Dallas Mavericks @ Atlanta Hawks – Saturday October 20, 2012 7:00PM EST

The Dallas Mavericks are only two years removed from an NBA title, but it seems like an eternity when all of the personnel changes are taken into consideration. As fans in Dallas get ready to start betting on the NBA regular season, there are a couple of issues that have raised some concern for fans. Superstar Dirk Nowitzki is still sitting out preseason games because of his bad knee. The team claims that sitting out Nowitzki during the preseason is just a precaution, but the limp that Nowitzki is walking with would seem to counteract that statement. The knee keeps swelling on Nowitzki and the superstar himself has conceded that it may need surgery. He is going to see if he can play the season with the bum knee or if he needs to bow out for the 2012-2013 campaign to have the knee repaired.

On the Atlanta side of the ball, the online sports betting crowd is wondering how the Hawks will get along without Joe Johnson. Johnson was traded to the Brooklyn Nets in the offseason for a series of players with expiring contracts and shaky futures. Now the fans in Atlanta get to see, first hand, what the team got in return for giving up its best player. The Hawks will get a good look at Jordan Farmar and Jordan Williams to see if the team is interested in picking up the contracts on these two players and moving forward with them. The Hawks may have to take a couple of steps back before it sees a real return on this trade, but it may all be worth it in the end.

Why the Mavericks Will Win

The Mavs will get a chance to see a lot of young players this preseason thanks to the injury to Nowitzki and the leave of absence given to Delonte West. While fans in Dallas should be concerned about the future of their team without Nowitzki and West, there is plenty of young talent in the Mavericks’ system that can step in and create an exciting team. The only problem the online sportsbook experts see is that exciting does not necessarily mean playoffs.

Why the Hawks Will Win

The starting roster for the Atlanta Hawks is pretty wide open and there are plenty of players competing for jobs. This will be a young team that will add some speed to make up for the savvy lost when Johnson was traded. This should be an interesting year for the Atlanta Hawks.

The Bottom Line

It is always hard to gauge NBA preseason games, and this game will be especially hard to gauge. The Mavericks have looked impressive so far in this young preseason, but that does not always translate into the regular season.

Pick: Dallas Mavericks
