The Timberwolves are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Timberwolves last 5 overall. The over is 9-4-1 in Bucks last 14 overall. The Timberwolves are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are a bad basketball team and the Bucks are one of the better teams in the league when playing well. The problem is the Bucks aren't playing well and actually losing their last five games by an average of 0.8 points. I'm not laying big chalk with the Bucks, even though they should win this game comfortably. It's the Timberwolves and the points or pass for me.
