The Minnesota Timberwolves will head to the FTX Arena to take on the Miami Heat in a non-conference matchup.

The Timberwolves won the only other game that these teams played against one another. Both teams are playing well. The difference is on the defensive side of the court as the Heat are fourth in the NBA with 104.7 points allowed while the Timberwolves are 20th in league with 111.7 points per game.

Go with the Heat to cover the spread and the over to hit as it hit in ten of the last 11 H2H games.

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Chicago Bulls (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CHI -3

Total Points: 221

The Cleveland Cavaliers will go on the road to face off against the Chicago Bulls in an Eastern Conference matchup. This looks like a potential playoff series.

The Cavaliers are 15-32 ATS (Against The Spread) in their previous 47 games and the under hit in five of the last seven games played in Chicago. Bet on Chicago and under.

Milwaukee is allowing 116 points in their previous four games, while Golden State is giving up 115.2 points in their last five games.

The Raptors are struggling as they are 7-22 ATS in the last 29 games while the over hit in four of the last five games. Go with the Raptors and over. 

Sacramento Kings @ Utah Jazz (9 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: UTA -10

Total Points: 230

Favored Team and Spread: WAS -6.5

Total Points: 219.5

The Washington Wizards will continue their west coast trip as they head to the Moda Center to take on the Portland Trail Blazers in a non-conference matchup.

Shooting guard Anfernee Simons (quadriceps), center Jusuf Nurkic (foot), and power forward Justice Winslow (Achilles) are all out for Portland.

The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games against the Trail Blazers and the over hit in 11 of the last 16 games, so go with Washington to cover and the over to hit.
