The Twolves have struggled lately losing 4 of their last 5 games and are just 19-21 on the road this season but they have dominated the Rockets, in their last 2 head to head games the Twolves beat them by 18 pts. Rockets are covering the spread only the 38% of the time at home so expect the Twolves to dominate the game again.
