Rockets vs. Timberwolves Prediction
Will the Timberwolves cover the spread as a home underdog tonight when they host the Warriors at 8:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Timberwolves are now 5-point home underdogs versus the Warriors after opening as a 6-point dog. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 216.5 points after hitting the board at 219.
Golden State has won six of its last 10 games but is an awful 2-8 at the betting window over that same 10-game stretch. The Warriors are also just 28-34 against the spread on the season, which includes a losing record of 14-19 ATS on the road.
Minnesota has also won six of its last 10 games but has the exact opposite record against the spread as Golden State, covering in eight of those 10 contests. The Timberwolves are still just 31-32 at the betting window on the season, however, which includes a 17-17 ATS record at home.
OUR PREDICTION: The Warriors have failed to cover in seven of their last eight games overall, are 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games and are winless at 0-6 against the number in their last six games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous game. The Warriors are also winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games versus the Timberwolves, who are a perfect 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games. Minnesota is also 4-0 against the number in its last four games coming off a victory.
