2015 Free NBA Playoffs Picks: Dallas Mavericks @ Houston Rockets Game 1 Betting Odds and Expert NBA Predictions

The Dallas Mavericks come into this series having finished 50-32 overall in the regular season but a money burning 35-44-3 against the spread. Head coach Rick Carlisle has had to really earn his money this season as he’s had to fit in three new starters from last year’s club in center Tyson Chandler, forward Chandler Parsons and point guard Rajon Rondo. Carlisle has really had his work cut out for him in managing the moody Rondo as the former Celtic and Carlisle clashed in a profanity laced argument in the middle of a game this season. Rondo has been somewhat of a disappointment since being acquired via a trade with Boston as he’s averaged 9.3 points per game and 6.5 assists to go with 2.9 turnovers and an atrocious 45.2 free throw percentage in 28.4 minutes per game.

The Mavericks enter the postseason struggling on the road as they are just 4-8 straight up in their last 12 road games and 3-9 against the spread. Dallas will need to put it all together in this series if it doesn’t want to get embarrassed against a younger and more talented Rockets team. Dallas can lean on the fact that it is 13-6 in it’s last 19 games playing in Houston although they did go 0-2 at Houston this season. The Mavericks are mostly healthy heading into this series with only day-to-day minor injuries by Devin Harris(foot) and Chandler Parsons(knee) warranting injury report notes.

Head coach Kevin McHale has his Houston Rockets heading into the 2015 NBA Western Conference Playoffs believing they can make some big time noise. The Rockets finished the regular season an impressive 56-26 overall and are led by NBA MVP candidate James Harden who averages 27.4 points per game to go with 7 assists and 5.7 rebounds. The explosive 6-5, 220 pound native of Bellflower, California swingman is looking to quiet his critics who claim he is nothing but a stat padder who is incapable of leading a team far in the postseason. Frankly, we have some of the same doubts ourselves but we do feel this series is tailor made to his game and he should be able to put up monster numbers against the Mavericks.

The Rockets are a very tough team to beat at the Toyota Center as they went 30-11 in the regular season a terrific 26-15 against the spread. They Rockets closed the regular season playing outstanding basketball as they finished 10-3 straight up in their last 13 games. The Rockets will be without the services of the feisty Patrick Beverley as the 6-1, 185 pound guard is out with a wrist injury as well as 7 foot, 222 pound forward Donatas Motiejunas who is out with a back injury.

The Rockets won three out of the four regular season meetings with the Mavericks in the regular season including both games in Houston by scores of 95-92 and 99-94. We look for the Rockets to take Game 1 in this series but we do like the points with Dallas. We simply feel Dallas is the veteran type of team that turns it on when the bright lights of the NBA Playoffs come on and we feel they are too well coached and talented to let this game get out of hand. This game should be close within the final 3 minutes and we’ll take the dog and Dallas getting +5 points. Get more expert NBA picks for the 2015 NBA Playoffs.
