Score: 111 - 91
Point Spread: +7/-115 Minnesota
10* Minnesota (3:30 ET): I’ve got a ton of respect for Dallas and actually think they’re much better than their current WL record, which has them 7th in the Western Conference. In terms of both point differential and net efficiency rating, they are 5th in the entire league! However, with a questionable Luka Doncic, I am not about to lay points on the road w/ this team. It’s not just Doncic’s questionable status either. The Mavs can be wildly inconsistent (as they showed in a recent loss at Atlanta).
Dallas also lost in Miami Friday, which isn’t that big of a deal considering how good the Heat are at home. But the Mavs did give up 126 points as lack of defense continues to be an issue for them. Tonight certainly has the potential to be another game where they give up plenty of points. Minnesota has scored at least 123 in each of its last three games. If they can get there again, you have to like them at home in this price range.
Of course, the T’wolves are giving up plenty of points themselves. But they did just win at Miami, something Dallas failed to do. Now the T’wolves also just lost in Dallas and gave up 139 pts in doing so. I just think at home we’re going to get a better effort from them. As we saw last night w/ our winning call on Golden State, any team can win on a given night in this league. 10* Minnesota
