The Timberwolves appear overmatched opposite the streaking Atlanta which already racked seven straight wins. As expected, defending champions Golden State torched Detroit City while the San Antonio Spurs put Sacramento on a stranglehold. Minnesota deserves an extra pat in back, after securing third place in the talent-laden Western Conference, and leading the Northwest, ahead of OKC, Portland and Denver.

Prior to the day’s NBA games commencing, betting odds surely weren’t favourable to teams like the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Denver Nuggets, or the Indiana Pacers. Memphis and the Los Angeles Clippers were engaged in a fierce duel, but in the end, it was Doc Rivers’ men that prevailed, putting the Clips second in the Pacific behind the Warriors.

But that is sports betting for you – the favourites aren’t always the victors, because the underdogs can always pull off a surprise win, and the Nuggets, Wolves, and Pacers proved it correct this time, versus Portland, Atlanta and Orlando, respectively. Philly went 0-7 after an 111-88 trouncing in the hands of the Joakim Noah-less Chicago Bulls. Denver have not won against Portland in their last eight meetings and the Pacers are coming off a loss, while their opponent Orlando carry back-to-back wins including a 92-87 demolition of Toronto.
