Another Western Conference tilt in the NBA will be played on Wednesday, January 31, so make sure to check out the Mavericks vs Timberwolves Player Prop Bets. The Dallas Mavericks visit Minneapolis without Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, while the Minnesota Timberwolves hope to avoid the third home loss in a row and stay atop the WC.

Mavericks vs Timberwolves Player Prop Bets – Anthony Edwards Over 2.5 Threes Made (-134)

Anthony Edwards leads Minnesota in points (25.9), steals (1.2), and minutes per game (35.0) this season. He has been pretty efficient on offense lately, scoring 24+ points in eight of the last ten outings. Edwards is averaging 2.5 triples per contest, but he did make 3+ three-pointers in each of the previous four games.

What’s more important, he scored for fun in the past two meetings with the Mavs. Edwards combined for 80 points and nine triples in those two, and considering he faces Tim Hardaway Jr, a poor defender, in a direct matchup, I believe Anthony will destroy Dallas once again.

Edwards likes to play against the Mavericks; he averages 25.7 ppg in 11 career games against them. Dallas allows 24.0 ppg and 3.8 threes per game to the opposing shooting guards. Don’t be surprised if Edwards makes three shots from beyond the arc already in the first half.

Karl-Anthony Towns To Record a Double-Double (+140)

For the second pick in the Mavericks vs Timberwolves Player Prop Bets, I have another Timberwolf. Karl-Anthony Towns is not averaging a double-double per game for the third consecutive season but is still a dangerous offensive player. This year, KAT averages 22.6 ppg and 8.7 rpg, and he did register a double-double in three of the previous six games.

Towns took 15+ shots in each of the past five showings, so I am sure he will score 20+ here. For the rebounds, he has a favorable matchup against Grant Williams, who is 6′ 6″ opposite Towns’ height of 7′ 0″. Although KAT averages a career-low 1.4 offensive rebounds per game, the fact he is taller than any of the Mavs’ active players will help him get some offensive boards.

Towns averaged 22.5 ppg and 11.2 rpg in 24 career games against the Mavericks. Dallas allows 26.5 ppg and 10.5 rpg to the opposing power forwards. In three H2Hs this season, KAT registered 32 boards in total.
