T-Wolves vs Warriors: Predictions, Odds and Betting Tips
Friday November 2nd, 10:30 pm Eastern Time
The Warriors are coming off of a record-breaking performance on Monday night, while the T’Wolves continue to struggle with inconsistent play from their big-name stars.
It was nice to see Minnesota knock off LeBron and the Lakers on Monday night, and it was even nicer to see Jimmy Butler bounce back from a pitiful 4-point performance on Friday by leading all scorers with 32. Still, the up and down play should cause major concern for Tom Thibodeau and his T’Wolves. Andrew Wiggins continues to be day-to-day with a right quad injury. To replace Wiggins, Minnesota has inserted Josh Okogie into the starting lineup. Okogie has had some high flying, SportsCenter top-ten moments, but has been abysmal from the field over the past two games. He shot a combined 6 for 24 vs. Milwaukee, and Toronto.
While Minnesota seems littered with question marks, the Warriors continue to go on their way of usual, league wide, dominance. Klay Thompson recently reminded everyone that, on a team that also consist of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, Thompson might be the best shooter on the team. The all-star guard broke the 3-point record on Monday night, by nailing 14 threes. Klay surpassed, you guessed it, his fellow Splash Brother Steph Curry.
The Warriors are hitting on all cylinders after battling it out in tightly contested matchups to begin the year. The Warriors responded from the single blemish on their record by winning the next five games by an average of 19.8 points. Expect much of the same come Friday. The backcourt of the Warriors should have huge games, as the one and two guards are currently the weakest spots in Minnesota’s starting five.
Score prediction: Warriors win 122-109

The Warriors have won five games in a row by a nearly 20-point margin. The T’Wolves are a below .500 team, dealing with injuries, as trade rumors continue to circulate around Jimmy Butler’s name. The Warriors should pull away by the 3rd quarter, and not look back.
Three of the top 20 scores in the league will be on the court come Sunday in Oakland. Klay is coming off of a 52-point game, while Steph leads the league in scoring with nearly 33 points per. The Warriors haven’t scored under 120 points in five games.
