Knicks at Timberwolves picks and predictions

Prediction

Timberwolves 104, Knicks 102

Moneyline

BET TIMBERWOLVES (-134).

Both teams are hot right now, but Minnesota has faced tougher competition — it beat Denver, Golden State twice, Boston, and New Orleans twice, all in its last 10 games. The Timberwolves have been on a tear to start the season, and I simply don’t see the Knicks stopping the duo of F/C Karl-Anthony Towns and G Anthony Edwards. Minnesota is also 5-0 at home on the year and 7-3 in its last 10 matchups with New York.

Against the spread

LEAN KNICKS +2.5 (-108).

New York is 3-0 ATS in its last 3 games, while the Timberwolves are 0-3 ATS in their last 3. The Knicks are also 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games and 3-1 ATS in their last 4 matchups with Minnesota. Both teams are very good, very hot, and have similar play styles, so expect this to be a very close game.

Over/Under

BET UNDER 214.5 (-112).

Neither of these teams is very good offensively, but both are among the best in the league defensively. New York allows only 104.9 points per game, while Minnesota only allows 106.8 PPG. Both offenses average less than 113 PPG, and that is a trend that should continue here as both teams can defend in all facets of the game.
