In the second of their four-game road trip, the Minnesota Timberwolves (31-32) will face the Los Angeles Clippers (33-30) at the Crypto.com Arena on Tuesday. Both teams will be hoping to rebound in this crucial clash despite having a rocky start following the All-Star break, with each losing their first two games.
Ivica Zubac of the Clippers is classified as day-to-day with a right calf strain.
The Timberwolves’ Jaylen Nowell is doubtful due to a knee problem. Rudy Gobert is also listed as probable for the contest, while Karl-Anthony Towns is still sidelined with a calf issue.
We predict that the Clippers will win this match with a final score of 120–112.
The Timberwolves are playing a strong Clippers team that are trying to rebound after two straight losses, despite the fact that they have won four of their last five games by scoring at least 120 points a game.
The Clippers are favorites to win even though they have dropped their last two games but have won three of their previous five home games. The Timberwolves, on the other hand.
Against The Spread:
The Timberwolves haven’t gone longer than three games without covering the spread this season, but they haven’t done it in their previous three games .
The Timberwolves therefore have a solid probability of covering the spread even if they don’t necessarily have the upper hand in the game.
The Clippers have lost their last five games by an average score of 132.0 points, and the Over is 4-0 in their last four games. On the other hand, the Timberwolves have scored at least 120 points in their previous five games and the Over is 4-1 in their last five road games against teams with a winning home record.
We think there will be over 234.5 in this matchup.
The Clippers are the club expected to win as the Timberwolves might find it difficult on the road.
But, the Timberwolves have recently been able to score over 120 points consistently, so even if you don’t think they can win the game outright, they have a strong chance of covering the spread.
