Timberwolves vs. Thunder Pick

Timberwolves vs. Thunder NBA Predictions Against The Spread 12/1/17

Will the Oklahoma City Thunder get out of their funk tonight when they play host to the Minnesota Timberwolves at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Thunder is favored at home, as OKC is getting odds of -5 points against the Timberwolves. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 210.5 points. Minnesota has won two straight meetings with the Thunder, both this season. The T’Wolves covered the spread in both of those games. Tonight’s game takes place from Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and will air live on NBA TV.

OKC is coming off a 121-108 loss at Orlando on Wednesday for their third straight loss and fifth defeat in six games. OKC is 8-12 overall, 6-3 at home and 8-12 against the spread. The Thunder are scoring 102.3 points per game this season while allowing 99.2 per game. OKC is being led by last season’s MVP, Russell Westbrook. He is averaging 22.4 points, 92. Rebounds and 9.5 assists per game this season. Paul Georgia is adding 20.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.

Minnesota is coming off a 120-102 win at New Orleans on Wednesday, but they have alternated wins and losses in their last six games. Minnesota is now 13-9 on the season, 6-5 on the road and 9-11-2 against the spread. The T’Wolves are putting up 107.8 points per game this season while allowing 107.2 per game. Karl-Anthony Towns is leading the team with 20.4 points and 11.7 rebounds per game while Andrew Wiggins is adding 19 points and 4.1 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Timberwolves vs. Thunder

The Thunder added Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in the offseason, but the team still hasn’t found its stride yet. They are just 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 conference games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games when playing on 1 day of rest. Minnesota is 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and I think they have the guns to keep up the scoring with OKC. The public betting is siding with OKC at home, but I like the Timberwolves to cover.
