Minnesota Timberwolves vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks aren't a team I'm excited to back in the favorite role because they don't play a lick of defense, and they're 19-31 ATS because of it. The Bucks are in a tough spot in this game because they're without Middleton with an ankle injury, and they could be without Lillard due to an ankle injury. The Minnesota Timberwolves are far and away the healthier team, and it's hard to argue over taking the free point here. The Bucks were losing games these last two weeks with their stars on the court, and now they're banged up. Give me the Timberwolves.
