T'Wolves vs. Spurs Pick

NBA Predictions: Minnesota Timberwolves vs. San Antonio Spurs 3/4/17

After a nice road win last night, will the San Antonio Spurs be able to recover quickly and beat the Minnesota Timberwolves handily tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Spurs are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -8 points against the Timberwolves. The over/under total for the game is listed at 205 points. The Spurs have won nine straight over Minnesota, including two meetings this season. San Antonio is 7-2 against the spread in the nine meetings.

San Antonio is coming off a 101-98 OT win at New Orleans last night for its sixth straight victory. The Spurs are now 47-13 on the season and 33-26-1 against the spread. They are one of the top defensive teams in the league, allowing just 98.3 points per game overall and only 97.4 at home. In San Antonio, the Spurs are putting up 106.9 points per game on offense. Kawhi Leonard is leading the team with 25.9 points and 5.9 rebounds per game while LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 17.3 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest.

Minnesota is coming off a 107-80 win at Utah. The T’Wolves have won four of their last five, including three of their last four on the road. Minnesota is 25-36 overall this season and 29-32 against the spread after covering in five straight games. The team puts up 105.1 points per game on offense while allowing 105.2 on defense. When on the road, the offense averages 103.8 on offense while giving up 107.1 on defense. Karl-Anthony Towns is leading the team with 24 points and 12.2 rebounds per game while Andrew Wiggins is adding 23.4 points per game.

Bet on Timberwolves vs. Spurs

It’s hard to pick against the Spurs at home, but they have failed to cover in their last two games and this is the third game in four days for San Antonio. Minnesota is coming off a 27-point win at Utah back on Wednesday, so it should be fresh and playing with confidence. The T’Wolves have covered over the Jazz, Rockets and Mavericks over the last few weeks and I like them to make things competitive with a tired Spurs team tonight.
