The Tuesday free play on UNC Greensboro was postponed due to the nasty storm hitting the East. Note I will NOT be playing Greensboro in today’s rescheduled game. I don’t like the fact the team had to sit around a hotel on Tuesday, and I’ve decided to just stay away from the game completely. Today’s comp is an NBA call.

605 TIMBERWOLVES at 606 CELTICS

Take: 605 TIMBERWOLVES +6

It took longer than many speculated, but it sure looks like this youthful Minnesota squad is starting to put it together. There’s no denying the talent on this roster and indications are the Wolves are beginning to jell. I think they’re going to be a good spread side down the stretch drive.

It appears as though the oddsmakers have reached a similar conclusion as the huge points are evidently no longer available. Tonight’s game is a good example as the Celtics are only favored by six points.

But I think even six might be too many for Boston to be spotting here. The Celtics are obviously no picnic to fade. But as soon as I saw this betting line, I knew the square side with the bettors would be Boston, and all early information says that’s exactly the case.

I would not put this call in the contrarian category, though, and in fact I guess I won’t be surprised if this game ends ups being a Pros vs. Joes battleground. I’m expecting the public to get lured in by what seems like a cheap number on Boston. But I also feel the sharps are going to show up on what right now looks to be an underrated Minnesota team. I’ll back that opinion up by making the Timberwolves plus the points today’s free play.
