San Antonio Spurs
As aforementioned, the Spurs are the team closest to giving the Warriors a run for their money. San Antonio comes into Tuesday night’s game with a 53-16 record that places the franchises 3-games behind Golden State. Additionally, the Spurs are enjoying a 4-game lead over 3rd place Houston.
The Spurs open as heavy online betting NBA favorites against Minnesota. San Antonio is used to being pegged as the odds on favorite, and rightfully so as the Spurs have turned in yet another successful season under Gregg Popovich. However, the Spurs have gone 1-2 in their last three games, so we’ll have to see if the Timberwolves can hold off the home court.
The Spurs will turn to leading point scorer Kawhi Leonard to lead them in Tuesday night’s matchup. Leonard is averaging 26.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game. Second in points for San Antonio is LaMarcus Aldridge who is netting 17.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game
The Timberwolves haven’t turned in a winning season since 2005 and this year is no different. Coming into this contest with a 28-41 record, few bettors expect Minnesota to give the Spurs any trouble. Especially when considering that the Timberwolves have lost three in a row.
Nevertheless, Minnesota is hoping that Karl-Anthony Towns is able to lead them to a triumphant upset. Towns is putting up 24.6 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per outing. Second in points for Minnesota is Andrew Wiggins who is currently draining 23.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.3 assists for the struggling Timberwolves.
