The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Lakers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 6-2 in Timberwolves last 8 overall. The under is 7-3 in Lakers last 10 overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Minnesota Timberwolves aren't a team I'm running to the window to back, but they have shown signs of life lately, which includes wins over the Trail Blazers and Pelicans. The Los Angeles Lakers are on the end of a back to back, and while they're coming off a win, they have struggled these last couple of weeks, and they're just 8-12 against the spread at home. There's better options out there on Tuesday's card, but I'll grab the points with the Timberwolves if forced to pick here.
