Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 22 points and 4.3 assists while Malik Beasley is averaging 20.5 points and 2.5 assists.

The Clippers are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 road games. The Timberwolves are 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 home games and 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in Timberwolves last 7 overall. The Clippers are 13-5-1 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Minnesota and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers have been road covering machines dating back to last season, and they enter this contest shooting 49.2 percent from the field and 44 percent from three in their last five games. The Minnesota Timberwolves have had covering success lately, but I'm not sure how much you trust them against top tier teams, especially when they lose as an underdog by an average of 9.3 points. For me, it's Clippers and the chalk or pass.
