The Portland Trail Blazers just beat the Timberwolves on Saturday, and they're not winning by an average of 5 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field in the favorite role. The Minnesota Timberwolves have been in a bit of a funk, and they're going to have a hard time keeping up most nights until Karl-Anthony Towns returns. The line is reasonable. Give me the Trail Blazers and the chalk.
