Sports betting fans to wager on Dallas Mavericks overcoming losing streak?

Despite the Dallas Mavericks losing their last six games, sports betting fans may want to place a wager on the basketball team turning their poor run of form around when they take on the Los Angeles Lakers tonight (January 19th).

However, a failure to beat the reigning NBA champions will see the Mavericks continue on their worst streak for nearly 12 years, with February 1999 the last time they lost seven successive matches.

“Our competitive level has to come up, it is as simple as that,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle states.

And while star player Dirk Nowitzki has recently returned from injury, CBS Sports reports that the Mavericks “are finding it just as hard to post a victory” since the German’s comeback.

The broadcaster stated that he has scored an average of 16.5 points since his return to the line-up, down from the 24.1 he registered before his period on the sidelines.

Sports betting fans may be interested to note that the LA Lakers have only lost two of the ten games played so far this month, with their most recent victory seeing them beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-94.
