The Timberwolves are slightly favored over the Jazz tonight
While the Jazz and Timberwolves might have the same amount of wins, Utah has lost two more games when compared to Minnesota so far this season. Edwards and his squad might not be considered legitimate contenders at the moment. However, we shouldn’t look away from the talent the team possesses. Especially considering that they recently handed the Denver Nuggets their first loss of this season.
The Timberwolves are clearly more talented when compared to the Jazz. This is taking the most recent addition of John Collins to their roster into consideration. While it is undoubtedly possible for the Utah Jazz to catch the Minnesota Timberwolves off guard, they will not be expected to do so tonight.
