The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 106.3 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 115.6 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 22 points and 4.3 assists while D’Angelo Russell is averaging 19.9 points and 5.3 assists. Malik Beasley is the third double-digit scorer and Anthony Edwards is grabbing three rebounds. The Minnesota Timberwolves are shooting 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75.4 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Timberwolves are allowing 37.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.6 rebounds per game.
The San Antonio Spurs look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 111.2 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 112.3 points on 47.6 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 19.5 points and 4.8 rebounds while Keldon Johnson is averaging 15 points and 7.5 rebounds. Dejounte Murray is the third double-digit scorer and Patty Mills is dishing 2.8 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 39.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game.
The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Spurs are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games as a favorite and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss. The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in San Antonio and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Minnesota Timberwolves aren't a team you want to back, as they're horrible SU and ATS, and they lose by an average of 14 points on the road. However, the Spurs are much more attractive in the underdog role, and these clubs played two very tight games back in January, which includes a Timberwolves win in the last matchup. This feels like a lot of points to lay with the Spurs. I'll grab the points with the Timberwolves.
