Grizzlies vs. Timberwolves Prediction
Is the betting total for Monday night’s NBA matchup between the Grizzlies and Timberwolves set too high?
Monday, March 26, 2018
TV: N/A, 8:00 p.m. ET
According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Timberwolves are 13.5-point home favorites to beat the Grizzlies, while the over/under currently sits at 215.5 points.
Minnesota opened as 14-point favorites but the line has dropped to 13.5 at the majority of online sportsbooks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 215.5 after also opening at that same number.
WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE
As of this writing, 67% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Timberwolves to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 87% of the betting tickets are on the under.
Mike Conley (heel) is out for the year, while Tyreke Evans (personal) is out and Chandler Parsons (knee) is questionable. On the other side, Jimmy Butler is (knee) is out for the Timberwolves and Derrick Rose (ankle) is questionable.
The under is a perfect 7-0 in the Grizzlies’ last seven games against Western Conference opponents and is 8-3 in their last 11 games when facing an opponent with a winning record. The under has also cashed in eight of the Timberwolves’ last nine games when facing an opponent with a losing record. Granted, the over has been a solid wager of late in this series and in Minnesota games, but I’m willing to bet both of these teams sleepwalk through the game tonight.
