NBA betting on Friday includes an excellent matchup on ESPN as the Detroit Pistons host the Dallas Mavericks.
Both teams are expected to be in the playoff mix this season so this should be an exciting NBA betting game on Friday. Basketball betting odds have the Pistons as small home favorites.
NBA betting scheduling information tells us that the Mavericks are playing the third game of a four-game road trip tonight. The Mavericks have split the last ten meetings against Detroit straight up as NBA betting stats have it. The Pistons have owned this series against the spread recently though, going 7-3 against the NBA odds in the last 10 meetings against Dallas. Detroit has won three of the past five home games against Dallas as NBA betting number tell us.
The last four games between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting total. Three of the past five games at Detroit have gone under the basketball betting total. That could happen again considering Detroit is playing solid defense this season, ranking in the Top 5 as NBA betting stats determine. NBA betting experts believed that the Pistons would be potent offensively with Allen Iverson but that has not really been the case as the chemistry looks messed up.
Detroit has been a very poor value in NBA betting at home this season while the Mavericks have been a solid play on the road. Dallas is still led by Dirk Nowitzki in scoring as NBA betting numbers reflect. NBA betting stats show that the problem for the Mavericks is that oftentimes he doesn’t get a lot of help. Jason Terry can provide scoring as basketball betting stats indicate, but other than that the Mavericks don’t have a lot of options. That is especially true with Josh Howard being injured.
Gamblers have an interesting NBA betting choice in this game. Do they go with the Mavericks plus the NBA odds or do they count on Detroit to pull out a close home win?
