ESPN Brings Loaded Wednesday NBA Doubleheader

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks Betting Information

Thus far, the Lakers have struggled to stay above .500 and hold a playoff position.  Of great concern is the terrible NBA betting value the Lakers have demonstrated.  In like manner are the Mavericks.  Dallas is besieged to climb to .500 and out of the red.  By contrast, the Utah Jazz are fighting for the top seed in the Western Conference. Utah makes bettors happy with tidy early-season profits.  Meanwhile, the Clippers are suffering from big name and no value syndrome.  Or course, the loss of Kawhi Leonard is proving to be an LA body blow.

Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks CashBet Wagering Analysis

Few teams can match the top online sportsbook popularity of the Lakers.  But with that comes consistent overlay prices and red ink.  In like manner, the Mavericks draw betting action with Luka Doncic. With that comes higher costs and poor betting value.

LA Clippers at Utah Jazz CashBet Wagering Analysis

At the onset of the betting on NBA season, LA was behind the eight-ball.  Cause by missing their marquee man Kawhi Leonard.  This setback has thrown gamblers and betting results off balance.  Wise Guys love Utah for its relative anonymity and fundamentally sound style of play.  Sharps know that the Jazz are one of the most consistent performers on the board.

Late on, the Clippers have covered only two of their last ten games.  Three of their most recent four games went under the pro basketball betting total.  LA stands at 15-12 straight up, 12-15 against the spread, and 12-15 over/under.  Overall, the Clippers rank 20th for scoring offense and 23rd for offensive rebounding.  Defensively, LA ranks 7th overall and 25th for rebounding.  In sum, Paul George leads the Clippers with 25.0 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game.

Utah has paid in five of its most recent seven games.  In just two of their last ten matchups, the Jazz went under the basketball betting total.  As a result, Utah is 19-7 straight up, 15-11 against the spread, and 13-12 over/under.  Utah ranks 2nd for scoring offense and 4th for offensive rebounds.  While defensively, the Jazz rank 4th for points allowed and 1st for rebounding.  First among Utah scorers is Donavan Mitchell, with 24.8 points per game.
