Timberwolves vs. Wizards Prediction
Will the Minnesota Timberwolves pull off a small upset tonight when they visit the Washington Wizards at 7:00 p.m. ET?
Tuesday, March 13, 2018
TV: NBA TV, 7:00 p.m. ET
The Wizards opened as 4-point home favorites but the line dropped to 3.5 at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it hit the board at 216 but has climbed to 217.5.
WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE
As of Tuesday afternoon, 65% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Timberwolves to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 61% of betting tickets are on the over.
Jimmy Butler (knee) remains out for the Timberwolves and John Wall (knee) remains out for the Wizards.
Both of these teams are struggling at the betting window so I see value in taking the points. The Wizards are 4-9-1 against the spread in their last 14 home games, are 1-3-1 against the number in their last five games overall, and are 2-7-1 at the betting window in their last 10 home games when facing an opponent with a losing road record.
