Who Public Bettors Like: Minnesota. As of this writing, the majority of public bettors have put their money on the Timberwolves to cover the spread.

Injury Report: Jimmy Butler (finger) is probable to play tonight for the Timberwolves but Nemanja Bjelica (foot) is questionable. On the other side, Blake Griffin remains out with a knee injury while Danilo Gallinari is questionable with a glute injury. Patrick Beverley (knee) is out for the year and Milos Teodosic is out for this game with a foot injury.

Who We Like: Minnesota. The Timberwolves are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games in Los Angeles while the road team is 25-8-1 at the betting window in the last 34 meetings between these two teams. Minnesota is also 5-2-1 against the spread in its last eight Western Conference games.

On the other side, the Clippers have failed to cover the spread in 11 of their last 15 games overall and are 3-8 against the number in their last 11 games coming off a loss. They're also just 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games, are winless at the betting window at 0-4  in their last four games playing on two days of rest, and are a brutal 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest.
