Why it wins >>
Against The Spread Pick : NO Pelicans (-11.5)
The Timberwolves and NO Pelicans face off on Tuesday night and the value is with the home team. The Timberwolves have been a fun team since bringing in D’Angelo Russell, but that hasn’t resulted in a lot of wins. The Timberwolves’ offense has been strong, but the defense has been a massive issue. Over the last five games the Timberwolves are giving up 128 points and that is a problem when facing a high powered offense like the Pelicans. Zion Williamson has lived up to the hype and in the last game against the Lakers he put up an impressive 35 points. The Timberwolves don’t have anyone to match up with him and that will be the difference. . Back the NO Pelicans to get the job done and cover the spread.
Over/Under Pick – OVER 247.5 Game Totals
As the saying goes, life is too short to back the Under!! Yes, OK, The over doesn’t always cash for the Timberwolves, but there is not really any other way to bet it when they are involved. In the last five the Wolves are giving up 128 points per game, and this is a Pelicans team that can score. Early in the month, the Pelicans put up 142 points against the Clippers, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see them hit 140 again in this game. The over is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings between these teams in New Orleans. Back the OVER in this one!!
