Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 25.9 points and 12.5 rebounds while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 24.8 points and 3.5 assists. Jeff Teague is the third double-digit scorer and Robert Covington is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Minnesota Timberwolves are shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 75.3 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Timberwolves are allowing 36.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.5 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Timberwolves have won their last four road games.
The Dallas Mavericks look to stay hot after winning eight of their last nine games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 117.8 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 109.8 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 30.6 points and 9.6 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 17.2 points and 9.2 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and J.J. Barea is dishing two assists. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 77.3 percent from the free throw line.

The Timberwolves are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Timberwolves are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Dallas and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Timberwolves last 7 overall. The over is 13-5 in Mavericks last 18 overall.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have played their best ball on the road where they've won four straight and are winning by an average of 5.2 points. Still, I want nothing to do with these Timberwolves in their current form, as they're inconsistent as all hell and don't beat good teams. The Dallas Mavericks may have played last night, but they're one of the hotter teams in the league and are lighting things up offensively. I'll continue to ride the hot hand and lay the bucket with the Mavs. The Timberwolves aren't a good team.
