Bet on Timberwolves vs. Hornets

Minnesota will be coming in a little salty after a porous fourth quarter cost it a win at home over Detroit. The T-Wolves are the better team here and even though they are playing on a back-to-back, this is a situation where they can take advantage of a team that ended a six-game losing streak only by defeating a team struggling even worse in LA.
