Timberwolves vs Spurs Prediction & Pick
These teams have already met twice this season, with both games being played in Minnesota. The Spurs came out on top by a score of 115-106 on Oct. 24, while the Timberwolves emerged victorious by a score of 134-122 on Oct. 26. This will be the final head-to-head meeting between these squads.
The Timberwolves head into this game fully healthy and fresh off back-to-back double-digit victories. That has to be scary for a San Antonio defense that is tied for sixth in the NBA in points allowed in the paint per game (53.7). Keeping Rudy Gobert and Karl Anthony-Towns at bay will be a tough task.
Minnesota is 4-1 in its last five games against San Antonio, so I'll side with the road team here.
Final Score Prediction: Timberwolves: 124 | Spurs: 117

Timberwolves vs Spurs Best Bet
This game features the highest total of any game on Sunday, but there's a good reason for that. San Antonio has posted sixth-worst defensive efficiency mark in the league and gives up 122.0 points per game (No. 28 in NBA). The Spurs also average a reliable 119.8 points per game, though (No. 2 in NBA).
A good offense and a bad defense has led to the over hitting in four of San Antonio's last six games. Keep in mind the over has hit in 10 of the Spurs' last 15 matchups against the Timberwolves as well. Seeing two teams that rank among the top-4 in pace battle is going to lead to a ton of easy baskets.
Bet: Over 239 Points (-110)
