You guys know by now that I've been high on the Minnesota Timberwolves from the start, and they continue to win under the radar, but I don't love them in the favorite role, and I'm not thrilled to lay points with Edwards questionable. The Portland Trail Blazers are banged up, but they play their best ball by far at home, and they've been a different team with the return of CJ. The Trail Blazers have won six of their last eight games, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 3.2 points. The value here seems to be with the home dog. Give me the Trail Blazers.
