Dallas Mavericks vs Houston Rockets Predictions comes ahead of the clash between the two sides in the NBA on 31 July 2020, Friday. Let us take a look at the match preview, including odds and H2H, as we try to provide the best betting tips for this tie.

Dallas Mavericks vs Houston Rockets Preview

The Dallas Mavericks are performing unexpectedly well this season, thanks in large part to the excellent form of their young leader Luka Doncic. The Slovenian has a lineup of 28.7 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 8.7 assists this season and is one of the leading contenders for the MVP. His all-star partner Kristaps Porzingis also has impressive numbers: 19.2 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. Dallas has no problems with their offense, their main difficulties lie in defense. If the Mavericks can hold back James Harden and Russell Westbrook, they have a good chance to win this game. As for the roster, all the best players arrived in Orlando except for centers Willie Cauley-Stein and Dwight Powell.

Predicted lineup:

  • PG Luka Doncic
  • SG Seth Curry
  • SF Tim Hardaway Jr.
  • PF Maxi Kleber
  • C Kristaps Porzingis

The Houston Rockets have yet to reach their full potential and are performing below the expectations. The star duo of James Harden and Russell Westbrook have not yet established a proper communication, and now they will have to rebuild the game after the trade of their only true center Clint Capela. Lack of the best sniper Eric Gordon is another problem, but the main one is their poor defense. If Houston wants to win the next game, they have to stop Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.

Predicted lineup:

  • PG Russell Westbrook
  • SG James Harden
  • SF Ben McLemore
  • PF Robert Covington
  • C P.J. Tucker

Dallas Mavericks vs Houston Rockets Head to Head

This season the teams have two H2H games. They played the first game on 24/11/19 at Houston Toyota Center. In that game, the Dallas Mavericks won with a score of 137 – 123. As for the stats and highlights, for Mavs Luka Doncic scored 41 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. had 31, and Kristaps Porzingis added 23 points. For the Rockets James Harden scored 32 points, while Russell Westbrook had 27.

In the second game that was played 1/2/20 at Houston Toyota Center, the hosts won with a score of 128 – 121. James Harden scored 35 points, and Russell Westbrook added 32 points. As for the Mavericks, Kristaps Porzingis scored 35 points, Seth Curry added 16, and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 15. Luka Doncic didn’t play in this one.

In this match, my pick is Houston Rockets. Before the season was suspended, the Dallas Mavericks were in better shape than their opponents. However, it doesn't mean anything now. They are off to a fresh start, and their chances are equal now. Both teams have almost all the best players in the ranks but the amazing form that James Harden gained during the quarantine speaks in favor of Houston. The Beard has trained hard and lost weight, which will give him even more freedom on the court. However, the form of the Dallas leader is suspicious; there were photos, which show that Doncic gained excess weight during the quarantine. So, my prediction is Houston Rockets wins with -1.5 point spread.
