NBA Tips – Sunday, May 2.

DALLAS MAVERICKS vs WASHINGTON WIZARDS
Wizards (+6.5)

The Wizards soar into this fixture with a 9-1 record across their last ten, forcing their way into the play-in bracket.

Alternatively, the Mavs are 6-4 over the same trip and are still struggling to find their best rotation.

The Mavs have been largely disappointing in Dallas this season, going 16-14, while covering the points line a feeble eight of 22 games when starting as the home favourite.

Meanwhile, Washington has covered the point spread in 13 of the 24 games as the away underdog.

A now fit Russ has take this side to another level, with Beale adding 30 points on a nightly basis I just can’t see the Wiz giving up a 6.5 point start.

MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES VS NEW ORLEANS PELICANS
Timberwolves (+3.5) $1.90

To sides full of talent, yet both lacking conviction take to the court tonight, as the Timberwolves look to extend their winning streak to five games at the expense of the Pels.

The Pelicans head into this matchup as 3.5 point favourites, though form suggests the away team might have they work cut out for themselves here.

Minnesota’s young trio of Edwards, Towns and DLo are starting to find their groove, picking up six wins across their last eight games! In contrast to the 18 games required to pick up their previous six victories.

NOLA haven’t dealt well with the favouritism tag this season, covering the line a pathetic 12 of 33 games against lessor opponents.

The Wolves have officially been eliminated from playoff contention, as a result they a playing with a renewed sense of freedom and should find the going easy against an uptight Pels unit here.
