Washington Wizards vs Minnesota Timberwolves: Preview & Picks 02/16/2023

Game Preview



Game Preview

On Thursday night at Target Center, the Minnesota Timberwolves will play the Washington Wizards. Washington enters the game with a record of 27-30 overall, and it serves as both teams’ penultimate game before the All-Star break. The Wizards have won three of their previous four games, but Minnesota will be their opponent, and the Timberwolves are 31-29 overall and 20-12 at home.
Last game, Kyle Kuzma made a victorious comeback from an ankle strain by scoring 33 points on 55 percent shooting with six three-pointers as the Wizards defeated the Blazers by 25 points on the road. For Washington, Kristaps Porzingis contributed 28 points and 12 rebounds.
Anfernee Simons departed the game in the third quarter with an ankle sprain for Portland, which was playing without Jerami Grant and Jusuf Nurkic. However, it was a victory for a Washington team that is doing all in its power to remain relevant in the race for the Eastern Conference playoffs. Washington is in ninth place in the EC rankings after winning three of its last four games.
Now looking at the Timberwolves, they managed to defeat the Mavs by three on the road on Monday even though Kyrie Irving had the highest fourth-quarter scoring performance of his career with 26 points. For Dallas, who acquired Irving at the trade deadline last week, Luka Doncic added 33 points.
Let’s check the latest picks, NBA news, stats and NBA expert picks for Wizards vs Timberwolves. We’ve plenty of NBA predictions for you to consider.
With 10 offensive rebounds, Minnesota outrebounded Dallas 39-33 and shot 57.8 percent from the field. The Timberwolves scored 16 points off Mavericks errors and 64 points in the paint. Rudy Gobert supplied 21 points and 14 rebounds, and Anthony Edwards scored 32 points overall on 12-of-22 shooting. Minnesota had a lead of up to 26 points, but Dallas came back strongly with 39 points in the fourth quarter.
Thankfully for them, Kuzma’s return to the lineup has improved the Wizards’ health, and they have already defeated Minnesota this year. With Towns out and Gobert uncertain to play, Minny was able to compete in the paint in that game, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to repeat that performance.

What is the point spread in NBA?

NBA betting trends tend to lean toward the point spread of a game. A point spread is used to map or determine how likely a specific team will win a match within a particular number of points. Also known as a “line,” a spread is where experts create a margin to handicap their chosen team and project their winning potential. Based on these predictions, you can choose to bet on a favorite team or the underdog for your next wager. The projected numbers on the spread show a plus sign for the underdog and a minus sign for the favorite.

When you wager on the favorite team, a win occurs when the team wins, and the victory margin totals more than the point spread. A bet placed on the underdog wins when this team ties, wins or if the favorite team doesn’t exceed the total point spread amount. You may be familiar with the spread or line in other sports, commonly known as the money line, for bets on hockey or baseball games. You can also choose to play the under over, where you wager on the sum of points total over or under a specific score. When you bet using this method, you’ll need to risk a minimum of $110 to win a profit of $100.
