NBA Betting Online: The league’s brightest stars will be on display for an old fashioned East versus West showdown when the Dallas Mavericks try to take down the NBA lines and the Miami Heat on Saturday, November 27th. Tip off from the American Airlines Center is scheduled for 8:30 ET with KTXA handling the regional television broadcast.
Entering a Friday night contest with the NBA lines and the Spurs in San Antonio, the Dallas Mavericks are riding a three game winning streak, and have built a respectable record thus far on the season, at 10-4. After a win in Atlanta last Saturday, the Mavs posted wins in back to back nights, first against the Pistons and most recently, taking down Oklahoma City on the road, 111-103 on Wednesday night. Dirk Nowitzki scored 34 points and teamed with point guard, Jason Terry to score 10 straight points in a 57 second span midway through the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach and seal the victory for the Mavericks. “What always helps in this league is making big shots, and we got hot at the right time,” Nowitzki said. Tyson Chandler, who was sent to Dallas in an off season trade from Charlotte, posted season highs in points and rebounds, dropping 17 on the Thunder while pulling down 18 boards. Caron Butler added 15 points and Kidd had eight points and 12 assists to help the Mavs improve to 5-1 on the road.
Along with its 10-4 record in the standings, the Dallas Mavericks own a 7-5-2 record against the NBA lines this season, with the ‘under’ playing to a 9-5 mark. In Dallas’ last 21 contests overall, the ‘under’ has played 15-5-1.
What’s going on with the Miami Heat? All of the buzz surrounding Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh, yet as the Heat take on the 76ers on Friday night, they’ll do so, looking to snap a three game losing streak; yes, you read correctly, the Heat have lost three in a row. On Wednesday, the Heat fell 104-95 to Dwight Howard and the Magic in Orlando, as James scored 25 points, Bosh finished with 21 and Wade dropped 18 for Miami in the loss. “If we had the answer right now, we wouldn’t be sitting at one game over .500,” James said of his Heat’s 8-7 start. “We’re a few games out of first. We’re a few games out of eighth.” Now, thanks in large part to Lakers head coach, Phil Jackson, speculation has begun as to whether Miami head coach, Erik Spoelstra will be relieved of his duties of manning the Heat’s roster, and making matters worse, the Heat are battling a host of injuries.
Miami has even struggled against the NBA lines this season, posting a 5-10 record ATS to date; the O/U matches the Heat’s record in the standings at 8-7. The Heat are winless against the numbers in their last four games overall, entering Friday’s match up with Philadelphia.
