Mavericks vs Warriors NBA Hoops Betting Guide

Posted by Henry Watkins on Thursday,March 17, 2016 11:21, EST in

There are a number of betting services that will gladly sell you their lock game of the week for a nominal fee, but I have to say that I have never been a big fan of that sort of confidence. There are far too many variables that go into a match-up to make it impossible for a team to lose. Yes, if you had bet the Golden State Warriors to win every single game they had played so far this season, you would have a tidy little profit, but what I am saying is that past results are no guarantee of future success. Past results are what we have to go on when handicapping games, though, and it is usually the Warriors number that comes up when we run those. They will try to continue their miraculous season when they head into Dallas on Friday night, but past results suggest this one may not be a lock.

Why bet on the Golden State Warriors

I’m not going to lie, it does get a little dull writing about the Golden State Warriors (61-6), simply because I am beginning to run out of things to say. It has reached the point where you almost wish they would lose back to back games so that some spice could be added to their story. That seems as though it is not going to happen at this point, especially since they haven’t lost back to back game all year. The Warriors are a total phenomenon, but you do wonder if the pressure of going after the best regular season record ever will eventually get to them. The mistake they cannot afford to make in this game is overlooking the Mavericks in favor of the next game, which just happens to be against the San Antonio Spurs. The Warriors are averaging 115.7 PPG, and are giving up 104.3 PPG.

Why bet on the Dallas Mavericks

Most team who face the Warriors enter the game with very little to be confident about, but the Dallas Mavericks (34-34) may have a little swagger coming into this one. They are one of the few teams who have knocked off the Warriors this season, and they did so in this very building. The bad news is that Dallas are not playing very well right now, and are just 4-6 in their last 10 games. They do have a winning record at home, though, and may just benefit from a Warrior team that might just be a little too focused on the game after this one. Dallas are averaging 102.4 PPG, and are giving up 102.7 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Just as I don’t expect to see the Warriors lose back to back games this season, I also don’t see them losing to the same team twice. I think this will be a fairly comfortable win for Golden State.
