Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves are massive favorites because of their dominance at home and the Mavs are certainly going to be without Luka, Kyrie, and Dereck Lively II. The Mavs could also be without Derrick Jones Jr and Dante Exum who are questionable. That's a lot of lost production. With that said, this line is massive, and the Timberwolves are still a young team that sometimes allows opponents to hang around. Also, a possible letdown spot for the Timberwolves after their big win over the Thunder. I'll take a shot with the boatload of points.
