Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves are coming in this game against the Washington Wizards with a six-game losing streak. Their most recent matchup was an overtime loss with the Chicago Bulls with the final score at 126-133. Karl-Anthony Towns has been healthy but his presence has not been able to lift the Timberwolves in their current situation. The center was able to give the team 24 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals. Adding to the Timberwolves’ woes is Malik Beasley getting a 12-game suspension without pay after pleading guilty to a felony count of violence.

Washington Wizards Betting

The Washington Wizards from the bottom of the NBA Eastern Conference standings managed to get themselves up three places higher. This team has only lost once in their past seven games and it was in the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers just two games ago. They immediately came back edging the Denver Nuggets on the road by just two points, 112-110. Bradley Beal continues his offensive barrage throughout the entire league with 33 points while Russell Westbrook tallied another triple-double. Rui Hachimura has been the unsung hero for the Wizards as he has been the consistent third option behind Westbrook and Beal.
