Spread: Washington Wizards -0.5
Washington Wizards have a 25-37 record (27-35 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the East. They have lost five of their last six matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Celtics with a 96-107 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 25.8 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.4 dimes per game. He is followed by John Wall with 20.7 ppg and a team high 8.7 dimes per game but he will miss the rest of the season with an injury.
Minnesota Timberwolves have a 29-33 record (32-30 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the West. They have lost three of their last four matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Pacers with a 115-122 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Karl-Anthony Towns with 23.9 ppg, adding a team high 12.4 boards per game. He is followed by Derrick Rose with 18.2 ppg and 4.5 dimes per game.
In their two meetings last season each team won once on the road (Wizards by 3 points and Timberwolves by 5). Wizards have a 16-12 home record, while the Wolves are 9-23 on the road. Wizards are better offensively, scoring 113.7 ppg to Wolves’ 112.4, while Wolves are better defensively, allowing 112.4 ppg to Wizards’ 116.8. Wizards have a better field goal percentage (46.9% to 45.4%), while Timberwolves have a better 3-point percentage (35.2% to 34.4%). Wolves are better in turnovers committed (12.7 to 14) and in boards grabbed (45.2 to 41.2), while Wizards are better in dimes made (26.6 to 24.5). Wizards are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -0.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the win today.
