Minnesota Timberwolves vs Cleveland Cavaliers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Donovan Mitchell and the Cleveland Cavaliers can’t seem to catch a break on the injury front. Just a couple of games since returning from a hamstring issue, Mitchell broke his nose against the Houston Rockets about a week ago. The Cavs are 1-1 SU without him in the two games, taking on an elite team like Minnesota could be a challenge without their best player. Cleveland did win the first meeting 113-104 about 2 weeks ago, Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen had 34 and 33 points in that game. It was only the 2nd time Cleveland was able to cover the spread in the last 8 meetings with Minnesota and just their 2nd win in 6 games overall. With the Orlando Magic currently on a 5-game win streak, the 3rd seed might come into question if the Cavaliers aren’t able to connect a few wins in the coming weeks.

Minnesota is in a similar position with injuries to Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns derailing them in their quest of finishing with the top record in the West. To make matters worse they also have Anthony Edwards and Naz Reid on the injury report as well, however they only have minor knocks and should be ready to play here. Ant-Man is doing his best to keep this team afloat on his own, but Minnesota has struggled to cover the spread in home games lately going just 1-5 ATS in their last 6. However, they’re still 5.5 point favorites against the Cavaliers here, in that role they’ve won 9 of their last 13 games this season. It’s worth mentioning that this team has upped its average of threes per game from 12.5 to 15.7 per game over the last 3 games.

Cleveland Cavaliers Point Spread Prediction

Cavaliers +5.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Mitchell didn’t play in the first meeting and it didn’t matter the Cavs too much. I feel like Minnesota will feel Gobert’s and KAT’s absence way more here. Cleveland is a solid 6-3 ATS in their last 9 visits to Target Center, they should be able to build on that run here. Cavs to cover.

Timberwolves vs Cavaliers Total Points Prediction: Over 211.5

Over 211.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Point have been hard to come by for both sides lately. Even the first meeting of the season produced just 217 points and we had an extra 5 minutes of OT in that game. Because of this we have a very modest projected total of 211.5 points, so I’m very tempted to go with the over. This number has been easily surpassed in Minnesota’s last 5 games, the lack of an inside defender like Gobert truly hurts this team. Jarrett Allen torched them in the first meeting with 33 points, with most of them coming on the inside. The over is 4-2 in the last 6 Minnesota games and 5-2 in the last 7 Cavaliers games. Head-to-head meetings have also cashed on the over more often than not, the last 5 meetings have provided 4 of them. Both teams might be struggling with injuries, but the number is just too low for me, so I’m taking the points here.
