NBA Thursday 11/14 Betting Play
14 November 2019
Dallas Mavericks at New York Knicks
Opening Line: Mavericks -6.5 and 216.5
Current Line: Mavericks -7 and 216.5
The Knicks are on the short list for the league’s worst team as we approach the one month mark of the NBA season. They are 2-9 and have lost six of their last seven, with all but one of those losses being by at least 12 points. The lone win they had in that span was actually in a dud performance from the Mavericks in Dallas and you can bet they will be eager to get that one back. The Knicks are dead last in offensive efficiency, confirming what the eye test posited: The Knicks are anemic on offense and will be outscored (as opposed to outplayed) by most teams even on nights they’re defensively sound. The Mavericks are on the polar opposite end of the spectrum in offensive efficiency, first in the league and this will be one they get back after the ugly loss and additionally Kristaps Porzingis’ first win against his old team. Take the Mavs -7.
Betting Pick: Mavericks -7
