Portland Trail Blazers vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Portland Trail Blazers are banged up, they're losing games left and right, and they're fresh off a game last night where they lost by 62 points. The Trail Blazers aren't a team anybody should be excited to get behind. The Minnesota Timberwolves have been shay these last few weeks, but they're 14-2 SU at home, and they have the rest advantage here. There's no reason why the Timberwolves shouldn't blow the doors off. I'll lay the massive number.
