Timberwolves plus 16 at Warriors

The Warriors got back to winning by burying Portland, 136-111, on Sunday after suffering their first home loss of the season this past Sunday to the Celtics. The Warriors need to go 4-1 in their final five games to set the record for most wins in a season. Those games will be against the Spurs and Grizzlies. This is the rest stop game for Golden State. The Warriors are 1-6 ATS the past seven times facing a foe with a winning percentage below .400.

The Timberwolves have lost three in a row, but are at their best in these type of spots. Minnesota is 12-3 ATS the past 15 times playing opponents with a winning record. They have covered five of their last seven road games, including beating Oklahoma, Washington and Memphis straight-up during this span.

Minnesota hung tough at home against Golden State in the team’s last meeting on March 21. The Warriors won, 109-104, as 12.5-point favorites. It was the fourth time in the last five meeting between the two teams that the Timberwolves covered.

Certainly the Warriors are capable of blowing out any team – especially at home – but the Timberwolves have a lot of young talent, should be motivated and this isn’t the most intense spot for Golden State. Look for the Timberwolves to hang within this large number.
