Minnesota Timberwolves vs Dallas Mavericks 2/8/2021 Betting Odds
Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been struggling all-season without Karl-Anthony Towns and have been trying every combination they can find to get their motor running. This team is now the worst team in the NBA Western Conference with their record of 6-17. Three of those winning games came in the last ten games so there is progress but it is coming in very slow. Anthony Edwards has been starting for the Timberwolves and this is the perfect time for him to refine his game to fit better to the NBA-style of tempo. D’Angelo Russell has been their most consistent scorer but there is not much help after Malik Beasley.
Players to watch: K. Towns C 4 GP 4 GS 33 MIN 22 PTS 4 OR 8.5 DR 12.5 REB 4.3 AST 0.5 STL 2.8 BLK 2.5 TO 2.8 PF 1.7 AST/TO 26.63 PER
M. Beasley SG 23 GP 23 GS 31.8 MIN 20.1 PTS 1 OR 4 DR 5 REB 2.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 1.5 TO 1.5 PF 1.5 AST/TO 16.81 PER

Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks are glad to have Kristaps Porzingis back but the combination of him and Luka Doncic has been losing some steam. This team is now one of the worst in the conference and are two games behind the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans. Rumour has it that changes on the team is inevitable as Mark Cuban is shopping for a third superstar to help their international tandem. This is going to be a tough climb for the Mavericks even to make it at the top ten but they have the talent to do it. Doncic was high on the MVP radar to start the season but that is already far fetched.
Players to Watch: L. Doncic PG 23 GP 23 GS 34.9 MIN 27.9 PTS 1 OR 7.7 DR 8.7 REB 9.5 AST 1 STL 0.7 BLK 4.1 TO 1.9 PF 2.3 AST/TO 26.34 PER
