Timberwolves vs. Cavaliers Best Bets

T-Wolves Moneyline (-105, DraftKings)

Minnesota is currently the best road team in the NBA with a 21-11 record straight up. They have won two games in a row, with five straight as the away squad. They’ve beaten the Cavs the last three times these two teams have met and this time Cleveland will be without two of their best shooters. I like the Wolves to take this one on the road.

Risk:1.05 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit.
