Warriors Win at Home

The Golden State Warriors are a team that is awfully tough to beat. The Warriors are at home in this game, and while they have a record that is not as good at home, as they are on the road, they are tough at home. Golden State is relentless on the offensive side. The one thing about Golden State though – they do let teams stick around, and Minnesota is talented enough to stick around. The Timberwolves are not going to win this game, but they should be able to keep the game close, and under double digits. The final bet for this game is the Minnesota Timberwolves +11 over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.
