BETTING TRENDS

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

Phoenix are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against Minnesota.

Phoenix are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.

Phoenix are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Minnesota.

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

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Minnesota's last 6 games.

Minnesota are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Minnesota's last 12 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Timberwolves have been great offensively averaging 113 points per game but they have allowed over 114 points per game in their first 11 games of the season. On the other hand, the Suns have been focused in playing good defense and have allowed only 103 points per game so far but they just lost Cameron Johnson for 1-2 months due to surgery. The Twolves lost by 9 points vs Suns in Phoenix earlier this season and have struggled offensively in their last 2 games at home and with the Suns playing tough defense I think the best play is the under.
