Mavericks vs 76ers Predictions
April 11, 2021
Mavericks vs 76ers is an inter-Conference tilt between two teams that have differing hopes closing out the 2021 season. The Mavericks should be locked into the back end of the playoff race in the Western Conference. They are comfortably inside the cut line for playoff teams. They will however, likely have t play in the play-in portion of the playoffs. Even with that level of comfortability in the standings, they are highly unlikely to have home court advantage in any series.
The 76ers on the other hand are in a tie for the top team in the Eastern Conference and. Their goal will be protecting their top seed and home court advantage leading up to the NBA Finals. It would be a shock of sorts if they finished any worse than the two seed in the East.
Mavericks vs 76ers has only been played over six dozen time times, with the split being completely even. The recent seasons paint a quite similar picture. These teams have played each as evenly recently as they have historically.
History does not point to either side. With no historical advantage, we will look to this season. The 76ers are one of the league’s best teams, and are a better team than the Mavericks.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Dallas Mavericks Betting Pick
Monday Night at 7:30PM EST at the American Airlines Center.
Why bet the 76ers?
✅ Mavs home court disadvantage. The 2021 Mavericks are a rare and weird team that finds more success on the road. The raw wins and losses paint an accurate picture supporting this. They are 16-12 on the road while they are 13-11 at home. Statisitcal data supports this at a higher level than the raw wins and losses. The Mavs are one of the least eefficient defensive teams in the league at home. Additionally, despite a winning record, they carry a minus points differential per game. This matchup will be decided by the defensive prowess of either side. The Mavericks are the team that wilts in that department.
✅ 76ers improved road team. The 76ers have made massive strides since last season in road output. In 2020 they were an absolutely elite home team but a terrible road team. They have closed that gap in a huge way this season. Whie they are still an elite home team, they are a winning team on the road as well. They are top ten this season with a +3.4 point differential per road game.
Where they have improved this season to make it happen is on the defensive end of the floor. They are the third most efficient defensive road unit in the league. They also allow the fourth fewest points per road game despite being middle of the pack in pace.
Expect to see a repeat of the first matchup of the season. The 76ers won that game by 14 points.

For a hypothetical example, we will use a total set at 219 points. Over/Under wagers on this 76ers vs Mavericks contest would be betting over or under 219 combined points for the two teams.
There are many factors you shoudl consider when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency.
Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ers Moneyline Predictions
Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play in terms of the wager.
Instead of laying or taking the points on the point spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game with our best Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ers Money Line predictions, a Money Line wager is worth considering. This will allow you to avoid the point spread and simply pick a winner.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our 76ers -2.5 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread bet, you can bet the 76ers to simply win outright while laying odds. You can bet the Mavericks to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -135 on the 76ers and expect to get about +115 on the Mavericks.
With the all-time series being played to no edge for either side, history cannot help as a determining factor on a money line wager in this instance. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The current season’s trends siding with the Philadelphia 76ers is a helpful indicator and is more important in terms of a betting selection.
