Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 4 Betting Preview

Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Finals is set for Tuesday night, and this could be the end of the series. Dallas is coming into this game with a 3-0 series lead, and they are one win away from the NBA Finals. 

Minnesota entered this series with a ton of momentum after getting past the Denver Nuggets in the previous series. That momentum didn’t carry over into this round though as the Timberwolves have not played well enough to win a single game. 

Dallas was in the Western Conference Finals two years ago, but that series didn’t go as well as this one has. The Mavericks took control of this series by winning two games on the road, and they got the job done at home in Game 3.

The Dallas Mavericks are 1.5-point betting favorites, and the over/under line in this matchup is set at 210.5 total points.

Stars Not Shining For Minnesota

Karl-Anthony Towns has been a shell of himself so far in the Western Conference Finals, and that has become a major issue for this team. Minnesota has yet to score more than 108 points in any game in this series, and that’s just not good enough to get the job done. 

Anthony Edwards did score 26 points in the Game 3 loss, but he has not been able to carry his team to wins in this series. Minnesota needs to find a way to shoot the ball well, but that hasn’t been a strength of this team. 

The Timberwolves could set the tone by being great on the defensive end of the floor, but they are now facing a Dallas team with momentum. 

Dynamic Duo Leading Dallas

The Dallas Mavericks got 33 points from Luka Doncic in the Game 3 win, and he has been playing some great basketball. Dallas is also getting huge plays from Kyrie Irving in this series, and that has really been the difference. 

The Mavericks are coming into this game with a ton of momentum on offense, and that will make them a tough team to stop in this matchup. Role players have also stepped up, and this team is on a mission to advance. 

This team hasn’t gotten enough credit for their defensive play in the postseason, but that is another reason that they have a big lead in this series. 

Mavericks Moving On

The betting odds for this game suggest that Minnesota will come out swinging in this matchup, but that was also the case in the Game 3 loss on Sunday night. Minnesota just can’t seem to stop the stars for the Mavericks, and they aren’t shooting the ball well at all. 

Dallas just has two superstars that are setting the tone, and Doncic and Irving just won’t let this team lose in this round. The Mavericks would love to get some extra rest before the NBA Finals, and that will be a huge key in this matchup. 

Bet on the Dallas Mavericks at -1.5 to cover the spread, but this game could end up being a blowout as they are heading to the NBA Finals.
