Mavericks Thunder Game 3 Line

The Mavericks Thunder Game 3 line for the 2011 NBA Playoffs was coming in at -2.5 in favor of Oklahoma City across the board.  The series is currently tied.

Some important stats and trends to consider before betting on this game:

While these two teams have split their head-to-head matchups over the past 6 games, the home team has won outright in five of those, and by more than the current spread.  

Thunder are 6-1 Against The Spread in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 but are just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600.

The Mavericks, on the other hand, are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.

The Mavs are also 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games as a road underdog of 0.5-4.5.

In all Playoffs the Mavericks are an amazing 11-1 Against The Spread. 

With Oklahoma City having won the last Playoffs game in this series, Dallas enjoys a relatively strong edge coming into Game 3 in our opinion.

"I'm not going to say a loss is ever good, because I don't ever like to lose. It doesn't do well for my sleep pattern," Dallas center Tyson Chandlersaid Friday following his team’s loss to the Thunder. "But sometimes you need to get hit on the chin and get woke up. Last night, they hit us on the chin. Hopefully, that woke us up."

Oklahoma City managed to wipe away an 11-point deficit then controlled the remainder of the game. 

Dallas center Tyson Chandler on how to beat Oklahoma City in Game 3:  “We just have to have a better understanding of what we have to do and accomplish to win a basketball game. ... I just think that we haven't executed our game plan. We've got to trust that the coaches know what they're doing when they're breaking down the film. That's what they get paid for, and we get paid to execute it. Now it's our time to get out and execute it."
