Timberwolves vs. Raptors Pick
Who Oddsmakers Like: Toronto. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Raptors are a 6.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 218 points. The spread and over-under have remained stead from where they opened.
Who the Public Likes: Toronto. As of Tuesday morning, 67 percent of public bets have come in on the Raptors.
Injury Report: Timberwolves center Justin Patton is out indefinitely after undergoing offseason foot surgery. The Raptors have no injuries to report.
Who the Trends Like: Minnesota is 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Toronto and 7-19 ATS in the last 26 meetings overall. The over is 6-0 in the last seven meetings.
Who We Like: I'll say it once again, games between two very strong teams at this point of the season are a welcomed sight when the injury report is clean. All the stars are in play here and both teams have high-powered offensive attacks. Both teams have played more overs than unders this season. Minnesota is playing on a back-to-back after being upset 105-100 at Atlanta last night. While I expect the T-Wolves' offense to bounce back strong, there might be some fatigue on the defensive end which will help take this game over the projected total. Minnesota won the last meeting by a count of 115-109 on its home court earlier this month.
