NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games versus the Western Conference. Miami is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 road games.

Minnesota

The Timberwolves are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. Minnesota is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games versus the Southeast Division.

Prediction: 

Minnesota had a day off between games, while Miami expended a ton of energy to come back at a very good Milwaukee squad. Towns is on another level right now as the T-Wolves have put a lot of responsibility in his hands and he is rising to the challenge. I like Minnesota to win handily here and improve to 3-0.
