This Wednesday November 26th (7:30 PM ET, ESPN), they will play the Dallas Mavericks who haven’t had a losing season since the last millennium. Lines haven’t yet been posted for the match. Since the game is being played in Dallas, expect the home team to be favorites in this game.

Knicks fans have guarded hope for the future now that Phil Jackson is at least nominally in charge. However, Jackson’s triangle offense isn’t easy to pick up right away, and the Knicks have also been dealing with injuries – Carmelo Anthony might have to miss this game after suffering back spasms on Monday. They’re currently 100/1 to win the NBA Championship.
The Mavericks (10-5 SU and ATS) have had the winning formula for years now. They’ve moved all the way up to 12/1 on the NBA Championship futures market; Dirk Nowitzki is back to MVP form, scoring 24.7 points per 36 minutes and hitting 42.9% of his 3 point shot attempts.
New York has covered three of its last four games against the Mavs, but getting the job done Wednesday could prove difficult, whether or not Anthony is able to suit up.
