The Atlanta Hawks are coming off a bad loss to a short-handed Charlotte Hornets team on Sunday night as they head into a back-to-back against the Minnesota Timberwolves

The Hawks have struggled on the road this season, going just 3-9 against the spread, but Minnesota is just 6-7 against the spread at home this season.

Hawks vs. Timberwolves Prediction and Pick

There are plenty of injuries in this matchup, as D’Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns are both questionable for Minnesota. Bogdan Bogdanovic, De’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish are all out for Atlanta. 

The Hawks played an absolute track meet with the Hornets on Sunday night, losing 130-127, but I don’t know how they bounce back on the road against a Timberwolves team that is No. 5 in the NBA in defensive rating. 

With several players out or potentially out, I like the under in this game considering Minnesota is 14-9 on unders this season and allows just 107.0 points per game. 

Atlanta is No. 3 in offensive rating, but it plays at a slower pace (19th in the NBA) than you’d expect. The Hawks are also 3-2 on unders in back-to-backs this season. 

Pick: Hawks-Timberwolves UNDER 221.0 (-110)
