Two Western conference teams coming off opposite outcomes in their latest matchups are clashing tonight, when the Minnesota Timberwolves (25-30), who are struggling having won only once in their last 7 games, are hosting the Los Angeles Clippers (31-26), who on the other hand are looking to turn their latest victory into a streak.
Date/Time: 02-11-2019, 20:00 EDT
Spread: Minnesota Timberwolves -4.5
Minnesota Timberwolves have a 25-30 record (27-28 against the spread) so far this season are currently sit in the 12th place of the West. They have lost six of their last seven matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Pelicans with a 117-122 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Karl-Anthony Towns with 23.1 ppg, adding a team high 12.1 boards per game. He is followed by Derrick Rose with 18.3 ppg and 4.7 dimes per game.
Los Angeles Clippers have a 31-26 record (31-26 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 8th place of the West. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Celtics with a 123-112 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Lou Williams with 19.2 ppg off the bench, while Danilo Gallinari follows with 18.8 ppg and 6 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Clippers won at home with a 120-109 score. Wolves have a 17-10 home record, while the Clippers are 16-14 on the road. Clippers are better offensively, scoring 113.8 ppg to Wolves’ 111.4, while Wolves are better defensively, allowing 111.6 ppg to Clippers’ 113.6 ppg. Clippers have better percentages both in field goals (46.9% to 44.9%) and in 3-pointers (38.6% to 35%). Wolves are better in dimes made (24.4 to 23.1) and in turnovers committed (12.7 to 13.9), while both teams are almost equal in boards grabbed (45.3 to 45.1). Wolves have been struggling lately and while Vegas odds give them a -4.5 spread, don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the Clippers in this one.
