The Minnesota Timberwolves welcome a hungry Memphis Grizzlies squad to Minnesota on Tuesday night. For up to the minute odds and trends on this game please visit Top Bet sportsbook.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are not playing for much other than pride at this point as they are currently 13 games under the .500 mark and sit well outside of the playoff picture. The Timberwolves have played well most of the time on offense this season, but have come up short often in their defensive effort. They are giving up more than 100 points per game on average on the season. They have lost a staggering 10 straight games heading into tonight and they lost their most recent game to the Pacers by a score of 111-88.
On the other hand the Grizzlies currently sit ten games over the .500 mark on the season, but they are still jockeying for that all important playoff seeding. The Grizzlies are not a prolific offensive team, but they do feature a stout defense. They have only let up 93 points per game this season on average. They are coming off of an inexplicable loss to the Hornets the last time out by a score of 88-75 on Sunday.
The Timberwolves are just 2-9-1 against the spread in their last 12 games, and Minnesota is just 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games. The Grizzlies have won eight of their last 11 games overall, and Memphis is 5-0 in their last five games against the Timberwolves.
We do not agree with the theory that the Timberwolves are due for any great performance. Especially since the team they are playing tonight is looking to get back on track after a disappointing loss. We like the Grizzlies as the road favorite in this one but before placing the wager pick up sportsbook promotion codes.
