The Timberwolves take on the 76ers in Philadelphia, looking to avoid back-to-back road losses. Philadelphia has won three of its last five games and is coming off of a dominant 20-point win over the Cavaliers on the road in Cleveland.

Minnesota has been getting some impressive play from No. 1 overall pick Anthony Edwards, who averaged 24.2 points per game (PPG) in the month of March.

The Timberwolves are easily the worst team in the league, but they have gone 21-27-1 against the spread (ATS) this season — slightly better than you would expect for a team with such a terrible regular-season record (12-37).

Despite the feistiness of this young Minnesota team, the scoring of Edwards and even Karl-Anthony Towns is unlikely to be a major factor against the second-best defense in the league per NBA Advanced Stats.

The obvious elephant in the room is the availability of MVP candidate Joel Embiid, who is questionable to play and could return on Saturday night.

Our latest PRO Report suggests that sharp bettors are backing the Sixers on Saturday, supporting the idea that their defense will prove too much for one of the worst offenses in the league.

Let’s take a look.
