Mavericks Knicks Betting – Mavericks And Knicks Clash In An Appealing Encounter

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/6/2014 1:11:59 AM

The Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks have both had lousy journeys through the month of January. They’ll try to start February on the right foot when they meet Wednesday night.

Why To Bet On Dallas

The sports betting cognoscenti have to be calibrating and re-calibrating the effect Dirk Nowitzki’s return will have on the Dallas Mavericks. The case to be made in favor of Dallas is that the Mavs have won four straight games (as of January 30) after losing seven of eight in Nowitzki’s absence. Dallas was flourishing before its superstar got hurt; coach Rick Carlisle’s team was outpacing the Los Angeles Lakers and was giving the Western Conference-leading San Antonio Spurs a good run for their money. Dallas still lacks an imposing center in the low post, but the Mavs had become a very effective regular-season team in November and December. They meshed with a fullness and consistency that had been lacking in prior seasons. Then Nowitzki’s ill-timed injury gummed up the works for three solid weeks. Now that Nowitzki is back in the saddle, the wins are piling up again. Since Dallas is playing a team coached by Mike D’Antoni, the former boss of the Phoenix Suns, one shouldn’t expect too much defense to be played inside Madison Square Garden. Dallas can run its halfcourt sets with not too much resistance, and Nowitzki should be able to get good looks at the basket on demand, without being overly pushed or harassed. The ingredients exist for a Maverick win on the road.

Why To Bet On New York

Super Bowl betting and online betting experts agree that Aaron Rodgers has had a disproportionately strong affect on the Green Bay Packers and on the odds for Super Bowl XLV. Similarly, it’s impossible to avoid the conclusion that forward Amare Stoudemire has wielded an enormous amount of influence on the development of the New York Knicks in this 2010-2011 season. Stoudemire came from Phoenix as a man whose level of impact was very much in open question. Stoudemire has been known for dogging it at the defensive end and being a one-way player. He failed to produce tough rebounds in Phoenix’s six-game loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2010 Western Conference Finals. The Knicks were expected to be better this season with Stoudemire, but the question was, “How much better?” The results have been impressive.

The Knicks, despite losing six straight in January, have become a decidedly better and more competitive team. Even in the abysmal Eastern Conference – where a losing record can still produce the No. 8 playoff seed – the Knicks missed the playoffs by several games the past few seasons. Now, they’re 25-22 as the NBA All-Star break approaches. Stoudemire is averaging 26 points and nine rebounds per game, and that’s the level of production D’Antoni and General Manager Donnie Walsh envisioned when the Knick franchise pulled the trigger on the electric low-post scorer with the reliable mid-range jumper. If Stoudemire plays to his capabilities, Dallas’ defense will be stretched thin and left vulnerable. That will pave the way for a New York victory.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Mavericks have been winning games of late, but it’s important to realize that those four consecutive wins have come against bad teams: New Jersey, the Los Angeles Clippers, and Houston (plus a win against a decent Atlanta squad). Dallas plays Washington on Monday night, and a win there wouldn’t exactly make a resounding statement. New York has more chops than most of Dallas’ recent opponents. That factor plays to the Knicks’ advantage and will carry New York to victory.
