NBA Playoffs odds will be set for game five of the sportsbook betting NBA Playoff series between the Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets. NBA Playoffs odds went Denver's way in game four despite their 117-119 loss as they were 2.5-point sportsbook betting road dogs, good for a payoff by a half a point!
The Nuggets are the hottest team going against the NBA Playoffs odds with 9 sportsbook betting payoffs in 9 games. A big reason for Denver's success against the NBA Playoffs odds is their offense which is ranked number 1 in the NBA post season so far.
In game four with the Mavericks facing elimination from the NBA Playoffs odds on their home court, they rallied from a double digit deficit in the second half with a 66-54 advantage to win the game and force a fifth game against the NBA Playoffs odds back at Denver.
Dirk Nowitzki was the star of game four and the reason that Dallas is still alive against the NBA Playoffs odds as he poured in 44 points and added 13 rebounds. Jason Kidd added 10 rebounds, 6 assists, and 13 points while Josh Howard added 11 rebounds and 21 points for Dallas' best effort against the NBA Playoffs odds so far in this series. Carmelo Anthony, the fifth leading scorer against the NBA Playoffs odds, scored 41 points for the Nuggets while Chauncey Bilups added 24.
So far in the post season Anthony has averaged 26.7-points per game while Bilups is averaging 21.4-points per game. Nene is the leading Denver rebounder with 7.3-per game while Bilups leads in assists.
Dallas has the fifth ranked offense in the NBA Playoffs so far and is led by Nowitzki, who is averaging 26.2-points per game. Howard is averaging 16.0-points per game. Kidd leads in assists and Nowitzki leads in rebounds.
As good as Dallas was in game four, everything broke right for them at the end and Nowitzki had his game of the year in front of the home fans. It will be very difficult for Dallas to duplicate that effort at Denver with the Nuggets playing in front of their home fans with a chance to close out the deal.

Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
