T'Wolves actually heating up

Minnesota has won three of its last four games and covered the spread in four straight following a 118-103 win at Cleveland on Sunday. The Timberwolves are 14-21 on the season, 9-10 on the road, 15-18-2 against the spread and 18-17 with the over.

The Timberwolves are putting up 111.8 points per game on offense this season while shooting just 43.2 percent as a team. Defensively, the T’Wolves are giving up 114.3 points per game while opponents shoot 45.5 percent against them. The Timberwolves have been without Karl-Anthony Towns due to a knee injury. He is currently questionable to play tonight. Towns is averaging 26.5 points, 11.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game this season. Andrew Wiggins is adding 24.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per contest.

Grizz look for third straight

Memphis has also won three of its last four and two straight following a 121-114 win at Phoenix on Sunday. The back-to-back wins have been on the road against the Clippers and Suns. Memphis is 15-22 on the season, 7-12 at home, 18-18-1 against the spread and 20-17 with the over.

The Grizzlies are giving up 116.4 points per game on defense this year while opponents shoot 46.5 percent against them. Offensively, Memphis is putting up 112.4 points per game this season while shooting 46.7 percent. Ja Morant is averaging 17.6 points and 6.6 assists per game to lead the team, while Jaren Jackson Jr. is adding 17.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Timberwolves are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six road games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games as a road underdog.


The Grizzlies are 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, but are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games as a favorite.


Memphis already owns a road win and a home win over the Timberwolves this season. While both are playing well right now, the T’Wolves had recent wins over Golden State and Cleveland. Those aren’t exactly high-caliber victories. The Grizzlies have the young roster and the drive to improve. Minnesota just looks to be Minnesota for another season. While getting Towns back could certainly help, they weren’t winning with him before he got hurt in the first place. The Grizz are scoring at a good pace right now and Minnesota just can’t be trusted on the road.

NBA Prediction: Memphis Grizzlies -3.5
