The Miami Heat will get a second chance to beat the Dallas Mavericks and pay off for their supporters on the NBA Betting Odds when those teams hit the hardwood in South Florida on Thursday night this week.
The Heat fell to the Mavericks in the NBA Finals last season, but they got a little bit of revenge in their season opener on Christmas Day when they rolled to a 105-94 victory in Dallas as a 4.5-point road favorite at Bovada Sportsbook.
That put an end to Miami's three-game losing streak against Dallas and they covered the spread for the first time against the Mavericks in four meetings. Overall the Heat are 3-7 SU and 4-5-1 ATS in their last 10 games against Dirk Nowitzki and company.
LeBron James poured in 37 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Heat in their opener against the Mavericks, with Dwyane Wade good for 26 points and six assists in that contest. Chris Bosh was held to just four points but collected seven rebounds.
That holiday matchup turned into the third straight OVER result between the teams.
On the Odds to win 2012 NBA Championship this week the Heat are still the favorites to win this year's championship despite their loss in the Finals last season; they were listed at 7/4 on those odds at Bovada Sportsbook at last update. Miami is also pegged at 10/13 to win the East.
