It all begins at 8PM Eastern Time on TNT as the Oklahoma City Thunder will host the Dallas Mavericks. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the home side Oklahoma City Thunder favored by -9.5 points with over under odds 198 points. Dallas got off to a very poor start as Dirk Nowitzki was sidelined with injury. Dallas has shown improvement as the team has won five of seven games entering play. They are an old team and owner Mark Cuban isn’t shy about talking about how tanking is beneficial for his franchise. That may just be sarcasm from the owners lips as the team is trying very hard on the court to win games. The stats are ugly on offense and defense for the Mavericks. They are a poor shooting team near the bottom of the league at 43.7% shooting. They are last in the NBA in three point shooting defense by allowing 39.6% shooting to opponents. Oklahoma City is just 27-19 and could open up on the road during the NBA playoffs. Russell Westbrook gets all the headlines for triple doubles but the Thunder could be a first round exit in the playoffs due near bottom ranking in the NBA in three point and free throw shooting.

The late night game tips at 10:30PM Eastern Time on TNT as the Utah Jazz are home to the LA Lakers. Utah is favored by -13 points with over under odds of 203.5 points. The LA Lakers after a promising 10-10 start to the season has gone 6-23 since. They are the worst defensive team in the NBA so pressure is on the offense night in and night out to shoot lights out to win games. Teams are shooting 48% on LA. Utah has a shot at earning home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs as the team sits at 29-18. Utah has defended well the past few seasons but now they are an above average shooting team that turned around this team into a contender in the West.
