After giving up a staggering 51 points to Steph Curry on the road, the Dallas Mavericks are at the American Airlines Center to host the Portland Trail Blazers in a shootout of an NBA betting tilt tonight at 8:30 PM ET.
Both teams are among a fearsome foursome, including the Rockets and Clippers, coming out of the Western Conference that are separated by two and half games. Where Portland has the luck of being in the Northwest division with the Thunder who were without their top two stars at the same time for a large portion of the beginning of the season, which will give them a great shot at having a top-four seed in the playoffs. Dallas, on the other hand, has no such luck while being grouped in a division with the Grizz, Rockets & defending champion Spurs.

Analyzing The Blazers Vs Mavs Online Betting Odds & My Final Score Prediction
This will be the second time the Mavs and Blazers met this season as Portland won at the Moda Center on November 6, with a 108-87 result while covering a 2 point spread that had the home team as the favorite. Dallas has covered the spread in six of the last eight meetings in the series, but in two of the last three the best bet has been the Blazers.
