Timberwolves vs Warriors Betting Pick

The Pick: Warriors -9

Wednesday Night at 10:00PM EST at the Chase Center

Why bet the Golden State Warriors?

Out Of Towns: The Minnesota Timberwolves will be absent Karl-Anthony Towns for this road tilt as he recovers from COVID-19. Minnesota is in their second stint of the season without Towns available, as he has already missed time due to a wrist injury. The Timberwolves are 2-2 in games Towns played this season and are 2-10 in games in which he was not available. In NBA, specific players matter more than in any other sport and this Timberwolves team is a mess without Towns.

Minnesota Timberwolves road woes: Minnesota Timberwolves have been easily the league’s worst road team this season. The 1-6 record actually does not paint a vivid picture of how awful they have been. Their -16 average point differential in road games is over four points worse per game than the second worst team. Additonally, this matchup was played just two nights ago and the Warriors rolled to a 22 point victory. Expect more of the same on Wednesday night.

Golden State Warriors capability: The Golden State Warriors are just a middling team this season as they wait for the development of rookie James Wiseman and the return of Klay Thompson. That will take them into next season but they are still competent this season, particularlly at home. They carry a winning record at Chase Center and a positive point differential per game. That bodes well as the league’s worst road team flies into San Francisco.

For a hypothetical line, we will use the Warriors -8.5. This means a wager on the Warriors would require them to win by more than eight points to be considered a winner.

A wager on the Timberwolves, at +8.5, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by fewer than nine points to be considered a winner. Check above for the best Warriors vs Timberwolves against the spread predictions.

Warriors vs Timberwolves Over / Under Betting

Warriors vs Timberwolves Over/Under betting is a way of wagering on the contest without being required to pick the winner of the game. Instead, these wagers are against a set total of combined

points in the game. For a hypothetical example, we will use a total set at 228 points. Over/Under wagers on this Timberwolves vs Warriors contest would be betting over or under 228 combined points for the two teams.

There are multiple factors that go into Over/Under wagering, including pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency. Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor.

Warriors vs Timberwolves Moneyline Predictions

Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play.

Instead of laying or taking the points on the spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game, for instance the Warriors vs Timberwolves Money Line predictions. But if you want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.

For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Warriors -8.5 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread play, the Warriors can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The Timberwolves can be bet on to win the game outright while getting odds.

In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -375 on the Warriors and expect to get about +295 on the Timberwolves.

With the Warriors having an edge on the all time series and additonally in the more recent matchups, the history points to the Warriors side, but that is just one piece of the puzzle. There are hours of research required for successful NBA predictions, and we are here to provide that for you, with a conclusion summed up and bottom lined.
