Against The Spread Pick
Karl-Anthony Towns returned to the Timberwolves on Friday night but it wouldn’t be shocking to see him miss this game being the second night of a back to back. The Wolves seemed to give everything they could on Friday night, but a couple of late turnovers led them to a loss. Emotionally the loss probably took a lot out of them, and it could have a big impact on them in this game. The Raptors put up 140 points on Friday night and they should have a lot of success against a Timberwolves defense that hasn’t been good. The Wolves are 3-11 against the spread in their last 14 home games. Look for the Wolves to have no answer for the Raptors offense, and that will be the difference. Back the Raptors.
Over Under Pick
The Raptors are coming off a game where they put up 140 points, and the Wolves defense is giving up 116.2 points per game over the last five. This should be an up-tempo game with very little defense being played especially by the Wolves. Two of the last three games for each of these teams went over the total. Back the over to cash with ease.
