The Minnesota Timberwolves take on the Milwaukee Bucks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the Fiserv Forum on Wednesday. The Timberwolves are coming off of a win over the Brooklyn Nets in overtime. The Timberwolves have only won two of their last five games, and both wins went into overtime, as their other win was over the Sacramento Kings in double overtime.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are 12 - 20 on the season and are dealing with multiple injuries at the moment, with Karl Anthony-Towns possibly missing this game against the Bucks. The Timberwolves are one of the best rebounding teams in the NBA, and losing Karl Anthony-Towns for even if you gave hurts them in the rebounding department and puts them at a disadvantage, especially against the Bucks.

The Milwaukee Bucks are on a three-game winning streak, last losing to the Philadelphia 76ers on Christmas. The Bucks have won eight of their previous ten games.

The Bucks are the best team in the NBA with a record of 30-5. The Milwaukee Bucks are the number one scoring team in the entire NBA and the number one rebounding team in the NBA.cAs expected, Giannis Antetokounmpo is having yet another MVP season, and is averaging 30.3 points per game and 12.8 rebounds per game. 

Minnesota is 12-18 ATS this season
Over is 17-15 for the Timberwolves this season
Milwaukee is 21-14 ATS this season
Over is 17-17-1 for the Bucks this season

The Minnesota Timberwolves were already going to have their hands full trying to beat the Milwaukee Bucks as it is. However, the Timberwolves are dealing with a ton of injuries right now including their best player Karl Anthony-Towns, as well as Andrew Wiggins, and the injuries make it nearly impossible for me to think that the Minnesota Timberwolves will be the Milwaukee Bucks. Especially with the Timberwolves typically using rebounding to give them an advantage, and now they're playing against the best rebounding team in the NBA. I think the Milwaukee Bucks win this, and Giannis Antetokounmpo has a fantastic game as well. Final Score Prediction, Milwaukee Bucks win 127-109.
