The Minnesota Timberwolves will be at home tonight and will welcome the Phoenix Suns to the Twin Cities. Please check out the latest NBA odds and trends at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Suns have been playing a lot better lately and are coming off of a win against a Lakers squad that was void of Kobe Bryant. Steve Nash had 13 points and 11 assists while Shannon Brown, vs. his former team, scored 24 points. Michael Redd was a spark off the bench scoring 23 points in 26 minutes. The Suns are just one game behind the Nuggets for the 8th playoff spot out West as they have won 4 of their last 5.
Since Ricky Rubio was sidelined with an injury the Timberwolves have lost 13 of their last 17 games. The Wolves even lost last time out to the Hornets by a score of 99-90 despite 29 points and 12 rebounds from Kevin Love. Other than injuries to their point guards, defense has been a big problem for Minnesota. They are giving up an eye-popping 107.5 points per game during the current losing streak.
Head to head the Suns have beaten the Wolves 5 straight times and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 in Minnesota.
We were surprised and thought the Suns would be giving a lot more points in hthis one. The injuries just seem to be taking a toll on Minnesota as they are struggling to evene score points which was a major strength for them earlier in the season. We like the Suns giving the points in this one at sports books.
