The Toronto Raptors and Minnesota Timberwolves meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Target Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Raptors vs Timberwolves prediction.

Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have been in terrible shape as they’ve lost 16 of their last 17 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a 15th straight defeat after getting routed by the Lakers in a 128-111 loss last night. RJ Barrett led the team with 28 points, six rebounds and six assists, Immanuel Quickley added 20 points with six assists while Kelly Olynyk chipped in with 14 points, seven rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Raptors shot 48 percent from the field and 10 of 32 from the 3-point line as they did a decent job of hanging with the Lakers in the first half, before they got blown away by 36-21 in the third quarter to lose big in the end. No Raptors bench player scored more than six points and Garrett Temple shot just two of eight from the field and zero of five from the 3-point line.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in great shape as they’ve won eight of their last 10 games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after sneaking past the Rockets in a 113-106 win last night. Naz Reid led the team with 25 points on 10 of 17 shooting, Anthony Edwards added 21 points while Rudy Gobert tallied 12 points with 14 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 53 percent from the field and 11 of 26 from the 3-point line as they scored just 16 points in the first quarter to fall behind by 11 points early, before they dominated the second quarter by 38-22 to take full control of the contest. The Timberwolves will take on the Suns after this one.

Minnesota Timberwolves Team Facts

  • The Timberwolves have lost four of their last five games as favorites against Eastern Conference opponents following a win.
  • The Timberwolves have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight games as favorites against Eastern Conference opponents following a win.
  • Each of the Timberwolves’ last five home games against Eastern Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Toronto Raptors Team Facts

  • The Raptors have lost each of their last 14 games.
  • The road team has covered the spread in each of the Raptors’ last seven games.
  • Each of the Raptors’ last six road games against Northwest Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Raptors vs Timberwolves prediction

The Raptors are still missing a bunch of players including Jakob Poeltl, Ochai Agbaji and Chris Boucher, while the Timberwolves have ruled out Jaylen Clark and Karl-Anthony Towns once again. The Raptors haven’t been able to get anything going for a while now, and they just got smashed by the Lakers last night. I can’t imagine anything but a big win for the Timberwolves, who just took down the red-hot Rockets.
