Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Picks
The Mavericks should nail this win even without Doncic. Dallas is a heavy favorite to prevail by NBA best bets, needing the win more than Minnesota. The Timberwolves are severely undermanned and recently waived Allen Crabbe. Though Crabbe has not been playing well, it shrinks the rotation of coach Ryan Saunders even more.
