New York Knicks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Preview

The New York Knicks have long been the example of terrible basketball in the NBA, but now a new team holds that moniker, the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Knicks have an over .500 record which is something Knicks fans and bettors alike aren’t used to. On Wednesday, the Knicks will get a chance to improve their record even further against a team that has 11 wins in 47 games.

There isn’t much good to say about the Minnesota Timberwolves this season. With only 11 wins on the season, Minnesota fans have hung their head in disappointment for another year. Somehow they still come in as close underdogs in this one, only being granted 3.5-points. With both teams coming off a loss, who should you take at the sportsbook on Wednesday?

New York Knicks Betting Preview: Can RJ Barret & Co. pull off a win on the road?

The Knicks are coming off a big loss to the Miami Heat and are looking to snag a road game before heading home to face the Dallas Mavericks. Overall on paper, this seems like it’d be an easy win for the Knicks. They’ve played well against strong teams with recent wins over the Milwaukee Bucks and the Washington Wizards. With a favorable matchup against a terrible Minnesota team, the Knicks seem to be the best bet on Wednesday.

If you need more confidence in your bet, the Knicks have an incredible record against the spread at 27-19-1. For a team that was a punching bag in the NBA not long ago, they’ve taken steps in the right direction to become a respectable team in the Eastern Conference. The injury list is short for the Knicks on Wednesday, with Derrick Rose potentially returning to the lineup.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Preview: Unreliable at home and at the sportsbook

The Timberwolves went from bad to worst this season and have the worst record in the NBA AT 11-36. They haven’t been able to get anything going on either side of the ball, and without D’Angelo Russell in the lineup, things aren’t looking good. Rookie standout Anthony Edwards has played well, which gives the Timberwolves something to look forward to. In the meantime, however, they’re preparing for the worst.

Against the spread, the Timberwolves are well under .500 with an ATS record of 20-26-1. They played the Knicks fairly recently and lost the game 103-99, missing the +3 points spread they were given. Minnesota has gone 6-14 ATS in their last twenty games and are 2-10 straight up in their last twelve games at home. With their recent string of games, it’s essentially a lost bet if you take the Timberwolves in this one.

Although the New York Knicks aren’t a powerhouse team like their counterparts in the Big Apple, they’ve been a great team against the spread. Reliability is key when making a pick, and the Minnesota Timberwolves are missing one of their best players, and they have a horrible home record. Look for the Knicks to pick up a game on the road before returning home on Friday, New York Knicks -3.5.
