Timberwolves at Wizards: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Wizards 120, Timberwolves 114
Money line (ML)
The Timberwolves are just awful right now, having lost six in a row, 10 of 11 and 12 of 14. The Wizards are hot right now, having won six of seven. They have won their last four at home. Minnesota is just an awful bet right now, so take the WIZARDS (-190).

Against the spread (ATS)
The Wolves have also failed to cover the spread in their last six games. The Wizards have covered the spread in six of their last seven and are an even 15-15 ATS this season. Minnesota is 7-10-1 ATS on the road and 12-17-1 as underdogs.
Take the WIZARDS -4.5 (-110).
This total is high, but understandably so. The two teams are in the bottom four in points allowed. They combine to allow 235.6 points per game. Washington has firepower with Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook. Its defense will allow the Timberwolves to stay in it but it won’t quite get high enough.
Take UNDER 237.5 (-110).
