Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Mavericks are quite a popular team to bet on thanks to constantly being a winning team. They don’t have the most eye-popping team on paper but they are usually well-managed and well-coached that they become a better team than the sum of their parts. They are usually favourites on the betting lines.
As a favourite on the money line, the Mavericks will be listed as a minus. Say they are a -325 that means you will have to pay $325 to win $100. But as an underdog, the Mavs will have a positive number like a +275. What that means is a $100 bet pays $275. Once you get the hang of how this works, you can try other betting options like the over/under or totals.
The over/under is betting on the total score between both teams for the game. An over/under of 201.5 for example means the total score between the two will amount to over 201.5 or under 201.5. Whether one team blows out the other team or wins by a point is irrelevant so long as the totals match your bet. Checking to see the offensive and defensive capabilities of both teams involved is a must before making this type of bet.
The Heat have the blessing of being able to easily attract players to the team mostly because of their winning history, cunning management and beautiful location. This has led the Heat to have consistent winning seasons where they are perennial playoff contenders. Even when there is shake up in the roster, the Heat find ways to stay competitive and in a shaky eastern conference that’s usually all it takes to win.
