NBA Predictions: Will the Timberwolves keep it close at Warriors? 1/25/18

Are the Minnesota Timberwolves going to manage to keep it close tonight when they play at the Golden State Warriors? Game time is slated for 10:30PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Golden State. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Warriors are listed as an 11-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 228 points. Golden State opened as a 13-point fave, while the total has gone up from 227.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Minnesota. As of Thursday afternoon, 57 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Timberwolves.

Injury Report: Jimmy Butler has missed the last three games with a sore knee and is questionable tonight. Justin Patton is out indefinitely after offseason foot surgery. For the Warriors, Klay Thompson has a glute injury but is expected to play tonight. Patrick McCaw is questionable tonight with a lower back strain. Jordan Bell has inflammation in his ankle and will be evaluated in early February.

Who the Trends Like: Minnesota is 5-1-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and 4-1-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Golden State. The under is 21-7 in the last 28 meetinngs.

Who We Like: If Butler returns to the floor, I like the Timberwolves even more. As it stands, I like them regardless. The spread is going down for good reason. Karl-Anthony Towns has always played well against the Warriors and his usage rate increases if Butler is out. Andrew Wiggins has also played fantastic basketball the last few games with an increased role. With the T-wolves among the better teams in the Western Conferences, this is a true chance to show they can hang with the NBA's elite.
