Celtics vs. Timberwolves Free Pick

Boston Celtics vs. Minnesota Timberwolves – 2/22/16 NBA Picks and Predictions

The Boston Celtics are a road favorite against the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight at 8PM ET. Will Boston be able to win by a sizable margin?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Celtics are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -5 points against the Timberwolves. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 217 points.

Boston is 33-24 on the season, 15-14 on the road and 32-24-1 against the spread. Minnesota is 17-39 overall, 9-20 at home and 24-31-1 against the spread. The home team has won and covered the spread in seven straight in this series, including the lone meeting this season, a 113-99 win for the Celtics. For what it’s worth, the public likes the Celtics to cover against tonight, as they are getting 71 percent of the wagers.

It’s easy to see why the public likes Boston, mostly because the Timberwolves haven’t been good at home. Minnesota is just 9-19-1 against the spread on its home floor, including an 8-point loss at home to the Knicks on Saturday. Boston has dropped two of its last three on the road, but is still above .500 covering as an away team (16-13). The loss of Kelly Olynyk could cause some problems on the defense end, but the Boston backcourt should be able to shoulder the load on offense and put up points on a Minnesota D that allows nearly 105 points per game.
