Betting On Mavericks Heat – Heat Look To Get Back On Track With Big Win Over Visiting Mavericks Thursday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/10/2014 8:09:10 PM

The Miami Heat were cooled off Sunday night in a 103-83 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game that many considered to be a preview of this year’s NBA finals. Miami basketball fans are certainly hoping that it was nothing more than a tough regular season road game in which their team just didn’t get up the same way as their much hungrier opponent did, and expect better when the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks come to town this week. The Mavericks have had their own troubles this season but are still in the thick of the Western conference playoff picture as we head in to the final stretch.

NBA Sportsbook Odds: Miami Heat

Armed with the best home record in the NBA, the Heat are a much tougher test when they’re playing in front of their fans, much in the same way as Dallas. The Mavericks entered this week with a 10-14 record as the visiting team, and the fact that they lost their season opener against this same Miami team back in December solidifies them as sports betting underdogs for this contest.

Consistency has been the biggest problem for the Mavericks this season, and with so much change coming off that championship run, to some degree that is to be expected. Dallas lost starting center Tyson Chandler in the offseason, as well as a young guard in JJ Barea that is good enough to start for most teams in the NBA, and that has been even more pressure on players like Jason Kidd and Shawn Marion. Dirk Nowitzki has had a rollercoaster season with injuries really limiting his productivity, but Dallas did not address its depth at the NBA trade deadline as they continue to hold back for a shot at Dwight Howard and Deron Williams.

If there was one game that the Heat were going to get up for this season it was for their season opener against Dallas, which they won by 11 on the road, and this game should be no different. Lebron James and company understand that this is the team that spoiled their championship dreams a year ago, and to now let them come in to their building and have their way again would be unacceptable. Dwayne Wade is finally starting to get healthy, and with both James and Chris Bosh jacked up and ready to go, Miami should be able to get the job done in a big way.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The betting line for this game is only 2.5, but given the way that the Heat played in the opener, and the way that they have played at home all season, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they win this game by more than five. Miami still has a lot to prove to both its fans and the rest of the world, and a visiting Mavericks’ team will remind them of that.
