We have three selections for Friday’s night NBA Western Conference Finals matchup between the Mavericks and the Timberwolves

After suffering defeat in Game 1, the Timberwolves find themselves on the back foot in the Western Conference Finals.

The Mavericks took Game 1 on the road – and they will be hoping to take an unexpected 2-0 lead back to Dallas.

Our basketball expert has looked through the markets, picking out a handful of tips that could be worth backing ahead of Friday’s game.

Here are the Best Best for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals between Dallas and Minnesota.

EDWARDS EATS IT UP

Game 1 proved to be a disappointing evening for Anthony Edwards in terms of scoring, as he only managed to put 19 points – one of his lowest scoring returns of the playoffs this season.

However, the Conference Finals are new territory for the Timberwolves star – and he may have just needed the game to get into the swing of things.

Edwards has proven to be a problem for the Mavs in the past as he has put up points totals of 32, 36 and 44 – and that’s only across his last five meetings with the Texas-based franchise.

With Minnesota needing to tie up the series before hitting the road for Game 3, Edwards could put up a show on here.

Take Edwards to surpass his points total – and even a small stake on him being the top points scorer in this matchup.

TIP: Anthony Edwards Over 26.5 Points (-115, FanDuel)

TIP: Anthony Edwards Top Points Scorer (+180, FanDuel)

TOWNS FROM DOWNTOWN

After only scoring two of his nine three-point attempts in Game 1, Karl-Anthony Towns could clean up his long-distance shooting for Game 2.

On his day, Towns can be dangerous from downtown – and he has made an average of 5 three attempts per game throughout the postseason.

His nine attempts against the Mavericks last time was his highest single-game total in the playoffs this campaign – and he could well see those similar numbers here.

Towns has scored at least three or more three-points in two of his last three starts against Dallas – so he could well be trusted to hit that total once again here.

His price is bouncing around the +115 mark for three 3PM, so that could prove to be good value here.

TIP: Karl-Anthony Towns Over 2.5 Threes Made (+116, FanDuel)
