Golden State Warriors at Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Preview

The Warriors (43-18) head out to Minnesota after a home loss on Sunday to the Dallas Mavericks, hoping to recover from their fourth-quarter meltdown in that game.

The Timberwolves (33-29) are back at home for this game and are looking to get a win to stay in a heated race for a spot in the NBA playoffs after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.

The Warriors have missed the NBA playoffs the last two seasons but are currently in second place and hoping to pick up a win to keep their place in a heated Western Conference to stay ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies. When looking at betting, Minnesota is listed at -1.5 over Golden State.

Can the Warriors Recover from Their Fourth Quarter Disaster From Sunday

With the Warriors six games behind the Phoenix Suns for first place in the Western Conference, every game counts. While the Warriors’ loss on Sunday didn’t hurt them, seeing the Suns’ lost their game on Sunday as well, they missed an opportunity to edge one game closer to first place. What was worse about the loss against the Mavericks on Sunday was the 19-point fourth-quarter lead that the Warriors blew.

The Warriors went into the half up by 12 and added another two points at the end of the third quarter. The Warriors would start the fourth up by 14 and extend it to 19 before the meltdown began allowing the Mavericks to go on a 26 tear during an eight and a half minute span. The Warriors will need to overcome that loss by keeping their energy throughout the game and focusing on the Timberwolves if they want to win tonight.

Timberwolves Looking to Continue Shining for the Home Crowd

The Timberwolves have looked their best when playing at home. The team has a record of 18-12 while playing at home, and in their last ten home games, they are 8-2.

Home-court advantage has helped the Timberwolves as of late as they are hoping to get a spot in the NBA playoffs this year. The Timberwolves are also coming off a great win on Monday against a Cavaliers team that was on an eight-game home winning streak.

With the Warriors choking in the fourth quarter and the Timberwolves having a good run at home, the Timberwolves have a good chance of pulling off the win here.

The Timberwolves are hungry for another win and have a chance to do just that with a Warriors team reeling from their loss on Sunday. The Timberwolves have the momentum and the home-court advantage in this game, and with a win, they can put some distance between themselves and the people behind them in the Western Conference.

Betting Prediction

The Timberwolves have been hard to beat at home lately and come into this game as a favorite against a Warriors team with a better record than the Timberwolves.

The Warriors will also be missing Klay Thompson, who is out with an illness, which will hurt the Warriors’ offensive firepower. The Timberwolves have been average at home against the spread this season, going 15-14-1 in the 30 home games they have played for the season.

Steph Curry will have to handle the workload to give the Warriors a chance to win this game. While the Warriors have an excellent record, they are 13-13-2 against the spread on the road this season and are 6-5 as road underdogs for the season.

With the Warriors going 5-5 in their last ten games, and the Timberwolves looking to make waves in the Western Conference, the Timberwolves at -1.5 is the pick to play for this game.
