NBA Betting Predictions: Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves
Tonight the Dallas Mavericks coming off a huge road victory will be hitting the road again to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display Dallas as a -130 favorite giving up 2 points to Minnesota.
The Dallas Mavericks with a great effort the other day defeated the Denver Nuggets on the road 105-95. The Mavericks made 9 steals and created 17 turnovers to help them get past the fact they sent the Nuggets to the foul line 27 times. Dallas shot 44-90 from the floor and 9-28 from downtown.
Forward Dirk Nowitzki led the game with 25 points and made 5 assists upon news of making the all-star game. Vince Carter had 17 points shooting 7-12 from the floor and 3-7 on three point attempts to go with his 8 assists. Guard Rodrigue Beaubois played great from the bench scoring 13 points and shooting very efficiently hitting 5-8 from the field and hitting 2-3 from three point range.
The Minnesota Timberwolves lost the other day on the road 85-80 however have been playing very good against the Dallas Mavericks this year. Espeically Kevin Love who is back from serving his suspension kicking at a down player. They will certainly need him as Minnesota’s last effort against the Grizzlies was not a good one.
Jose Barea led the Timberwolves in scoring against Memphis with 17 points and 6 assists. After him the effort was just not there for the T-wolves as two players scored 13 points Derrick Williams and Michael Beasley and that is about it for scorers. Only other mentionable is center Nikola Pekovic’s 10 point 9 rebound performance.
NBA Prediction: The Minnesota Timberwolves have really owned the Dallas Mavericks this year with Kevin Love putting up 56 points and 28 rebounds in their last two appearances. However Dirk Nowitzki has found his rhythm and this could be a tight matchup as in the not so distant past Dallas dominated Minnesota regularly. I like the Minnesota Timberwolves here against the Dallas Mavericks with the return of Kevin Love in the lineup.
