DALLAS MAVERICKS (-4)
We just cashed the other night by going against the Wolves on a +10 point spread against Cleveland and they responded by getting us the easy casher and getting blown out by 26 points. This might not be in the 20+ blowout range, but we expect the Mavericks to pull off the convincing win here nonetheless today. They get to face a Timberwolves squad that is now in the midst of a 5-game skid and is now 1-9 ML and 2-8 ATS in their L10 overall. Even worse, the Timberwolves have been deadly for anyone backing them lately as they hold a 4-15-1 ATS record in their L20 games. They haven’t hit 100 points in any of their L10 games overall and they have been held to 102 points or less in each of their L15 games. That could spell money for the Mavericks as they have posted a 5-1 ATS in their L6 when holding opponents to less than 100 points in a game and are now 7-2 ATS in the L9 in that situation. Minnesota hasn’t been worth buying the tickets to watch at home, holding a 3-9 ML and 2-9-1 ATS record in their L12 games played in Minneapolis. Add to that, the Wolves are now 4-12 ML and 4-11-1 ATS in their L16 games versus Western Conference opponents. Minnesota is also 2-9 ML and 2-8-1 ATS when playing as the underdog at home. Not surprisingly, Dallas is 4-1 ML and 3-2 ATS in the L5 meetings. The Mavericks took all 3 meetings last season by an average of nearly 15 points per contest. Roll with the DALLAS MAVERICKS here…..
