The Timberwolves are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 5-0 in Timberwolves last 5 Wednesday games. The over is 5-1 in Pelicans last 6 overall. The Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New Orleans and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Minnesota Timberwolves show time and time again that they're not a good team, and losing to the Heat without Bam and Butler is just another red flag. The New Orleans Pelicans have Zion back in the mix, and they're one of the best home teams in the league, where they win by an average of 8.5 points. The line is reasonable. Give me the Pels and the chalk.
