NBA Odds: Timberwolves vs. Bulls
|Time | Channel||8 p.m. ET | NBCS-CHI|
The Timberwolves head to the United Center to take on the Bulls on Wednesday night. Minnesota has lost five straight games and is heading into its second game with new head coach Chris Finch.
The Bulls will be playing their first game since shooting guard Zach LaVine was announced as a first-time NBA All-Star. They are looking to keep their good times rolling, as the Bulls have won four of their last five games.
Chicago has a top-five defense over the past five games per NBA Advanced Stats, allowing only 105.7 points per 100 possessions over that span.
But the Timberwolves have also been playing (slightly) better defense, and Finch is looking like he may be able to get the most out of Karl Anthony-Towns, who had 11 assists against the Bucks on Tuesday.
It seems like sharp bettors agree with this assessment, as our PRO Report suggests that pros are finding value with the Finch-led Timberwolves tonight.
