Memphis Grizzlies vs Minnesota Timberwolves: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

In what was one of the biggest upsets of the season, the Memphis Grizzlies were able to beat the Golden State Warriors 116-107 on Tuesday, despite entering the game as 7.5 point underdogs. Ja Morant, Marcus Smart, Desmond Bane, Derrick Rose, Brandon Clark and Steven Adams are all out with injuries which makes Memphis the most injury plagued team this season. At 15-25 SU they’re 5 games behind the 10th seed and a play-in tournament, but despite all the setbacks this season this team is not giving up. They have nothing to lose tonight at Minnesota, the oddsmakers are expecting a blowout victory for the home team as the visitors are 13.5 point underdogs. The first 2 meetings of the season were won by the Timberwolves 119-97 and 127-103.

There is one caveat to consider before bettong on this game and that’s the fact that Minnesota is playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back. They beat the Detroit Pistons last night 124-117, failing to cover as 12 point favorites. The defense surprisingly struggled against one of the worst offenses in the NBA, allowing the Pistons to shoot over 51% from the field. Knowing that Memphis knocked down 20 threes in their last game against Golden State, Minnesota cannot go into this game thinking it will be easy. The visitors have covered the spread in their last 6 of 8 road games and are 5-1 SU in their last 6 vs Western Conference opponents. Minnesota played in a back-to-back scenario just 3 times this season, losing 2 of 3 games.

Minnesota Timberwolves Point Spread Prediction

Minnesota Timberwolves -13.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds at time of publishing.

We probably shouldn’t be overthinking this one. It’s the best team in the Western Conference against the 13th best, playing at home where they are 16-2 SU. So even if there are some tired legs out there I still expect Anthony Edwards and co. to dominate against the injury riddled Grizzlies. Back Minnesota to cover the spread.

Grizzlies vs Timberwolves Total Points Prediction: Under 215.5

Under 215.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds at time of publishing.

Defense is the primary reason the Timberwolves are ranked so high this deep into the season. Even when they’re not clicking on the other end, this team still puts in the necessary effort defending the basketball which gives them a chance to win on most nights. Over the last 10 games they rank 4th in defensive rating, giving up just 110 points per 100 possessions. They’re one of the slowest teams in the league during this stretch, averaging just 97.1 possessions per game which explains why their last 3 of 4 opponents have scored just 105, 93 and 92 points against them. Memphis has over 90 points per game worth of players out with injuries at the moment, they could struggle on offense here. Sure, they did catch fire against the Warriors in their last game, but Minnesota is a way more serious team than the Dubs are this season. The under has cashed 7 times in the last 10 Grizzlies games and 4 times in the last 6 Timberwolves games. With the last 5 of 6 meetings between the two teams at Target Center all cashing on the under, I have enough reasons to back the under in this game.
