BEST ODDS TO BET ON:
- Underdogs: Mavericks +2 (-110)
- Timberwolves vs Mavericks Over/Under: 227.5 points
The Mavericks (41-31-1 ATS) are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games and 10-3 SU in their last 13 outings. The total gas gone UNDER in seven of Dallas’ last nine games, even as the Mavs are 8-0 SU in their last eight contests against an opponent in the Western Conference.
Minnesota (41-32-1 ATS) is 10-3 ATS in its last 13 matches and 10-3 SU in its last 13 outings played in March. The Wolves have lost their last two games, including a 116-125 defeat to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, that slowed down its bid to unseat the Denver Nuggets (43-31) for the last slot to gain an outright playoff berth.
Dallas has won five of its last seven games, including straight, and is coming off a 110-91 decision over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. The Mavericks hope to see healthy All Star guard Luka Doncic, who is listed as probable to play on Friday, with Spencer Dinwiddie (18.2 ppg, 3.5 rpg) needing to step up if Dallas hopes to add to Minnesota’s woes.
