The Timberwolves are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 14-29 ATS in their last 43 games overall. The Warriors are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 Wednesday games. The over is 5-2 in Timberwolves last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 4-1 in Warriors last 5 overall. The Timberwolves are 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are a tough team to get behind, as they don't cover numbers despite getting free points nightly, and they're losing on the road this season by an average of 16 points. The Golden State Warriors have proven they can beat up on lesser competition, and they just smoked the Timberwolves a couple of days ago. Thick line, but I have no choice but to lay it with the Warriors.
