Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks Betting Info, odds

When LeBron James and Anthony Davis were lost to injury, LA was deserted.  Gamblers ran for the tall grass with their tails tucked between their legs.  Of course, this had a significant effect on the Lakers’ NBA betting value.  With more gamblers betting against Los Angeles, their prices improved.  In fact, the Lakers were transformed from perpetual overlays into bargain values.  And it has meant an increase in profitability.  Counter to that is a Mavericks team that is losing money as it wins games.  Dallas overcame a poor start to take the Southwest Division lead.
