Preview

The Phoenix Suns continue at home and will host the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Footprint Center on Tuesday night. These teams faced each other 3 times last season and the Suns won all games but covered the spread on 2 of them.  

 

Phoenix Suns

The Suns have won 4 games in a row and are 2-0 at home with a 5-1 recor overall ranking first in the Pacific Division. They outscored the Rockets 124-109 last Saturday in Phoenix.  Devin Booker scored 30 points and he's averaging more than 29 points through six games and shooting 52% from the field. Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) missed his first game of the season. Williams said the fifth-year player will be out at least a week and then be reevaluated.

Devin Booker is leading the team averaging 29.3 points while Chris Paul is making 10.7 assists per game for the Suns. Ayton is averaging 19 points and 8 rebounds for Phoenix.

In their last 10 games, the Suns are 6-4, averaging 109.1 points, 41.5 rebounds, 27.1 assists, 7.7 steals and 4.2 blocks per game while shooting 46.3% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 106.5 points per game. 

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves get here with a 4-3 record and are 1-1 on the road so far this season ranking 3rd in the Northwest. They struggled in their last game vs Spurs shooting for only 13.8% from long distance as they made 4 of 29 shots in the 107-98 loss against San Antonio. Karl-Anthony Towns led Minnesota with 26 points and Anthony Edwards had 18. Rudy Gobert was held to nine points and 12 rebounds.

Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 21.3 points, 8 rebounds and 5.3 assists for the Timberwolves. Anthony Edwards is averaging 23 points over the last 7 games for Minnesota.

In their last 10 games the Twolves are 5-5, averaging 114.5 points, 42.1 rebounds, 26.3 assists, 8.8 steals and 4.3 blocks per game while shooting 47.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 113.6 points per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Minnesota are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against Phoenix.

Minnesota are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against Phoenix.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Minnesota's last 6 games on the road.

Minnesota are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games when playing on the road against Phoenix.

Phoenix are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

Phoenix are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.

Phoenix are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Timberwolves have been great offensively averaging 114 points per game but they have allowed over 113 points per game in their first 7 games of the season. On the other hand, the Suns have been focused in playing good defense and have allowed only 106 points per game so far but they'll be missing their startin Center in DeAndre Ayton. In the last 10 head to head games the average score is 110-113.8 so I expect a close game tonight and with Ayton out for the Suns the Twolves will be in advantage for rebounds. I'm going with the Twolves to cover the spread.

PICK: Timberwolves +4 (-110)
