Home team cashing in Wizards, T-Wolves
The Timberwolves will look to slow down the Wizards tonight as a slight home underdog when the two teams clash at 8:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Minnesota is a 3.5-point home underdog versus Washington while the over/under has gone from 219.5 down to 220. The Wizards have won seven of their last 10 games and have covered the spread in six of their last 10, while the Timberwolves are 5-5 straight up and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 contests.
With Kevin Garnett (knee, leg) battling injuries and fellow veteran Tayshaun Prince falling out of the starting lineup, the young players for Minnesota need to emerge. It's time for Karl-Anthony Towns, Zach LaVine and Tyus Jones to breathe some life into the Timberwolves down the stretch and despite this team's issues with consistency, we like Minnesota to cover tonight as a home dog.
The home team has fared well in this matchup, covering in 17 of the last 22 meetings between these two teams. And while the Wizards have failed to cover in seven of their last 10 games coming off a win, the Timberwolves are 4-1 against the number in their last five games following a loss.
