Wednesday night in NBA action the Minnesota Timberwolves travel to Golden State where they will play the Warriors. The Timberwolves enter this match-up having won 4 of their last 5, and 8 of their last 11 games. Anthony Edwards is playing well in leading the Timberwolves during the aforementioned stretch and I think they are an attractive underdog pick in this game tonight. On the season Minnesota is averaging 111.0 ppg and I expect them to go under that number in this game. This season the Warriors are holding their opponents to just 101.6 ppg, the lowest in the league and are 8-17-1 O/U at home. Take the Under 227.5
