Knicks vs Timberwolves Prediction
The current betting odds have the Timberwolves listed as a 3.5 point favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Timberwolves have looked really good this season with their 9-3 record overall and they have also been great at home with their 5-0 home record. The Knicks have also looked good this season with their 8-5 record overall but they are only 5-3 in their road games. They have won 3 games in a row coming into this game but those games have also been against some of the worst teams in the NBA right now. The Timberwolves have the momentum from a tough road win against the Pelicans in their last game and they already have some good wins under their belt this season as they fight to keep their spot at the top of the West. The best way to place a bet here is on the Timberwolves to cover the spread in this game.
