Raptors vs Timberwolves prediction

Both the Raptors and Timberwolves are on the end of a back to back, so laying this sort of number can be tricky. The Timberwolves are also a young team that sometimes shows their youth when it comes to putting teams away. This is an easy letdown spot for the Timberwolves, and this game could be closer than expected. However, the Raptors are god awful as they haven't won a game in a month, and they've covered just 1 of their last 10 games. The Timberwolves are still fighting for the top seed in the West, so there's motivation to show up. There are better options out there, but I can't get behind the Raptors. It's the Timberwolves or pass for me.
