DALLAS MAVERICKS VS. NEW YORK KNICKS PREDICTIONS

After finishing fourth in the East with a record of 41-31 SU last year, New York briefly kept that same ball rolling with an excellent start to this season, as the Knicks opened with an impressive 7-4 SU and 6-5 ATS run– which included tough victories over the Sixers (2), Bucks, Celtics, Bulls.

The Knicks have looked like a shell of that squad since their opening stretch though, considering New York dwells at 13-17 SU and ATS across the last 30 games – despite getting tagged as favorites in 17 of those contests.

On the other hand, Dallas also posted a strong start to this season, as the Mavericks kicked things off with a solid 9-4 SU run – although, those wins didn’t come particularly easy, considering Dallas went just 5-8 ATS across that timeframe.

Injuries, along with a strengthened schedule, quickly caught up with Dallas towards the end of December though, considering the Mavericks wrapped up 2021 with a discouraging 8-14 SU skid – before ultimately kicking off the New Year with a 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS run.

I’ll lay the points with Dallas here, as despite the Knicks sitting at 4-0 SU and ATS across their last four home games, my vote of confidence still belongs to a Mavericks squad riding impressive six-game win streak that includes double-digit victories over the Bulls, Warriors, and Nuggets.

DALLAS MAVERICKS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 22-18
  • ATS: 21-19
  • O/U: 13-26-1

After a disappointing first-round exit from last year’s playoffs, Dallas jumped out to an encouraging start to this season, as the Mavericks opened with wins in seven of their first ten games – before suffering a continuous cycle of health issues, leading to their inevitable fall to 22-18 SU and 21-19 ATS.

Dallas is a very dangerous offensive squad when Luka Doncic is present, but clearly, the two-time All-Pro can’t single-handedly propel his team to elite stature, considering Dallas ranks just 24th in scoring and 16th in offensive efficiency (105.8 PPG, 1.068 OE) – which is inexcusable for a squad with such a gifted offensive player at the helm.

DALLAS MAVERICKS VS. NEW YORK KNICKS HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Mavericks and Knicks split a two-game regular-season set last year, with the first of those matchups staying well under the total and resulting in a double-digit victory for Dallas (99-86) – and the second soaring over and resulting in a double-digit win for New York (117-109).

DALLAS MAVERICKS VS. NEW YORK KNICKS BETTING CONCLUSION

After posting a sixth straight victory on Sunday night, the Mavericks enter Wednesday’s contest as narrow road favorites over the visiting Knicks – marking the fourth time New York has been an underdog across the last six games.

I’ll lay the points with Dallas here, as the Knicks are just 3-3 SU and ATS in their last six games, which includes losses by 15+ PTS to the Celtics, Raptors, and Thunder – setting the stage for a tough matchup against a Mavericks squad that’s 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS across that same window, boasting tough victories over the Bulls, Warriors, and Nuggets.

DALLAS MAVERICKS VS. NEW YORK KNICKS BETTING TRENDS

  • The Mavericks are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last six games.
  • The Knicks are 4-2 ATS in their last six matchups against Dallas.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the last seven Mavericks' games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the last 11 matchups between New York and Dallas.
