LINE MOVEMENT

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.

KEY INJURIES

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.

BETTING STRATEGY

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.
