Pick against the spread, over/under for Bucks vs. Timberwolves on Saturday

We go over some of the best betting options for Saturday’s matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Minnesota Timberwolves.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Sacramento Kings Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the hottest teams in the NBA will take the floor in Minneapolis on Saturday, March 19th when the Milwaukee Bucks head on the road for a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Milwaukee won eight of their last nine games, and Minnesota won nine of their last 10 contests.

The Bucks are 2.5-point favorites on DraftKings Sportsbook with -145 moneyline odds, making the Timberwolves +125 underdogs. The over/under is set at 244.5.

Bucks vs. Timberwolves, 5:00 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Timberwolves +2.5

Both teams haven’t played since Wednesday, but Minnesota is playing their second straight home game, while the Bucks are on the road for the fourth game in a row. It’s a slight edge for the Timberwolves, but we’ll side with the home team getting the points.

Over/Under: Under 244.5

The Timberwolves play faster than any team in the NBA and plenty of stats show there will be a ton of points scored in this matchup, but this is far too high of a number to take with any confidence. I’ll bet against both teams reaching 120 points in this contest.
