Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks. The NBA Pick for this outing is Dallas -3. Dallas showed dominance in their first two games in the pre-season even without their top-scorer Kristaps Porzingis who is still recovering from knee surgery during the off-season. Minnesota strived to get organized during their first two pre-season games as many new talents were drafted in their roster. The Timberwolves need more time to blend these new talents and that would be a problem in dealing with the stronger and well-organized team of the Mavericks. Final Score Prediction, the Dallas Mavericks will win and cover ATS at 123-101.
