Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Cavaliers are an elite team, but they just haven’t figured it out yet. There’s little reason to believe the LeBron-led group can come across with a victory straight up at this point in their particular process.
As far as the spread goes…
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Minnesota ATS
If you think the Cavaliers are going to figure it out against this group, you haven’t figured it out quite yet. Tyronn Lue’s group isn’t going to get this group to figure it out on the road against a squad that is a legitimate top-four group in the NBA’s better conference.
If the Cavs can get a transcendent performance out of Isaiah Thomas, there might be something here.
But with the group as is, there’s little reason to believe this group can make a big difference.
The Cavaliers should keep this close, but there’s no real reason to think they can keep it close enough to get the win straight up.
