"Oklahoma" will visit "Minnesota" on March 23. Will the "Thunders" take the victory away from Minneapolis? Read in our prediction below.

Minnesota Timberwolves

With Chris Finch’s arrival on the coaching bridge, "Minnesota" started playing a little better. The "Wolves" have won two of their last four games, beating "Portland" (114-112) and "Phoenix" (123-119). But the team does not need a lot of victories, as the "Timberwolves" are most likely trying to take the last position in their conference. This will obviously give them a big advantage in their next draft.

It is worth noting that the home win over "Portland" was the first for "Minnesota" in a month and a half. Before that, they had lost seven matches in a row.

Oklahoma City Thunder

"Oklahoma Thunders" still have a chance of making it to the playoffs. At the moment, the "Thunders" occupy 12th place in the West. They are separated from the playoff zone by just one victory. For now, the "Thunders" are not planning to merge their matches and fight to get into the elimination meetings. This statement can be confirmed by their last away victory over "Houston" (114-112).

Note that "Oklahoma" will play this match without several important players. For instance, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Al Horford will not play in this meeting.

Statistics

  • "Oklahoma" has won 4 of their last 5 head-to-head meetings.
  • "Thunders” have won 3 of their last 6 away matches.
  • In 3 of the last 4 head-to-head meetings, the opponents did not break 228.5 points.

Our Prediction

The absence of Gilgeous-Alexander and Horford significantly weakened the attacking power of "Oklahoma". For example, in the last match, the "Thunders" scored only 114 points. "Thunders" did not impress with their performance before, so we doubt that they will demonstrate a spectacular game.

"Minnesota" seems to be the favorite, but it is unknown whether the team needs this victory, so we suggest taking a risk and giving preference to the guests.

Our betting option is the victory of "Oklahoma", taking into account the overtime for the odds of 2.19 on 1xbet
