Tons of action to choose from tonight for our Free Pick of the Day, but we’re heading out to the Lone Star State tonight where the San Antonio Spurs host the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Did you win with our Pick of the Day last night? We had the Heat +3.5 over the Rockets, who won SU 101-99.
The Timberwolves are a tale of two teams, with a stellar 12-5 record at home but are a terrible 2-12 away from the Target Center. The Spurs are a shell of their former self, but are 12-5 at the AT&T Center, and have won 6 of their last 7 there, including a dominating 123-96 win over the 76ers their last time out.
After coming over for Kawhi Leonard in the offseason from the Raptors, DeMar DeRozan is leading the Spurs with 23.3 points per game and 6.2 assists per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is holding his own as well, with a team leading 9.4 rebounds per game and 18.9 PPG, which is second only to DeRozan.
After finishing the season last year 12 games over .500, the Timberwolves are somewhat of a disappointment thus far in 2018, but are getting solid production from Karl-Anthony Towns and Derrick Rose, who has shown flashes of greatness after a few seasons of mediocrity.
ATB are a must follow on Instagram! Go follow now.
The Spurs have absolutely dominated the Timberwolves of late, and look to win their 11th straight against them at home tonight. When the Spurs and Timberwolves opened their seasons on October 17th, which ended in a 112-108 win for the Spurs, it improved San Antonio’s record against Minnesota to 50-9 when playing the Timberwolves at home.
In the last 10 meetings between these two, SA is 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS with the OVER 6-4. As well, the Timberwolves are only 5-11 ATS in their last 16 in San Antonio.
I expect this trend to continue tonight, and my Pick of the Day is for the Spurs to cover the 4 points.

Going against conventional wisdom almost worked last night, but in the end, it was another loss. I’m dipping back in the NBA tonight with a total wager on Rockets at Hawks.
