Dallas Mavericks vs New York Knicks Pick, Predictions, and Odds
This upcoming week we have a match-up between two of the more talked about teams in the NBA this season. The Dallas Mavericks are coming off of a huge NBA Championship win last year, and are led by a strong core of players including a superstar in Dirk Nowitzki. Overall this year, they started off slowly but have put together a nice record of 21-14 through the All-Star break. The Knicks on the other hand struggled to get it going, and were only 17-18 going into the break, but they were definitely one of the hotter teams heading into it. This was in large part thanks to their new point guard sensation Jeremy Lin, who has been a huge part of leading this team back into the potential playoff talks for this season. While the Knicks have one of the more talented teams in the NBA, one thing that they were lacking was consistent play from the point guard position, and they've gotten that from Lin.

These two teams will now go head to head on Tuesday, March 6th, and tip off is set for 8:30pm EST. The game will be played in Dallas, and both of these teams will most likely be going into this game focused on proving that they belong in serious talks to contender for their respective conferences. There are a few interesting match-ups here, but two that you should keep your eye on include Dirk Nowitzki against Amare Stoudemire at the power forward position, and Carmelo Anthony against Shawn Marion at the small forward position. Anthony is one of the best players in the NBA, but Marion is definitely one of the best defenders out there today. This game will get a lot of hype around it, but should also get a ton of action from the sports bettors out there as well.

It's tough not to like the Mavericks on their home court, but realistically they haven't been dominant when playing in front of their home crowd this season. I really expect a strong second half of the season from the Knicks, who will finally be at full strength consistently (hopefully). I'm going to go out on a limb here and go with the Knicks because of their ability to run, and I'm not sure that the Mavericks will be able to slow down the pace, or keep up with the Knicks otherwise. It'll be a tight ball game, and I could even see the Mavs holding the lead late in the fourth, but I'm going with the Knicks to get the upset.

I almost certainly expect the Mavericks to be the favorites going into this game, but I wouldn't be shocked for the line to be very small. Regardless though, I'm riding the Knicks to get the upset on the road, and if I can get points with New York then I'll be all over it.
Pick: New York Knicks +107
