Washington Wizards DFS rotation
Little Washington forward Kyle Kuzma The former Los Angeles Laker is scoring 21.5 points per game and missing a career-best 2.5 three-pointers per game. Kuzma is more than just a shooter as he also grabs 7.6 boards per game and 4 dimes per game. He’s a strong DFS option at Saul Forward Thursday.
If you’re looking for a wizard at small forward, consider the Wizards’ Corey Kispert. The Gonzaga alum is averaging 9.8 points per game, but he’s shooting 40.8 percent from deep this season. There’s some risk because Kispert hasn’t scored in double figures in five of his last 11 games, but he might be worth a flight on Thursday.
Minnesota Timberwolves DFS Spin
Minnesota center Karl-Anthony Towns is likely to be out for several weeks with a calf ailment. Both Kyle Anderson and Rudy Gobert are questionable for Washington on Thursday. Gobert is out with a groin injury and Anderson is struggling with a back injury. Gobert is averaging a double-double this season (13.2 points, 11.4 rebounds) and Anderson is averaging 8.4 points per game in 26 minutes per contest on the campaign.
Minnesota shooting guard Anthony Edwards Having monster year The former No. 1 player in Georgia is averaging 24.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.7 three-pointers per game for the T’Wolves this season. The price may be steep, but Edwards could have a big day against a Washington team that ranks 18th in the league in defensive efficiency.

Wizards vs Timberwolves NBA Predictions
Washington Wizards are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 23-10-1 in their last 34 games following a win by more than 10 points. Additionally, Washington is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against the Timberwolves in Minnesota. It is strange that Minnesota has alternated wins and losses in their last nine games. If that pattern holds, they’ll lose outright to Washington on Thursday. I think Minnesota will have trouble slowing down Washington’s scorers and will not be able to keep up the pace on offense. I take wizards and road points.
