The Minnesota Timberwolves will be on the road against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, November 23rd, 2022. The Timberwolves enter the game having won four straight. Meanwhile, the Pacers enter the game as one of the surprise teams of the current NBA season. The game is a pure coin-toss by betting odds: both teams enter the game at -110 (10/11) with bet365 sportsbook.
The Pick: Pacers to beat Minnesota at -110 (bet365)
The Timberwolves’ current winning streak needs to be picked over. A close look shows that it’s not actually that impressive and that luck has factored in.
They beat the Cleveland Cavaliers but leading scorer Donovan Mitchell was out of the game. The Timberwolves beat Orlando but Paolo Banchero, the team’s best player, was out of the game. Minnesota beat Philly but that was a team without Tyrese Maxey and James Harden, two of the three best players on the team. Recently, the Timberwolves beat Miami but the Heat were missing a little bit of everything, including their best player Jimmy Butler. The four-game winning streak really has been a lucky stretch where each team that Minnesota beat was shorthanded.
All key hands on deck for Indiana
The Pacers are expected to have their best players available on Wednesday. Tyrese Haliburton, Bennedict Mathurin, Buddy Hield, Jalen Smith, and Myles Turner are all good to go for the game as of early Wednesday. With a 10-6 overall record and a 6-3 record when hosting, the Pacers are underrated at -110 (10/11) for the game. They could be put as short as -250 for true odds (2/5). Accordingly, the betting odds with bet365 look like very good value on Indiana.
