Our Deep-3 picks are 8-1 this week and we’ve got the latest version right here:

Dallas Mavericks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Where: Target Center, Minneapolis, MN

When: Friday, January 11, 8:00 PM. ET.

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be going for their fourth consecutive win when they take on the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night.

Mavericks Going For Second Consecutive Win

The Mavericks were able to snap a three-game losing streak with a win over the Phoenix Suns in their last game and they will try to build on the win by defeating the Timberwolves on Friday, giving them their second win in a row.

Dallas hasn’t played very well offensively this season, averaging 109.7 points per game, which is 19th in the league. The team is shooting 45 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range.

Rookie sensation Luka Doncic leads the team with 19.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game. Harrison Barnes is averaging 18 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, while DeAndre Jordan is averaging 10.9 points and 14 rebounds per game.

The Mavericks have been decent on the defensive end, holding opponents to 109.3 points per game, which is 12th in the league. They held their last three opponents to 102.3 points per game and will need a similar effort to beat the Timberwolves on Friday.

Timberwolves Going For Fifth Win In Seven Games

The Timberwolves surprised a lot of people this week when they fired head coach Tom Thibodeau. Despite the distraction that came with the dismissal, the team has played well, winning their last three games. They will be going for their fourth win in a row and fifth win in their last seven games when they face the Mavericks.

Minnesota has played well offensively, averaging 111.6b points per game, which is 12th in the league. The team is shooting 45 percent from the field and 35 percent from three-point range.

Karl-Anthony Towns leads the way for the Timberwolves, averaging 22.1 points and 12.3 rebounds per game. Derrick Rose is averaging 18.9 points and 4.8 assists per game, while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 17.9 points and 4.1 rebounds per game.

The Timberwolves haven’t played as well on the defensive end, giving up 111 points per game, which is 18th in the league. They gave up 119 points to Oklahoma City in their last game and need to play better to beat the Mavericks on Friday night.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

I am very passionate about sports, so I kind of feel bad that I get paid to do this. As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
