Los Angeles Clippers Fantasy Spin

Patrick Beverley (right groin) is out for Saturday against the Wolves. No surprise here with Beverley aggravating his groin on Wednesday night. There's a very good chance he is out until the All-Star break, so he may not be a must-hold guy for those needing live bodies right now. Coach Doc Rivers has said that he likes more ball-handlers out there, so Landry Shamet figures to benefit most as a low-ceiling option.

Minnesota Timberwolves Fantasy Spin

D'Angelo Russell will be a game-time call for Saturday against the Clippers. The Wolves are thrilled they landed Russell in a trade and were also able to get off Andrew Wiggins' contract. Russell was a PNR machine with the Nets last year, and he'll be running a ton of that with Karl-Anthony Towns. He's a winner from the trade deadline and should trend up.

NBA Prediction

The over has cashed in five straight meetings between these two teams when the game is played in Minnesota and in seven of the previous nine meetings overall. The over is also 7-3 in the Clippers’ last 10 road games versus a team with a losing home record and is 9-3-1 in their last 13 games coming off an ATS win. The over is 4-1 in the Timberwolves’ last five games when they’re listed as an underdog, is 5-2 in their last seven games when they’re a home dog and is 21-10 in their last 31 home games versus an opponent with a winning road record.
