NBA Handicapper Ryan Worden Free Pick Timberwolves VS Mavericks

Timberwolves -5.5  O/U 217

The Minnesota Timberwolves travel to Dallas to take on the Mavericks. This is a crucial game for both teams for vastly different reasons. The Timberwolves are currently the 7th seed in the west with 6 games to play. The standings are so bunched up that the Wolves are only 1 game behind the 4th place Spurs and home court advantage in the first round. On the flip side, they are only 1.5 games ahead of the Clippers and possibly missing the playoffs altogether. The Mavericks currently have the 5th worst record in the NBA and owner Mark Cuban would love if they lost all 6 remaining games for better lottery odds.

For this RideTheHotHand.com free pick, I’m going after the total. For me this total is way too high with Dallas obviously in full tank mode. Against the Lakers on Wednesday night the Mavs played their starters for less than half the game and down the stretch were putting a D league team on the court with the likes of  Maxi Kleber, Kyle Collinsworth and Jalen Jones. That doesn’t sound like a team that cares about scoring a lot of points. The Timberwolves aren’t a great defensive team but they won’t have to do much in this one. If they know they have the game in hand they’ll cost to the finish line and start getting ready for a pivotal game against Utah Sunday. The Mavs score in the 90’s and this game easily goes UNDER. Take The UNDER Friday Night.
