Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Milwaukee. As of Thursday afternoon, 62 percent of public bettors are sided with the Bucks.

Injury Report: Minnesota will be without point guard Jeff Teague indefinitely after he suffered a knee injury Wednesday night. Milwaukee veteran Jason Terry is dealing with a left calf strain and his availability is questionable. Jabari Parker is still recovering from a torn ACL and will be out until approximately mid-February. Mirza Teletovic is also out indefinitely with a knee injury.

Who the Trends Like: Minnesota is 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings. The under is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 7-0-1 in the last seven Milwaukee home games.

Who We Like: The Timberwolves might be on a back-to-back, but we can't discount the fact they are gelling and playing fantastic basketball right now. Their game Wednesday did go to overtime, a 128-125 home win over Denver. So there is a tired legs factor, but I still like Minnesota here. Milwaukee has stuggled defensively and will have no answer inside for Karl-Anthony Towns unless they put Giannis Antetokounmpo on him which is unlikely. Tyus Jones will fill in for Teague and he's been solid when pressed into duty this season. Expect Towns and Jimmy Butler to have strong games and at least cover the spread for Minnesota if not pull off a straight up victory.
