Who the Public Likes: Minnesota. As of Saturday morning, 68 percent of public bets have sided with the T-Wolves.

Injury Report: Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet has missed the last two games with a knee contusion and is questionable tonight. For the Timberwolves, Justin Patton is recovering from offseason foot surgery and is out indefinitely.

Who the Trends Like: Toronto is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Minnesota. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Minnesota nd 5-0 in the last five meetings overall.

Who We Like: Toronto is on the second end of a back-to-back after holding on for an 86-83 home win over the Spurs last night. The Timberwolves lost their last two on the road, but are 18-6 straight up at home this season. The Raptors will likely have some fatigue here as the Spurs provided a tough matchup last night. A turnaround at another strong team in Minnesota is probably too much to handle. Expect big nights out of Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler as the T-Wolves get the job done.
