Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction: Wolves outclass Hawks in barn burner.
This game has a chance to be a high-scoring affair. Not because either team has an elite offense, of course; because both offenses are destined to look much better than they actually are against each other’s porous defense.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves ATS
The Timberwolves, despite being on the road in this one, has the clear-cut advantage of firepower versus terrible defense.
The Hawks have been one, if not the worst team in the league this season.
