Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Chicago Bulls vs Minnesota Timberwolves
The Wolves will welcome the Bulls to Target Center they are coming off a win against the Nets while the Bulls are coming off a win against the Heat. Game tips off at 8:00 PM ET.
Chicago Bulls's Latest Performance :
The Bulls have now won two games in a row as they were able to hand the Heat their 4th loss in a row. Lavine is striving on his new team as he will be making his return to Minnesota as the leader of the Bulls I expect him to have a huge scoring game in this one as he will be playing with a chip on his shoulder. He is averaging 25 points per contest and he is isn’t forcing his shots and basically reacting to what the defense is giving to him. He is no longer just a dunker he is developing an all-around game. He will be looking forward to going up against Wiggins. The Bulls are a young team on the rise and they might have found their new franchise player in Lavine, they have some young players get the job done potentially become great in the future such as Arcidiacono who has taken the opportunity to play point guard and now is playing regular mins if the Bulls can keep this young core together and add a proven star they should be a team we should keep an eye on.
Minnesota Timberwolves 's Latest Performance :
The Wolves were able to get back to winning ways after beating the Nets in their last game. The Wolves are 3-2 since trading away Butler to the Sixers. They are hoping to keep the momentum going against the young Bulls. The Wolves aren’t bereft of positive developments in 2018-19—mostly because Derrick Rose became a legitimate asset on the offensive end again and hope that Wiggins can turn into a great scorer in the league because what the Wolves have right now is a great system in place with Towns being the focal point of their offense. Towns is averaging 20.2 points, 14.6 boards, 2.2 dimes, 1.2 blocks, 0.4 steals, and 1.6 treys. It will be his chance to shine with Butler gone. Playing against the Bulls will mean Wiggins will have to find a way to contain Lavine his old teammate who is carrying the Bulls offensively.
How Chicago Bulls & Minnesota Timberwolves Matchup.

Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference.
Against The Spread Selection: Minnesota Timberwolves
My reason for the pick :
The Wolves should be able to win at home against the Bulls in this game they are a really good team at home this season going 7-3 despite losing their last two. Towns will have his way offensively against the Bulls as Lopez will be overmatched down in the post. Lavine will have a great game against his former team but it will be hard for the Bulls to win on the road with him being the only volume scorer on the team. Go with the Wolves winning at home in this game.
