NBA Betting Trends

Golden State

The Warriors are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games overall. Golden State is 6-20-1 ATS in its last 27 Tuesday games.

Minnesota

The Timberwolves are 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus the Pacific Division. Minnesota is 1-5 ATS in its last six games overall.

Prediction:

Golden State is seemingly going through the motions until the playoffs, although it would probably be best-served to worry about losing the Western Conference's number one seed as it's currently deadlocked with the Denver Nuggets. Minnesota is a much different team at home and Towns has seemed to have the Warriors' number over the years. I'm taking Minnesota to stay within the number as Golden State is also likely fatigued with a back-to-back plus travel.
