Spread: Minnesota Timberwolves -7
Minnesota Timberwolves have a 30-35 record (33-32 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Lakers in the 10th place of the West. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Pistons with a 114-131 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Karl-Anthony Towns with 24.2 ppg, adding a team high 12.2 boards per game. He is followed by Derrick Rose with 18 ppg and 4.4 dimes per game.
Washington Wizards have a 27-38 record (29-36 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the East. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Hornets with a 111-112 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 25.6 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.5 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.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Wizards won at home with a 135-121 score. Wolves have a 21-10 home record, while the Wizards are 8-25 on the road. Wizards are better offensively, scoring 114.3 ppg to Wolves’ 112.9, while Wolves are better defensively, allowing 113.2 ppg to Wizards’ 117. Wizards have a better field goal percentage (47% to 45.6%), while Timberwolves have a better 3-point percentage (35.2% to 34.4%). Wolves are better in turnovers committed (12.6 to 13.8) and in boards grabbed (45.2 to 41.4), while Wizards are better in dimes made (26.7 to 24.6). Wolves are the absolute favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -7 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy win.
