NBA Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Timberwolves are just 6-13 against the spread in their last 19 Friday games and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games when playing on 3 or more days of rest.

New York

The Knicks are just 3-14 against the spread in their last 17 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven against a team with a losing record.

Prediction:

Neither team has much at stake here, but the Timberwolves still could make something of their season if they can start to heat up. New York is coming off a win, but the Knicks were awful for nearly a month and are clearly trying to tank for Zion Williamson. Minnesota should be able to take advantage of that tonight. Even though the T’Wolves have been tough to trust on the road, they haven’t been as hard to trust as the Knicks.

NBA Prediction: Minnesota Timberwolves -6
