Timberwolves vs. Jazz Best Bets

Timberwolves +5 (-110 DraftKings)

Minnesota is 5-0-1 ATS in their last six contests in Utah and 8-3 ATS overall in their last 11 times on the court. Despite being shorthanded without Austin Rivers and Kyle Anderson, the T-Wolves come in with some decent momentum, having won four of their last seven games and posting an average of 120.0 points in their last three contests. Utah is favored by five in this one despite lacking Micah Potter and possibly Jarred Vanderbilt, however, Minnesota is certainly capable of pulling off an upset on Wednesday night.

Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -120)
