game before the All-Star break for both teams.
Bet on basketball information tells us that the Celtics are in the midst of a 6-game road trip and in the second half of a back-to-back as they had to play in New Orleans last night. Bet on basketball stats indicate that the Celtics have won the last three games against Dallas after losing the previous seven. Last month in Boston the Celtics routed the Mavericks 124-100 as basketball betting results indicate. Bet on basketball results show that the Celtics won last season in Dallas 94-90 as 3.5 point basketball betting favorites. Going back too far is counterproductive with Boston considering they are a much different team now than they were a couple of years ago when they didn’t have Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.
Boston is laying points versus the bet on basketball pointspread on a nightly basis both at home and on the road. They are right around the .500 mark versus the basketball odds on the road this season. Their defense has been 2nd in the NBA for most of the season as bet on basketball numbers show while their offense is in the Top 10. Paul Pierce has led the team in scoring this season as bet on basketball stats indicate.
Dallas has almost opposite bet on basketball pointspread numbers as Boston. The Mavericks are rotten at home against the basketball odds but pretty good on the road. Dirk Nowitzki has led the team in scoring again this season as bet on basketball statistics register. The Mavericks are just outside the Top 10 on offense as bet on basketball stats indicate and in the middle of the pack on defense.
Two of the last three games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total including last year’s meeting in Dallas.
