Why should you bet on the Mavericks?

The Mavericks are 2-10 in their last 12 games. They aren’t playing defense. Dirk and Deron are looking old and gimpy (yes, they did revive for a mighty performance against Portland last weekend. But then they lost three in a row). Chandler Parsons is out for the season. So now it’s time to look at the youth movement in Justin Anderson and Dwight Powell. The Mavericks are doing their best to fall out of the playoff race, so coach Rick Carlisle put these two into the lineup (at small forward and center) to start their game against Denver. The athleticism and the energy that they showed revitalized the team, while Dirk only went 4 for 17 (10 points). If these two can keep that momentum going, the team should be able to knock off the Knicks at home.

Why should you put your money on New York?

As poorly as the Mavericks have been playing, this is a Knicks team that lost to New Orleans — and New Orleans did not have Anthony Davis dominating the middle. Jrue Holiday did come back from a toe injury and posted 10 points in the fourth period (22 total), keying a 9-0 run in the final minutes. However, Kristaps Porzingis played a solid game in the middle, blocking two would-be dunks. When he and Howard are on, the offense is tough to beat. The problem is that they have not been on much lately at all, and the team’s win-loss totals are showing it. I wouldn’t pick the Knicks unless you could get a line of at least six.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I’m picking the Mavericks to make it two wins in a row and beat the Knicks. I’m predicting a final score of Dallas 108, New York 99.
