DALLAS - During one point of the COVID-19 induced sports hiatus, I found myself watching the televised Cornhole championships on a Saturday. I tuned into the broadcast, learned every detail about the strategy and the storylines between the teams and players. I leapt up off my couch to cheer as my favorite team took home the trophy…

Then it hit me. No offense to Cornhole, but I need basketball in my life.

Lucky for me, the restart of the 2019-20 NBA season is almost here … plus plenty of intriguing lines if you want to place your bets.

The Orlando ‘bubble’ is a so-far great success, reporting zero positive Coronavirus cases from its campus at Walt Disney World. The seventh-seeded Dallas Mavs (40-27) have eight regular-season games to attempt to better their slot and avoid the second-seeded Los Angeles Clippers in their fight for the NBA crown.

With their magic number down to two to clinch a playoff berth, the Mavs win total line is set at over/under 4.5 wins.

If wagers are your thing, here are some more interesting ones.
