Knicks Mavericks Betting – Linsanity Descends On Dallas For Rematch Against Defending Champions

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/10/2014 4:30:48 AM

It would be impossible to count on one hand all of the factors that have changed the overall outlook in the NBA this season, with everything from the pace of the schedule to the overall cluster of games per week contributing to how things have gone so far. Oh, and then there is Linsanity. The 23-year old guard Jeremy Lin has helped breath life in to a New York Knicks’ franchise that struggled mightily out of the gate before he was given a significant chance, so much so that they are actually the sports betting favorites heading in to a contest against the defending NBA champions Dallas Mavericks this Tuesday.

The thought of the Knicks being road favorites against the defending NBA champion Mavericks would have seemed ludicrous at the beginning of the year, but after watching Lin drop 28 on Dallas in a 104-97 home win back in February, there is no reason to doubt that they can get the job done. The Mavericks are a team that has been slowed down by their age in a condensed season, while New York has the young leg to exploit that.

The Harvard sensation was an absolute monster the first time these teams met, dropping 28 on a Mavericks’ team that saw its six-game winning streak come to an end in that meeting. JR Smith and Steve Novak combined for 29 points off the bench in that win, with a total of six Knicks’ players registering at least 11 points in the win. Adding to New York’s case is that Carmelo Anthony wasn’t available for that game, but then again the team has still struggled around the .500 mark since he returned to the lineup.

The fact that the Mavericks lost to the Knicks despite a game-high 34 points from Nowitzki is concerning, but not as concerning as the fact that they could be without their superstar forward for the second contest between these teams. Nowitzki has been dealing with back spasms and could wind up resting this game, putting even more pressure on veterans like Jason Kidd and Vince Carter to produce on offense. One of Dallas’ biggest problems has been the lack of a top center after losing Tyson Chandler to the Knicks in the offseason, and Tuesday night could bring another tough reminder of all that they gave up when they lost him.

Knicks Mavericks Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While the Knicks are still trying to figure things out, so is Dallas, with the major difference being that the Mavericks are also struggling to stay healthy. New York is a younger team that will push the tempo against Dallas the way that they did at home in the first meeting, and unless the Mavericks are at full strength it is hard to believe that they will be able to keep pace in this sports bet contest.
