Dallas Mavericks +3.5: You guys have, by now, realized that a lot of my plays are fades of particular teams in particular spots. It’s interesting, really, when it comes right down to it, that I get so caught up in who is going to stink on a given night and don’t pay as much attention to who is going to be better, but it is what it is. Here, the Wolves are coming off a monster win over the Lakers, and you could tell they were UP(!!!) for that game. This one has Sunday afternoon letdown written all over it against a Mavs team still dealing with an injury to Luka Doncic but working on a number of days of rest. That advantage will make all the difference as the Wolves will struggle to have the same level of fire in this one (still down Anthony Edwards on their own side) and the Mavs are a team that has, over the last couple years, figured out a way to run offense without Luka that still generates pretty good looks, particularly from 3-pt range. This game will be closely contested, so I’ll take the side with the points.
