Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who Public Bettors Like: Minnesota. As of this writing, the Timberwolves are receiving nearly 70% of the betting tickets to cover the spread.

Injury Report: Karl-Anthony Towns (head) is probable to play tonight for the Timberwolves but Nemanja Bjelica (foot) has been ruled out. For Memphis, Marc Gasol is probable with a foot injury but Mike Conley continues to be held out with an Achilles injury. Chandler Parsons (knee) is also out, while Brandan Wright (groin) is questionable.

OUR PREDICTION: The Grizzlies have truly been a horrible play at the betting window of late. They're 3-12-1 against the spread in their last 16 games overall, they're winless at 0-8 against the number in their last eight home games, and are 0-6-1 at the betting window in their last seven Western Conference tilts. The Grizzlies have also failed to cover the spread in seven of their last seven games playing on one day of rest.

On the other side, the Timberwolves are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games, are 5-0-1 against the number in their last six games versus Western Conference foes, and are 5-0 ATS in their last five games versus Southwest opponents.
