Minnesota Timberwolves at Indiana Pacers odds, picks and prediction

The Indiana Pacers (22-27) host the Minnesota Timberwolves (13-38) Wednesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse for a 7 p.m. ET tip-off. Below, we analyze the Timberwolves-Pacers odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

Minnesota ended a two-game skid by beating the Sacramento Kings 116-106 as a 3.5-point home underdog Monday. Over the past two weeks, the Timberwolves are just 3-4 straight up but they covered the spread in five of those seven games.

Indiana was crushed 113-97 by the Chicago Bulls Tuesday as a 2-point home underdog but was without PG Malcolm Brogdon and All-Star PF Domantas Sabonis. The Pacers are just 2-4 straight up and against the spread in their last six games.

The Pacers have beaten the T-Wolves in four straight meetings while going 3-1 ATS, including a 134-128 win Feb. 17.

Prediction

Timberwolves 115, Pacers 107

Money line (ML)

Not only should the TIMBERWOLVES (+110) have covered against the Pacers earlier this season but they could’ve easily won that game. They coughed up a 10-point fourth-quarter lead and Indiana needed overtime to cover the 5.5-point spread by only a half-point.

While Minnesota will be without its leading scorer from that game in Beasley, Russell should be in the lineup and his skill set fits nicely in the backcourt with PG Ricky Rubio.

Speaking of “loss of production”, the Pacers could be without their top-two scorers and rebounders and top assist man. Sabonis had a 36-16-10 triple-double and Brogdon nearly had a triple-double with 32-9-7 in the first meeting with the T-Wolves.

Judging by the current pricing of Timberwolves-Pacers, it would appear at least two of Indiana’s three questionable starters will miss this meeting.

The possible frontcourt absences are the most troubling, considering T-Wolves C Karl-Anthony Towns has dominated the Pacers in his career.

“LEAN” to the TIMBERWOLVES (+110) for a half-unit until we see the final injury report.

Against the spread (ATS)

PASS unless Indiana gets good injury luck and Minnesota gets 3 or more points then I’d take the points with the Wolves.

Over/Under (O/U)

The UNDER 231.5 (-110) is my favorite play in Timberwolves-Pacers because I don’t see where all these points are coming from.

KAT will probably have a monster game and Pacers SG Caris LeVert is due for a big scoring night.

If the three Pacers listed as “questionable” on the injury report are out, combined with Beasley’s absence, there will be 107 points missing between both teams.

Also, Minnesota’s defense has shown up recently; the Wolves held the Brooklyn Nets to only 112 points March 29 and have played to the Under in seven of their last 10 games.
