Expert Betting Tips
Indiana coach Rick Carlisle is very familiar with the Dallas Mavericks, but even his knowledge and tactical savvy will not help Indiana Pacers in this upcoming game. The Mavericks look more solid in almost every aspect of the game. In addition, Kidd's team is motivated to take revenge for the loss to Indiana in the first faceoff this season. As the main bet, I suggest considering the total points of the hosts, Indiana has troubles with the defence. Also, we can bet on Dallas' handicap. We do not know if the Pacers' leading players Sabonis and Brogdon will play. Even if they do, will they play their best? The apparent favourite is Dallas.
