Washington Wizards vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves are listed as a 4-point home favorite over the Washington Wizards.  The total for the game is 205.  To me, this game is very interesting due to many factors.  First, the Washington Wizards have not won two games in a row all season and secondly they have not won a road game all year.  The Wizards are an amazing 0-18 on the road and have only covered the spread in five of these games.  Overall the Washington Wizards have only covered the spread in fourteen of their first thirty-six games.  Sports bettors who have consistently bet against the Washington Wizards have won bundles of cash.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have struggled since the New Year.  After winning their first game of the New Year, they have lost there past five games.  Minnesotas second leading scorer Michael Beasey is listed as day-to-day.  I believe he will play in this game though.

Scoring has not been the Minnesota Timberwolves problem this year.  They average 102.2 points per game, which ranks them eighth in the league.  The problem is that they rank last in defense, giving up a whopping 108.1 points per game.  Head to head, the Washington Wizards dominate the Minnesota Timberwolves recently.  The Wizards have won five of the last six games and have also covered the spread in the past five games.  I am going to take a shot today with the Wizards winning their first road game of the year and also winning their first back-to-back this year.  Im taking the Wizards plus the 4 points.
