Dallas Sports Fan – Mavs Are Streaking, Stars Are Sliding, Rangers And Cowboys Are Retooling
It’s not a Bet Online scam if you see the Dallas Mavericks moving up the pecking order of NBA betting favorites as the defending champions are starting to come alive, as proven by their recent hot streak. On the ice, the Stars are in danger of falling out of the playoff picture, while the Cowboys and Texas Rangers continue their offseasons.
The Mavericks have now won five in a row as they head out for weekend road games in Philadelphia and New York, and smart BetOnline players would have known not to count Dallas out after a slow start. The streak has included a pair of wins over Denver, as well as Minnesota on the road and home games against Portland and the Los Angeles Clippers, so they’re beating good teams. The Mavericks finally seem to be healthy and they’ll need all hands on deck this week; after their meetings with the 76ers and Knicks, the Mavericks return home to host Boston and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Stars head into Thursday’s home game against Calgary on a three-game skid and they’re four points out of eighth place in the tough Western Conference, having lost at Buffalo and Detroit as well as at home against Los Angeles. They’ve likely fallen out of favor with players that use price per head software as the Stars scored five goals in those three games; it doesn’t matter how good your defense is, you’re not going to reach the postseason by scored less than two goals a game. The Stars will be in Phoenix on Saturday night, at home against Nashville on Sunday, and then in Montreal on Tuesday.
There hasn’t been much to talk about when it comes to the Cowboys in the offseason; those who work with bookie software will find Dallas as a reasonable darkhorse for the Super Bowl next season, and everyone is preparing to make another run next season. The Cowboys have also stated that they’ll pass on Randy Moss, who has come out of retirement on his 35th birthday and he has always played well against Dallas, who passed on him in the 1998 draft, instead selecting defensive end Greg Ellis. That may not have been smart, but avoiding Moss at this point, especially with all the youth the Cowboys already have at receiver, is the best move for Dallas.
The Rangers signed Mike Napoli to a one-year deal as they’re getting ready for spring training, but the big story going into camp is outfielder Josh Hamilton, who has had well-publicized problems with alcohol as of late and has gone back to counseling. The Rangers have enough to get by without Hamilton, but they’re obviously a better team with him in the lineup, so keep an eye on his story before making any sports bets at Bodog for the World Series.
