Who the Public Likes: Minnesota. As of Sunday afternoon, 65 percent of public bets have come in on the Timberwolves.

Injury Report: Trail Blazers small forward Evan Turner missed the last game with an illness and is questionable tonight. CJ Wilcox is rehabbing a knee injury and it is unknown when he will return. For Minnesota, Justin Patton is out indefinitely after offseason foot surgery.

Who the Trends Like: Portland is 21-6 ATS in the last 27 meetings in Minnesota and 36-14-1 ATS in the last 51 meetings overall. The over is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in Minnesota. 

Who We Like: With Portland's strong history in this series, the spread seems a bit high. The Trail Blazers play tremendous defense and are healthy again after a stretch where star point guard Damian Lillard was missing games. Portland has lost two in a row, but kept it relatively close at Houston and New Orleans. While Minnesota has won four in a row, I think the Blazers match up well enough to cover this spread.
