Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 4: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The Dallas Mavericks will try to finish off the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Western Conference Finals and earn a trip to the NBA Finals when the two teams meet again in Game 4 on Tuesday night in Texas.

Minnesota was flying high after upsetting the defending NBA champion Denver Nuggets in the previous round, but it has all fallen apart against Dallas. The Timberwolves dropped each of the first two contests at home and then lost on the road via a 116-107 score on Sunday.

With Game 4 tipping off at 8:30 pm ET on Tuesday and televised on TNT, it’s time to break down the betting odds and make our best bets.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 4 betting picks and predictions

Dallas Mavericks -2.0 (-110)

After losing the first two games of the series at home, the Timberwolves came to play on Sunday night. They were competitive until the end in a battle that was much closer than the final nine-point margin suggests.

However, there is a big difference between being down 2-0 and 3-0. No team in the history of the NBA has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series.

There is no reason to think that this will be the first time. With their season all but over, the mental toll of three consecutive setbacks has to be weighing heavily on the Timberwolves.

Even if mentality is put to one side, Dallas is simply the better team right now. Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving are both in outstanding form, while guys like P.J. Washington and Daniel Gafford are playing their support roles to perfection.

All things considered, the Mavericks will likely cover a very small -2.0 Spread and close out a surprisingly quick series in style.

Over 210.0 Total Points (-110)

The total has climbed up to 210.0 from its spots at 207.0 and 207.5 earlier in the series, but it may not be high enough to prevent another Over result. All three games have gone Over the line, with 213, 217 and 223 points being scored.

It’s especially worth noting that the over has cashed all three times even though Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging just 15.0 points per game this series and Anthony Edwards has not been able to hit the ocean, much less the net (38.6 percent shooting overall; 33.3 percent from deep).

Even slightly better production from those two stars should allow Minnesota to play its part in yet another high-scoring affair.

At the other end of the court, Rudy Gobert and company are showing no signs of being able to slow down Donic and Irving. As such, Over 210.0 Total Points looks like a winning play.

Kyrie Irving Over 23.5 Points (-115)

The NBA is all about matchups. For example, Towns has been a borderline non-factor in this series after being very effective in the first two rounds against the Phoenix Suns and Denver.

Irving was awesome in a six-game series against the Los Angeles Clippers to begin Dallas’ playoff campaign, but he did not do much of anything against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

It’s safe to say that this matchup with Minnesota is a great one for the former Duke star. So far in this series he is averaging 27.7 points per game while shooting 52.5 percent from the floor and 43.8 percent from three-point range.

In one regular-season contest against the Timberwolves he scored 35 points while draining six of eight attempts from the land of plenty.

With Doncic on fire and having been especially clutch in pressure moments, the Timberwolves should be committed to making someone else beat them. That will likely lead to more open looks for Irving as he looks to deliver yet another standout performance.
