Basketball betting odds have the Los Angeles Lakers favored on the road at Sacramento on Tuesday night.
The Mavericks have won the last 11 games against Minnesota overall and they are 6-5 against the basketball betting pointspread.
Bet on basketball scheduling information tells us that the Mavericks are in a back-to-back situation having played last night at New Orleans. Dallas finishes the regular season at home against Houston on Wednesday while the Timberwolves finish at home versus Sacramento.
The Mavericks have won the last six home games against Minnesota but they are just 1-5 against the basketball odds. The teams have met three times this season and the Mavericks have won each time. They are also 2-1 against the basketball odds. The one matchup in Dallas was a 107-100 win for the Mavericks but they did not cover the 13.5 point basketball betting number. That result is a perfect example of the season for Dallas. They win games outright at home but they don’t cover the bet on basketball number. The Mavericks are below .500 versus the basketball betting pointspread at home this season.
Minnesota has been one of the worst teams in the NBA at home versus the bet on basketball number but on the road they have been decent. The Timberwolves are almost always getting big points on the road and more often than not they have been able to cover the basketball betting number. They may be able to stay with the Mavericks in this one if bet on basketball history holds true.
Dallas has been led this season by Dirk Nowitzki who is averaging over 25 points per game as bet on basketball stats show. This could be an important game for the Mavericks as they are battling to stay out of the 8th spot in the Western Conference. If Dallas could move up to 7th they would avoid meeting the Lakers in the first round of the playoffs. Dallas has an offense that is right around the Top 10 in the league as bet on basketball stats indicate but their defense is just average.
The under is 13-4 in the last 17 meetings between the two teams as bet on basketball stats show. At Dallas, three of the last five have gone under the bet on basketball odds. The Mavericks have been an over team at home this season and an under team on the road versus the bet on basketball total.
