Pelicans at Timberwolves: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Pelicans 119, Timberwolves 107

Money line (ML)

The Pelicans (-350) will cost you three and a half times your potential return, which is just way too much, even if the Timberwolves (+260) are atrocious and missing their best player until at least mid-February. AVOID.

Against the spread (ATS)

The PELICANS -7.5 (-110) are worth playing on the road, as they’re going to be angry after getting dusted in a pair of games at Utah on Tuesday and Thursday. Look for them to come out and take advantage of the beleaguered Timberwolves +7.5 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 222.5 (-110) is a good bet, as the Pellies enter on an 8-1 Over run across the past nine games, including each of the past three. The Over is also 4-1 in their previous five on the road.

The T-Pups have hit the Under in three in a row, but that’s mostly due to their inability to score the basketball. Defensively they’re not very good and will offer very little resistance until KAT comes back to clog up the middle.
