Timberwolves vs. Thunder Free Pick
In what should turn into a blowout, the Thunder will host the Timberwolves tonight at 8:00PM ET.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv currently list Oklahoma City as a 12.5-point favorite over Minnesota while the over/under is sitting at 225.5 points. The Timberwolves enter play having lost seven of their last 10 games while the Thunder are just 4-6 over their last 10 contests.
But despite their struggles of late, the Thunder have reeled off 10 straight victories in this series and the Timberwolves play little to no defense. Minnesota's defensive efficiency rating is 107.3, which is the third-worst in the NBA. Good luck trying to contain a red-hot Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook without playing defense.
The home team has covered in four of the last five meetings between these two teams while the Timberwolves are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven trips to OKC. While Minnesota is just 1-4 at the betting window in its last five games versus Western Conference foes, Oklahoma City has covered the spread in five of its last six games versus a team with a losing record.
