Timberwolves vs. Celtics Prediction
Will the Timberwolves pull off the upset tonight in Boston when they take on the Celtics at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Celtics are 6-point home favorites versus the Timberwolves while the over/under currently sits at 210.5 points.
Minnesota enters play tonight having won seven of its last 10 games and is 9-1 against the spread during that span. The Timberwolves are also 33-33 against the spread on the season and just 14-16 against the number on the road this year.
Boston is just 5-5 both on the hardwood and at the betting window in its last 10 games. While the Celtics won a 34-31 ATS record on the season, they have failed to cover in 18 of their 31 home games on the year.
OUR PREDICTION: The Timberwovles are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games in Boston but it's hard to bet against a team that is red-hot at the betting window right now. Minnesota has cashed in five of its last six road games, is 17-4 against the number in its last 21 games versus an opponent with a winning record and is 7-1 against the spread in its last eight games coming off an ATS win. The Celtics, meanwhile, have failed to cover in six of their last eight home games and are just 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games playing on two days of rest.
