Betting Odds: Timberwolves -5.5 (+100) - Over/Under (209.5)

Pick: Timberwolves -5.5 (+100)

The Dallas Mavericks and the Minnesota Timberwolves will meet here on Thursday night in the fifth game of their Western Conference Finals series. This will be the third game of the series at the Target Center in Minnesota and it is a must win game for the home team. As the Dallas Mavericks come into this game holding a three games to one lead over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Anthony Edwards was finally able to guide Minnesota to a win in game four and now they will need a second consecutive victory if they want to keep their season alive. Meanwhile, for Dallas a victory would send them to the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics.

The Dallas Mavericks will look to bounce back after losing their first game of this series in game four at home. Dallas has been playing incredible basketball throughout the last couple of weeks, and now they are one victory away from advancing to the NBA finals for the first time since 2011. It would be a monumental victory for the franchise, as they win their title in franchise history. Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving have been playing the last four games of this series and they look to replicate those performances here in game five. Despite the fact that Luka Dončić is currently listed as a gametime decision all signs point towards him playing in this game on Thursday night against Minnesota. 

As Dallas looks to take the final step and crown themselves Western Conference champions with another huge victory over the Timberwolves on the road. You can argue that it was a rough shooting night for Luka Dončić in game four but he still put up 28 points, but where Dallas will improve is Kyrie Irving scoring more than 16 points if they want to be successful here on Thursday night. If Kyrie Irving can find the form that led Dallas to victory throughout the first three games and the Mavericks will certainly book a trip to the NBA finals here in this one.

Anthony Edwards and company were finally able to get things going in the fourth game of the series at home against the Dallas Mavericks. Now they will need to replicate that performance once again on Thursday and an additional two times in this series if they are successful here in game five as well. Otherwise their season will come a premature end despite being the favorites in this series against the Mavericks. After a rough couple of performances to open up the series, Anthony Edwards was finally able to get things going and game number four and he will look to put up similar numbers here in game five at home where he has been successful all season. 

Edwards put up 29 points and came one assist away from recording a triple double in their game four victory. Meanwhile, Rudy Gobert added a double double from Minnesota and they will both look to replicate those performances here on Thursday evening. If both of them can put up similar numbers in this game against the Dallas Mavericks, then Minnesota has an opportunity to grab their second consecutive win of the series. Minnesota can continue to build momentum. It is very possible that they can force game seven at home after winning three consecutive games against the Dallas Mavericks. This game should add yet another close and competitive chapter in this series here on Thursday night, in what should be one of the best playoff games of the season.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Minnesota is 33-15 at home 

- Minnesota is 41-23 after a win

- Dallas is 10-14 as a road underdog 

Despite being winless at home throughout two opportunities in this series, I look for Minnesota to breakthrough and grab the victory here in game five. Minnesota has built some momentum with their much-needed game for victory on the road in Dallas and I look for them to take a second consecutive game here in this one as well. As I look for Anthony Edwards to have another stellar performance on Thursday night to lead his team to a must win victory to keep their season alive for at least a couple more days. Not only do I look for the Minnesota Timberwolves victory of the Dallas Mavericks here for Minnesota to cover the spread as well.
