Bet on Timberwolves vs. Pelicans

Minnesota and New Orleans both have matchup-proof interior players, it just so happens the Pelicans have two such dominant presences. But Towns has plenty of help around him and the additions of Butler plus Teague have turned the Timberwolves into a legitimate playoff contender. Covering the spread here against a New Orleans team that can quite often look shaky would be a nice statement on the road.
