The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking for their fourth straight win this season when they take on the lowly New Orleans Pelicans (3-15) on Monday. 

New Orleans is 7-11 against the spread this season, but it has been brutal in terms of winning games without Zion Williamson. Minnesota, on the other hand, has covered the spread in four straight games heading into tonight’s matchup.

Here are the odds via WynnBET:

Timberwolves vs. Pelicans Odds, Spread and Total


  • Timberwolves -3.0 (-110)
  • Pelicans +3.0 (-110)


  • Timberwolves: -160
  • Pelicans: +140


  • 213.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

Timberwolves vs. Pelicans Prediction and Pick

As I mentioned on today’s episode of the “Bet & Breakfast” podcast, the Timberwolves are my best bet for tonight in the NBA. 

Minnesota has been on fire as of late, blowing out a horrible Memphis Grizzlies defense on Saturday, and it faces the No. 29-ranked Pelicans defense tonight. Anthony Edwards has been on a tear over his last three (all wins) and I think Minnesota will roll against this Pelicans team. 

New Orleans is 26th in the NBA in offensive rating and 29th in defensive rating while the Wolves have posted a top-10 defensive rating this season. Minnesota is all 4-4 against the spread on the road this season, which is better than it is at home (3-5). 

Fade the Pelicans until Zion comes back, it’s only right. 

Pick: Timberwolves -3.0 (-110)
