Wizards have a 38-29 record (32-34-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the 5th place of the East. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Heat with a 102-129 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 23.2 ppg, adding 4.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game. He is followed by John Wall with 19.4 ppg and a team high 9.3 assists per game but he is out with an injury.
Timberwolves have a 39-29 record (31-35-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the 6th place of the West. In their last game they snapped a three-game losing streak by winning at home against the Warriors with a 109-103 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Jimmy Butler with 22.2 ppg, adding 5.4 rpg and 5 assists but he is out with an injury. He is followed by Karl-Anthony Towns with 20.5 ppg and a team high 12.2 rebounds per game, while Andrew Wiggins adds 17.9 ppg.
In their previous meeting earlier this season, Wizards won on the road with an 89-92 score. Wizards are 19-12 at home so far this season, while Timberwolves are 13-21 on the road. Wolves are better offensively, scoring 109.7 ppg to Wizards’ 107.2, while Wizards are better defensively, allowing 105.8 ppg to Wolves’ 107.1. Wolves have a better field goal percentage, shooting with 47.89% to Wizards’ 46.73%, while Wizards have a better 3-point percentage, shooting with 37.25% to Wolves’ 35.59%. Wizards are also better in rebounding, grabbing 43 to Wolves’ 42 and in assists made, with 24.7 to Wolves’ 22.7. Both teams will be missing their star players today so expect a close game that the home court advantage will be a major factor. Vegas odds give the Wizards a -4 spread and expect them to beat those odds for the home victory today.
