The Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz meet Monday in NBA action at the Delta Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Minnesota Timberwolves vs Utah Jazz prediction.

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been in decent form as they’ve won seven of their last 11 games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after blowing past the Jazz in a 119-100 road win on Saturday. Anthony Edwards led the team with 31 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, Mike Conley added 25 points on eight of 12 shooting while Naz Reid chipped in with 22 points, 12 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 47 percent from the field and 19 of 41 from the 3-point line as they got off to a slow start and scored just 19 points in the first quarter, but they sprung to life with 71 points in the second half to make it look easy in the end despite only having three players finish in double figures in scoring. The Timberwolves will face the Nuggets and Cavaliers after this game.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in a slump as they’ve lost 12 of their last 15 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid another big defeat after getting thrashed by the Timberwolves on Saturday. Collin Sexton led the team with 22 points and 10 assists off the bench, Keyonte George added 18 points while Taylor Hendricks chipped in with 15 points and 10 rebounds. As a team, the Jazz shot 45 percent from the field and just six of 26 from the 3-point line as they showed plenty of fight to keep pace with the Timberwolves early on to tie the game going into halftime, but they couldn’t keep it up and leaked 71 points in the second half to suffer another big defeat in front of their home fans.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Utah Jazz prediction

The Timberwolves are still missing Karl-Anthony Towns and they have, Kyle Anderson, Rudy Gobert and Monte Morris all listed as questionable, while the Jazz have ruled out Jordan Clarkson and they have Lauri Markkanen listed as questionable. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff given all the injuries involved, but the Timberwolves made it look pretty easy on Saturday and I think we’re about to see a similar result here with the Timberwolves cruising to another easy win against this ice-cold Jazz squad.
