Timberwolves vs. Hawks Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Timberwolves cover as favorites at Hawks? 1/29/18

Are the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves the right choice for bettors tonight at the Atlanta Hawks? Game time is 7:30PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Minnesota. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Timberwolves are a 6-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 215 points. Minnesota opened as a 6.5-point fave, while the total has climbed from 213.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Minnesota. As of Monday morning, 78 percent of public bets have been placed on the Timberwolves.

Injury Report: Minnesota center Justin Patton is recovering from offseason foot surgery and is out indefinitely. For the Hawks, forward DeAndre Bembry has a groin strain and is out until mid-February.

Who the Trends Like: Minnesota is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings overall and 7-1-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Atlanta. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Atlanta.

Who We Like: The Timberwolves are only 12-14 straight up on the road this season, while the Hawks are 10-15 at home. Minnesota had lost four of its previous six including the last two, but Jimmy Butler returned to the lineup last game after missing four games with a sore knee and it led to a 111-97 home victory over the Nets. Atlanta has lost three in a row by double digits, two of which were at home. I don't like the Hawks' chances here against a squad that is once again at full strength.
