Timberwolves at Kings: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Timberwolves 124, Kings 119
Money line (ML)
The TIMBERWOLVES (+155) haven't had a lot of success this season, but two of their 16 victories were against the Kings.
You just cannot back Sacramento, as the Wolves are their kryptonite and the Kings have dropped 10 of their past 11 outings.
Against the spread (ATS)
The TIMBERWOLVES +4.5 (-110) are catching more than two buckets from a team they just beat by 14 points, and a team they've beaten twice this season.
Back Minnesota again, as Sacramento is really in a nosedive.
OVER 238.5 (-115) is the way to go in this one. The Over easily cashed in Tuesday's battle, with a total of 254 points topping the 240-point line.
That seemed like a rather high number on paper, but Minnesota allowed 120 or more points in four of its past five games and six of the past eight. Defense is just not the forte of either of these teams. Look for another track meet.
