The Timberwolves are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Hornets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 Friday games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 3-1-1 in Hornets last 5 overall. The under is 6-1 in Timberwolves last 7 road games.

I bash the Minnesota Timberwolves more than anybody and the jury is still out on their core and if this roster is capable of getting over the hump and finally being a factor in the West. I will say that beating the Nets on the road when Kyrie is going off was a nice start to the season. The Charlotte Hornets are coming off a surprise opening game as well and one that could have you questioning what you think of this team, but something tells me they won't make 23 threes again. If the Minnesota Timberwolves are out to prove they're different this season and we can go back to putting stock into Wiggins, they win this game. The Charlotte Hornets are still one of th worst rosters in the league until proven otherwise in a larger sample size. I'll eat the small chalk.
