The NBA is back on the betting schedule as the Dallas Mavericks will once again clash with Minnesota Timberwolves. Dallas suffered a 126-118 road loss to Miami in their previous game as a 2.5-point underdog Friday night. And on the other side, Minnesota lost 136-125 on the road by Orlando as an eight-point favourite in their last contest
Dallas Mavericks Form
The Mavericks are a good team this year. However, their form is not consistent as they have 3 wins and 3 defeats in their last 6 games. Especially, the defeat in the game against the Hawks was disappointing. However, the bounced back and beat the Timberwolves and now they will be facing them again. nd now the Mavericks are second in the Southwest Division, two games behind the Rockets for the top spot. As for the Western Conference playoff picture, the team is seventh in the Western Conference, 9.5 games behind the Lakers for the top spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Mavericks score an average of 116.4 points per game on the season. Houston is collecting 47.1 boards a night combined with 24.3 dimes per contest. The Mavericks give up an average of 110.4 points per game on the year. And that is the 15th defensive record in the NBA.
Minnesota Timberwolves Form
The Timberwolves suffered a defeat in the game against the Magic in their last game. Moreover, it is safe to say that they do not have a good season so far. Therefore, the Timberwolves are in the basement of the Northwest Division, 21 games behind the Nuggets for the top spot. As for the Western Conference playoff picture, the team is 14th with 11 games behind the Grizzlies for the final playoff spot. The only positive was their game against the Heat where they managed to win. Also, they have been scoring more points lately.
On the offensive side of the game, the Timberwolves score an average of 112.5 points per game, good for the 13th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45.6 boards per game combined with 23.7 dimes per night.
Also, their defensive record stands at 116.1 conceded points per game which is the 26th defensive record in the NBA.
Both teams have a good chance of winning this game. The Timberwolves are improving offensively and that is something to consider when placing bets on them. However, Dallas just won against them at home and the Mavericks away record is actually better. Also, Dallas has Doncic back in the team, therefore I expect a win for the Mavericks in this one.
