NBA Betting: DALLAS MAVERICKS at HOUSTON ROCKETS (4/21)

PRO BASKETBALL — April 21

DALLAS at HOUSTON
(GetThatBet Line: Rockets -6.5, Total 214) — It might be kind of logical to think that the Mavs would come up with a much bigger effort here; after all, they DID send the Rockets to the line 45 times in Game 1, didn’t they? But the problem was that they had a healthier Chandler Parsons in that game, at least for a while, and they only had to contend with Dwight Howard for 17 minutes, as the Houston center had foul trouble. But here in Game 2 we wonder if that will happen again, or if Tyson Chandler can pull down eight offensive rebounds, or that Dallas can hold James Harden to just four field goals. We have been suspect of the Mavs’ chemistry since Rajon Rondo became the point guard, and this team had kind of a low percentage of field goals coming from assists (19 out of 44). The Rockets got out to run quite a bit to, with 29 fast break points. We see a double-digit margin again.
