The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-0-1 in Clippers last 5 road games. The over is 41-18 in Timberwolves last 59 overall. The Clippers are 15-6-1 ATS in the last 22 meetings in Minnesota and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers in the underdog role is attractive when you consider they have Powell and PG13 back in the mix, but Luke Kennard and Nicolas Batum are both questionable, which is a concern. The Minnesota Timberwolves are as healthy as they've been in quite some time, and they've been one of the better home teams in the league, where they win by an average of five points. Also, the Timberwolves win in the favorite role by an average of 9.3 points. The Timberwolves play with a certain edge, and it feels like they'd thrive in a big game at home, something they haven't had much over the last decade. I'll lay the bucket.
