San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks.
Stadium: AT&T Center. (San Antonio).
Dallas have a back-to-back game. The first game ended badly for Jason Kidd’s team. At home, the Mavericks lost without a chance to Miami. In San Antonio against the Spurs, given the move and how effectively Gregg Popovich’s team usually plays at home, will Dallas also lose? Let’s pick a few bets at once.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
San Antonio’s tough calendar
Arguably no other team in the league has a tougher schedule than the Spurs at the start. It’s almost as if the guys who coordinated the schedule decided that Gregg Popovich is no longer interested in playing easy games. After their opening game against Orlando, San Antonio welcomed Denver, Milwaukee, and the Lakers at home and then played with Dallas, Milwaukee and Indiana away. The Spurs managed to clinch another game and beat Orlando by beating a weakened Milwaukee on the road.
Fortunately, San Antonio are in a gentle mode until mid-November. If a young team plans to clinch a wild-card round this season, and if there are no other options to make the playoffs, they should win to the max during this stretch. For then, it’s back to the Lakers, Clippers, etc.
Dallas have won a surprisingly large number of games
Jason Kidd’s team has won 4 games in 7 games, which could be considered a good start considering the coaching change in the offseason. It’s clear that Kidd and the Mavs still need to get used to each other. A closer look at the results, though, will show that Dallas’s start to the season can be characterized not just as bad but as hopeless. The fact is that all of the Mavs’ victories came against not the strongest of opponents and even in a hard-fought game. And Dallas lost to all teams, claiming the title of the content leader. They dropped -26 away to Atlanta, -31 away to Denver, and finally -15 at home to Miami. It’s unlikely that Luka Doncic and the company will be expected to produce such results against strong opponents.
Expert Betting Tips
The Spurs owe it to themselves to outplay Dallas, who finished the game against Miami less than 24 hours ago. At the start of the championship, Jason Kidd’s team does not seem a strong enough opponent to outplay, albeit young, the perfectly trained and disciplined Spurs of Gregg Popovich, especially since San Antonio have been without a win in their first few games of the season.
