Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks Odds, Prediction, and Pick
This coming week we have a pretty huge NBA match-up between two of the better teams in the NBA, and one of them who actually took down the NBA Championship this past season. The match-up between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks will kick off February in a big way, as this game will be played on the 1st of the month, which is a Wednesday at 8:00pm EST. While the Thunder have the better record overall, this one will be played in Dallas, and the team will also be getting their star back in Dirk Nowitzki. The story behind Nowitzki is an interesting one this season, as he lead the team to the Championship win last year, but was recently forced to sit out four games to work on his conditioning. I guess only time will tell if it helps out Dirk, but we assume that he'll be ready when it matters most.

As far as the Thunder go, this team is young, motivated, and is definitely a favorite to win the Western Conference this year. If they want to do that though, they'll have to prove that they can win against tough teams on the road, no matter when the game is. The Thunder are led by two stars in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who will both be a huge part of this game from the word go.

It's tough to bet against the defending champions at home, but this Thunder team is simply scary. They have a ton of talent, they are incredibly young, and they know how to play excellent all around basketball. I think that it's going to be a close game from the word go, and I really can't see either team blowing the other team out of the building at any point in this one. I'm going to ride the Oklahoma City Thunder and the combination of Durant and Westbrook here. I'll take the Thunder to win it by three.

I'd be shocked to see this one more than about three or five points one way or the other, mainly because the Mavericks will definitely be a tough out at home. Talent trumps in the end here though, so I'm going with the Oklahoma City Thunder to win it.
Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder +1.5
