Milwaukee Bucks vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

I've been fading the Milwaukee Bucks all season and that's not going to change here as the coaching change hasn't helped as they're 3-7 SU under Doc Rivers. The Bucks are 21-34-1 ATS on the season. The Minnesota Timberwolves are 19-5 SU at home and have covered 4 straight games. The Timberwolves are a profitable 30-25 ATS on the season. The Timberwolves are one of those young teams that get up for games like this, as it's a chance to prove they're legit. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Timberwolves at home.
