The lowly New Orleans Hornets welcome the Minnesota Timberwolves to town on Saturday in New Orleans. NBA spreads for all games can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Hornets have just won 12 games so far this season and as a result are staggering 26 games behind the first place Spurs in the Southwest Division. In New Orleans’ last game they came up short vs. the Nuggets in a really hard fought game that they lost by a score of 94-92. The Hornets best player this season has been guard Eric Gordon who is leading the team scoring at a 19 points per game clip.
The Timberwolves have a talented roster, but they have yet to find a consistent formula for wins. Minnesota has a record of 25-31 coming into Saturday and they sit 15.5 games back in the Northwest Division. The Wolves have lost 4 straight games heading into Saturday and lost their last game by a score of 97-94 to the Golden State Warriors at home.
New Orleans comes into this one just 5-11 ATS in their last 16 home games and just 5-10 overall in their last 25. The Timberwolves are just 0-4-1 ATS in the last 5 games.
Normally I don’t like backing road favorites, but that looks like the play here. It is a bit risky as Minnesota has struggled as of late, but the Hornets are the perfect team to get back on track with and I like the Timberwolves big here on Saturday so before the wager check out online sportsbook reviews.
