Mavericks Look to Move Up in the West

April 05, 2012

The Western Conference playoff race is heating up and the Dallas Mavericks are in the thick of the race. On April 6, they host the Portland Trailblazers. Dallas has struggled of late and has seen their record drop to 31-24 and they have dropped to the sixth spot in the playoff race in the Western Conference. The Mavericks are winners of six of 10, but trail the fourth place Clippers by 1 ½ games.

Portland will have a hard time qualifying for the postseason. The Trailblazers are currently in 11th place and are 3 ½ games behind the eighth place Denver Nuggets. Portland has a record of 26-29 and is 5-5 SU over their last 10 games played.

Both teams have players out injured. Portland has two players out indefinitely, while Dallas has starting guard Jason Kidd day to day with a groin injury. Dallas holds the head to head advantage 6-4 SU and 6-3-1 ATS over the last 10 games the two teams have played against one another. This season they have met just once. That game was also played in Dallas and the Mavericks won 97-94 but failed to cover a 4-point favorite spread. The total paid out to the OVER bettors as the line was 187 but the two teams combined for 191.

Portland is 3-2 SU over their last five games, while the Mavericks are also 3-2 SU. In the stretch, Dallas has lost to the Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat, but defeated a tough Orlando team. Portland’s victories have been against Minnesota and New Orleans.

The game should be high scoring and Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki should have his way with the Portland defense. Take the Mavericks less the points and the total to be OVER.
