NBA Public Betting Trends
The under is 4-1 in the last five T-Wolves games on one day of rest. Minnesota is 13-37-1 ATS in the last 51 meetings.
The over is 4-1 in the last five Trail Blazers home games. Portland is 18-7-1 ATS in the last 26 home meetings versus the Timberwolves.
Minnesota is going to have some turmoil as long as Butler is around to stir the pot. He is basically playing whenever he wants on back-to-backs, but with a day off yesterday he should be in the lineup tonight. Even though the Blazers played last night, I have to like them at home against a T-Wolves squad that is 0-4 on the road. Portland looked good in the fourth quarter yesterday and the hope would be that there is a carry over affect.
