The Timberwolves are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mavericks are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Timberwolves last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Mavericks last 5 overall. The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Dallas and 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

I don't want to back the Minnesota Timberwolves as much as the next guy, as they're banged up, don't cover numbers and are losing on the road by an average of 10.7 points. However, the Dallas Mavericks continue to be one of the more disappointing teams in the league, and that includes losing their last five games by an average of six points, and they're just 2-8 against the spread at home this season. It's the Timberwolves and the points or pass for me.
