Portland Trail Blazers at Minnesota Timberwolves odds, picks and prediction

The Portland Trail Blazers (25-37) continue their four-game road trip with the first of two games in a row against the Minnesota Timberwolves (35-29). Tip-off is 8 p.m. ET at Target Center. Below, we look at the Trail Blazers vs. Timberwolves odds and lines, and make our expert NBA picks, predictions and bets.

The Trail Blazers, who won four straight games leading up to the All-Star break, have been bad since coming back. They have lost all three of their games since the break by 30 points or more and are currently outside the playoff picture in the Western Conference’s 11th seed.

The Timberwolves have won three games in a row and are 11-4 in their last 15 outings. They are playing for the second night in a row after blowing out the Oklahoma City Thunder 138-101 on the road Friday. They are now the seventh seed in the Western Conference.

Trail Blazers at Timberwolves odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Timberwolves 121, Trail Blazers 102

Money line

PASS on the money line unless you are including it in some parlay. The Blazers are just awful right now and have been all year on the road (9-19 record). They are also only 11-27 against conference opponents.

The Timberwolves have been playing extremely well overall since the end of January. They have beaten the Blazers in both previous meetings this season.

Against the spread

The Blazers have lost each of their last three games by at least 30 points.

The Timberwolves have covered the spread in their last three games.

The two previous games between the two teams this season were decided by a total of 7 points, but with how both teams are playing right now, I would expect the Wolves to blow out the Blazers tonight.

Take the TIMBERWOLVES -14.5 (-107).

Over/Under

Tonight’s game has a high projected total, but Minnesota’s last five games have all had at least 233 points.

The Trail Blazers have not cracked 100 points in their last three games and have failed to score 100 in seven of their last 12 games.

Take UNDER 233.5 (-108).
