Minnesota Timberwolves vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves just played the Trail Blazers on Tuesday and beat them by 12 points, and they beat them by 23 points back in January. There's a clear talent edge for the Timberwolves, it's just a matter of the young team staying focused to cover these big numbers. The Portland Trail Blazers continue to pile up the losses, and they've failed to cover their last 3 games. The Timberwolves have covered 5 of the last 8 meetings against the Trail Blazers. Thick line for a road team, but I have to lay the number with the Timberwolves.
