The Minnesota Timberwolves are the better team and will have the edge at home, but they're a dumb team that has issues finishing games, and I'm not laying big chalk with them regardless of opponent. I don't want to back the Detroit Pistons as much as the next guy, but I'm not laying big chalk with the Timberwolves, especially when they win at home by an average of just 0.2 points. It's Pistons or pass for me.
