Minnesota Timberwolves vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves getting points are attractive, and they have won 7 of the last 10 meetings against the Thunder, but we can't ignore that 10 of their 14 losses this season have come on the road. The Thunder also beat the Timberwolves on the road a little over a week ago as 3 point underdogs. The Thunder are also 30-16 ATS on the season, making them the best covering team in the NBA. I'll gladly lay the bucket with OKC at home.
