The Minnesota Timberwolves are likely going to play their key players as they fight for seeding. The San Antonio Spurs don't cover numbers despite being big underdogs nightly, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 7.4 points while not playing a lick of defense. Massive line, but backing the Spurs isn't an option. Give me the Timberwolves and the chalk.
