The Timberwolves continue to fight against the tide, as our Basketball tipster name his best picks for Game 5 of the NBA Western Conference Finals

It’s crunch time in the Western Conference Finals, as the Dallas Mavericks are one win away from booking their place in the NBA Finals.

Dallas shot into a 3-0 series lead, but they gave Game 4 to the Timberwolves late on last time out – so the series continues for now.

Our Basketball tipster has looked through the odds, picking out his best bets for this evening’s matchup.

Here are the best bets for Game 5 of the NBA Western Conference Finals between the Mavericks and the Timberwolves.

MINNESOTA’S CLIMBING THE MOUNTAIN

There’s no doubt about that the Timberwolves still have a lot to do if they are to mount a miraculous comeback in this series. But winning Game 5 could well help them on their way.

The Mavericks succumbed to defeat late on in Game 4, as the Timberwolves recorded a 105-100 win in Dallas last time out.

The Mavs were missing rookie centre Dereck Lively II a few nights back, which didn’t help them defensively at all. He is questionable currently, so he if he misses time again, the game could swing in the Timberwolves’ favour.

Karl-Anthony Towns looks to have hit his stride late on in this series, so he could prove to be dangerous for Dallas alongside his star teammate Anthony Edwards.

Take Minnesota to cover the spread in this matchup.

TIP: Minnesota Timberwolves -4.5 (-112, FanDuel)

TOWNS TURNING UP

Remaining on Karl-Anthony Towns, the Minnesota recruit could prove to be interesting in the points total category.

Towns has not been unproductive in the series so far, but he did prove to be wasteful in the first three games.

Game 4 showed his capabilities, as he scored nine of his thirteen field attempts – recording 25 points in total.

He could well get more game time here and surpass his total of 20.5 points in this contest.

Take Towns’ points over here.

TIP: Karl-Anthony Towns Over 20.5 Points (-113, FanDuel)
