Timberwolves vs. Clippers Prediction

NBA Predictions: Is the Timberwolves vs. Clippers Over a Good Bet? 1/22/18

Is the over in Monday night’s matchup between the Minnesota Timberwolves and L.A. Clippers a good bet? The two teams tip-off at 10:30 p.m. ET.

WHO ODDSMAKERS LIKE: Minnesota. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Timberwolves are 2-point road favorites to beat the Clippers, who opened as 3-point home underdogs. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 220 but was bet up to 221.5.

WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE: Minnesota. As of Monday afternoon, 59% of betting tickets and 69% of the money wagered online is on the Timberwolves to cover the spread. Meanwhile, 57% of the betting tickets and 68% of the money is on the under.

WHO WE LIKE: The over. With Jimmy Butler (knee) questionable for the Timberwolves and DeAndre Jordan, Austin Rivers and Danilo Gallinari all out for L.A., I see this being a poorly played defensive game. The over is 11-2 in the last 13 games between these two teams when the Clippers are the host and has cashed in 10 of the last 14 meetings between these two teams overall.

The over is also 9-4 in the Timberwolves’ last 13 road games versus a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600 and is 39-19-1 in their last 59 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

On the other side, the over is 12-3 in the Clippers’ last 15 games. The over is also 21-6 in their last 27 conference games, is 6-2 in their last eight games playing on one day of rest, and is 5-1 in their last six games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
