The Capital One Arena will host the NBA clash between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Washington Wizards on Monday (November 28).

Both teams come into the game with an identical 10-10 record on the season. The Timberwolves are tenth in the Western Conference standings, while the Wizards are eighth in the East. Recent form hasn't been great for either team, as Minnesota has lost their last two and the Wizards have lost three on the trot.

The Timberwolves are coming off a humbling 137-114 loss to reigning champions Golden State Warriors. It was thorough domination by San Francisco, as their backcourt combined for 70 points. Despite fielding a size-heavy line-up, they were were outclassed on the glass, as the Warriors had 16 more rebounds.

Anthony Edwards has shone for the Timberwolves this season. He leads the team in scoring, with 22.3 points per game, and six boards and four assists a night. He has shot the ball efficiently too, going 56% in true shooting.

The Wizards, meanwhile, haven't been in the best of form recently, winning only two of their last six games. In their last game, they lost 130-121 to the Boston Celtics. The Wizards are a top-ten rebounding team in the league, with the likes of Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Kuzma dominating the glass.

Their offense hasn't impressed as much, with Bradley Beal being the only backcourt player with over ten points per game.

Timberwolves vs Wizards Betting Prediction

The Timberwolves should win this one. They're a much more well-rounded team, and their size could cancel out the rebounding prowess the Wizards possess. Washington is heavily dependent on Bradley Beal to create openings, but their offense gets very dull when he's locked down.

Timberwolves: -110
