Spurs Mavericks Betting Predictions – Spurs Try To Roll Along Against Weakened Mavericks

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/23/2013 6:14:39 PM

The San Antonio Spurs are still chugging forward, losing little of the mustard on their fastball. If there is a short list of NBA title contenders, the Spurs are definitely on it.

San Antonio Spurs @ Dallas Mavericks – Friday, January 25
Sport betting line: No line

Why San Antonio Will Win

No bet on this game should ignore the centrality and primacy of the fact that the Spurs are simply taking care of business, left and right and at home or on the road. The Spurs handled an Eastern road swing with typical poise and composure, digging out of a seven-point deficit with four minutes left in regulation to overtake the Philadelphia 76ers two nights after winning in Atlanta against the Hawks. San Antonio is a team that adjusts and finds solutions.

The Spurs are without guard Manu Ginobili for the time being, but they're still finding ways to win in difficult situations. Dallas, a longtime rival, is going to throw its best stuff at San Antonio on Friday, but the Spurs have shown so many times that they're likely to be up for the challenge. Moreover, within the contours of this matchup, consider the fact that the Spurs beat the Mavericks by 38 points and then 25 in two games played a week apart in late December.

San Antonio's halfcourt offense knows how to maneuver the ball and outflank the Mavericks' pressure. The Spurs feel very comfortable against Dallas' defense, and unless the Mavs can offer a change-up, San Antonio should prevail once again.

Why Dallas Will Win

Even mma betting experts know that it's weird when an NBA team gets four full days off in the latter half of January, but that's exactly what the Mavericks are gaining before this contest against the Spurs. Yes, one could say that the Mavs will be stripped of momentum after having won five of their past six games, the only loss coming in a strong performance at home against Oklahoma City (one that led to an overtime loss), but on the other hand, a rest could be exactly what the Mavericks need to remain on the winning track.

The grind of an NBA season catches up with teams that enjoy periods of prosperity, so Dallas could paradoxically benefit from this break in the middle of a winning patch. The Mavericks can redouble their efforts, especially at the defensive end of the floor, and do a better job of stopping dribble penetration to take away Tony Parker, the heart of the Spurs' offense. With Ginobili (as mentioned above) out of action, Dallas also gains a key edge in the chess match between coach Rick Carlisle and San Antonio bench boss Gregg Popovich.

A final note is that Dallas has finally played three whole weeks with star forward Dirk Nowitzki. He was rusty in the 111-86 loss to San Antonio on Dec. 30. He should be in top form in this game, and that will make the difference for Dallas.

Who Will Win

This is going to be a close game, but Dallas is a very different team from the one San Antonio crushed twice in late December. The rested Mavericks will play one of their best games of the year and win this contest.
