The NBA season is in full swing, and on Sunday, the Minnesota Timberwolves will be taking on the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center. This game promises to be exciting, and we’re here to offer our expert opinion on who we think will come out on top and what the final score will be.
Injuries can significantly impact the outcome of any NBA game, and this matchup is no exception. Karl-Anthony Towns will be out with a calf injury for the Timberwolves, while Jaylen Nowell (knee) and Taurean Prince (personal) are both questionable. For the Warriors, Stephen Curry (knee) and Andrew Wiggins (private) will be out, while Draymond Green (knee) and Andre Iguodala (hip) are both questionable. Therefore, it’s essential to remember these injuries when making your wagers.
We predict the Warriors will come out on top in this matchup with a final score of 125-116. Golden State has been in excellent form at home, winning six of their last seven games at Chase Center. On the other hand, the Timberwolves have struggled away from home, losing their last five games against the spread against the Warriors.
We suggest passing on the Moneyline and instead focusing on other betting options, such as the range, total, or both.
Against The Spread:
We recommend betting on the Warriors to cover the -2.5 point spread. Golden State is a solid 14-11-1 ATS home favorite, while Minnesota is only 7-10 ATS on the road. Furthermore, the Warriors will be looking to exact revenge after blowing a 14-point fourth-quarter lead against the Timberwolves in their previous encounter on February 1. With a victory on Sunday, the Warriors will probably cover the small spread.
We suggest betting on the Over 233.5, as both teams have been playing a high-scoring brand of basketball recently. In their last eight games, the Timberwolves have hit the Over five times, while the Over has been successful in eight of the previous nine matchups between these two teams. Additionally, in Golden State’s last seven games following a victory, the Over has hit five times.
There you have it – our expert opinion on the Timberwolves vs. Warriors matchup. While anything can happen in sports, we believe the Warriors will come out on top and cover the spread, with the game likely going over the total. Remember to consider injuries when placing your wagers.
