Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

A new era has begun in with Minnesota Timberwolves with the new combination of DeAngelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns. But putting both players on the floor together has been a great challenge due to injuries. Over the past ten games, this team has lost 9 games and their last victory was against the Los Angeles Clippers back on February 8. In this game, Towns is against doubtful for this game and it will now be on the shoulders of Malik Beasley and Russel to lead them. Still, this team has not enough firepower to battle with the Mavericks. Currently, the Timberwolves are sitting second to the last place in the NBA Western Conference just above the Golden State Warriors with a 16-39 record.

Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Dallas Mavericks have been struggling to stay afloat and for the past ten games, they have split their wins and losses to five and five. They are coming off a tough loss from the Atlanta Hawks in which they lost by four points. This team now sits at the 7th spot in the NBA Western Conference playoff picture at 34-23 and they are just a game above the Memphis Grizzlies. They need this win to stay ahead and they have to do it without Luka Doncic who is expected to miss this game. Ironically, the Mavericks are a better team on the road and at home, they are 15-14.
