Mavs vs Wolves Betting Trends

Here is our Mavs vs Wolves betting trends:

  • This season, the Timberwolves are 20-21 against the spread when they are at least 5.5 points ahead.
  • This season, the Mavericks are 2-6 against the spread when they are underdogs by 5.5 points or more.
  • The Timberwolves and Mavericks average 23.4 more points than the total of 207.5 for this game.
  • The two clubs’ opponents average 222.1 points per game, which is 14.6 more than the game’s over/under of 207.5 points.
  • The Timberwolves’ average point total in games this season is 12.0 more than their current total.
  • Dallas’ average point total this season is 26.0 points more than the game’s over/under.
  • Minnesota has a 40-40-2 record against the spread this season.
  • The Mavericks are 48-34-0 against the spread this season.


The MAVERICKS (+180) remain undervalued in away games. Dallas is 3-0 straight up/ATS in its previous three away games, allowing just 102.3 points per game. A veteran club that is completely committed to defense should be fairly consistent on the road.

The Timberwolves’ top player, Edwards, is 22 years old. After a 7-game series against the Denver Nuggets, he appears exhausted. Meanwhile, Kyrie Irving (30 points in Game 1) appears to be just getting started after conserving energy and finding his spots against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Against the spread

The Mavericks +5.5 (-110) should hit, but Dallas ML at plus money is a better option if you want to take advantage of a greater payoff.


The Under won all four regular-season matchups and was close to paying in Game 1 despite a 60-point first quarter. The Timberwolves had the best defense in the NBA this season, and the Mavericks appear to be improving defensively during the playoffs.

Nothing in this game says Over to me, especially if Conley isn’t available to help the Timberwolves’ offense.
