Mavericks Odds: How to bet tonight’s game against the Timberwolves

The Mavericks have a 7 foot uphill climb on the second night of a back to back.

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Dallas Mavericks Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

After a lethargic and disappointing end to the forth quarter last night against a shorthanded Cleveland Cavalier team, the Dallas Mavericks now face the best defense in the league on the second night of a back-to-back. Playing in Minnesota would be a difficult task on normal rest. It’s hard to see to tonight’s game as anything more than a schedule loss. Minnesota is not a team you want to play with tired legs. Their swarming defense and ability to dominate the glass forces you to play all 48 minutes at a high level. On offense, you’ll get one good look if you’re lucky. On defense, they get a ton of second-chance opportunities and grind you down.

Outcome Odds

  • Spread: Dallas +10(-110)
  • O/U 229
  • Mavs ML: +340

Odds up to date as of 11:00 AM CST from DraftKings

This take might get me drawn and quartered, but I’d hammer the Wolves tonight. I can smell tonight’s blowout from across an ocean.

Player Props

  • Karl-Anthony Towns over 1.5 3s(-105)
  • Karl-Anthony Towns over 9.5 Rebs(-160)

If we assume Lively is tasked with battling Gobert in the paint, KAT should have his way with whoever the Mavericks throw his way. He’ll likely live on the free throw line and cruise to a double-double.

Play of the Day

  • Luka Doncic over 56.5 Pts/Rebs/Assts(+140)

Getting plus value on this prop lets me know Vegas is anticipating a blowout. His averages over the last 5 games would make this a no brainer normal circumstances. You’ll likely need a bit of luck for this to hit but that is already baked into the price.
