BetMGM Promo Guide: Mavs-Bucks

In looking for a plus-money wager, let’s assess how the Mavericks and Bucks stack up on Friday night.

Here’s the lowdown on both teams according to Action’s basketball analysts:

Per Chris Baker on the Mavericks impressive shooting:

Dallas has been one of the most inconsistent teams through the first quarter of this NBA season. They’ve had impressive wins over teams like the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets, but they’ve also had embarrassing losses against teams like the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, and Oklahoma City Thunder.

If you listened to their fanbase you would think this team was near the bottom of the league, yet in reality they are 11-11 and rank seventh in Adjusted Net Rating per Dunks And Threes. The Mavs have legitimate issues, but at their core they are a heliocentric team that revolves around Luka Doncic. Their structure of one guy creating 3-point looks for a bunch of surrounding role players leaves them prone to variance and I think that they are due for some positive regression.

Joe Dellera on the Bucks finding success against the lower-end of the league:

The Bucks have had an excellent start to the season: They are 15-5, sit fifth in the league in Adjusted Net Rating, and only allow their opponents to score 107.1 points per 100 possessions, per Cleaning the Glass, best mark in the NBA. They take care of business on a nightly basis.

This has improved against the league’s worst teams though. When the Bucks have played teams in the bottom 10 of point differential, they are 8-1 with a +9.7 point differential and have held their opponents to just 105.3 points per 100 possessions. This is a hallmark for the Bucks over the last couple of years and last season against bottom 10 teams they had a +13.2 point differential while allowing just 106.6 points per 100, per Cleaning the Glass.

Here’s how a $100 bet on Mavericks moneyline at +150 would result:

Outcome Cash Total $
Mavericks Win $150 $250
Mavericks Loses $0 $100 (free bets)

The Functions of Free Bets

Free bets are credits the book allots you. They cannot be kept whether win or lose and they cannot be withdrawn — only used to place bets at BetMGM.

Let’s assume the above Mavs-Bucks bet loses. We’ve got $100 and dump it on this NFL Sunday Parlay:

Bet Line
Vikings ML +115
Ravens ML +125
Total +383

The parlay hits, and we’ve won $383. We can do whatever we’d like with that money, Again, the free bets go poof. Lose, and they also go poof, but we win $0 this time.
