Los Angeles Clippers vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been one of the best home teams in the league with a 15-2 SU record, but this line has shifted a bit, and I'm assuming it has to do with Anthony Edwards knee. Also, the Timberwolves have been shaky these last couple of weeks, as the defense has taken a step back and the offense is turning the ball over a ton. The Los Angeles Clippers are the hottest team in the league, and not a team I'm excited to step in front of. Cheap line, I'll ride the hot hand and side with the Clippers.
