Timberwolves vs. Warriors NBA Predictions Against the Spread 11/8/17

Can the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves keep it close Wednesday night when they play the Golden State Warriors on national TV? Game time is 10:30PM EST.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Warriors are an 8-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 228 points.

Minnesota comes into play with a 7-3 record, winning a fourth straight game via a 112-94 home win over the Hornets. Golden State has also won four in a row and is 8-3 after a 97-80 home triumph against the Heat. The Warriors went 3-1 straight up last season, but the Timberwolves were 3-0-1 ATS in the four meetings. The under went 3-1.

In the win versus Charlotte, Andrew Wiggins led a balanced scoring attack with 20 points. Jeff Teague accounted for 18 points and 12 assists. Karl-Anthony Towns had 16 points and nine rebounds. Gorgui Dieng and Jordan Crawford both had 15 points off the bench. After being tied through one quarter at 28-28, the T-Wolves outscored the Hornets 40-23 in the second quarter.

Golden State star forward Kevin Durant suffered a thigh contusion in the win over the Heat and will be held out of tonight's game. Durant managed to finish the contest and recorded a team-best 21 points to go with eight rebounds and six assists. Draymond Green had 18 points and nine boards. Steph Curry added 16 points, five rebounds and four assists. The Warriors outscored the Heat 28-16 in the second quarter to go up 50-37 at halftime.

Minnesota is 5-0-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The under is 20-7 in the last 27 meetings.

Bet on Timberwolves vs. Warriors

Durant being out is huge news for this game and Minnesota already has good recent history in playing the Warriors tough. Of course, anything is difficult at the Oracle but the Timberwolves are playing outstanding basketball right now and are in a good position to stay within the number and maybe even win in an upset if they fire on all cylinders. We'll keep it safe and bet on them to cover.
