The Washington Wizards play host to the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Capital One Arena on Saturday night.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been in terrible form lately as they’ve lost 10 of their past 11 games and they will be hoping to put a halt to a six-game skid after getting dropped by the Bulls in a 133-126 overtime road loss on Wednesday. Malik Beasley led the team with 25 points, Karl-Anthony Towns added 24 points with eight rebounds and five assists, Anthony Edwards scored 21 points with six assists while Jarred Vanderbilt chipped in with 16 points on five of five shooting. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 38 from the 3-point line as they rallied back from a 10-point deficit late in the fourth quarter to tie the game late, only to go ice-cold in overtime where they managed just seven points.

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in terrific form lately as they’ve won six of their past seven games and they will be looking to stay hot after outlasting the Nuggets in a 112-110 road win on Thursday. Bradley Beal led the team with 33 points on 10 of 19 shooting, Rui Hachimura added 20 points on nine of 16 shooting while Russell Westbrook racked up a triple-double of 16 points with 10 rebounds and 10 assists. As a team, the Wizards shot 47 percent from the field and eight of 26 from the 3-point line as they held the Nuggets to just five points in the final 5:07 to escape with the narrow win as the Nuggets blew a crucial 4-on-1 fast break opportunity with time expiring.

Looking at the betting trends, the Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record and 0-6 ATS in their last six games overall. The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a win and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Head to head, the over is 6-0 in the last six meetings overall, the Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall and the Timberwolves are 4-11 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Washington.

The Timberwolves haven’t been able to buy a win these days and they’re coming into this one fresh off a tough overtime loss to the Bulls, while the Wizards have come to life with six wins in their last seven games and just took down the Nuggets. I keep expecting the Wizards to fall back to their old habits, but they’ve been great in recent games and should be good enough to stay hot with another win here.
