The Timberwolves are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 Friday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Grizzlies are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Timberwolves last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Grizzlies last 6 overall. The Timberwolves are 8-21 ATS in the last 29 meetings in Memphis and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to provide very little betting value, as they're losing their last five games by an average of eight points while shooting 40.7 percent from the field. The Timberwolves lose on the road by an average of 7.8 points. The Memphis Grizzlies aren't the most consistent team in the world, but they are 15-10 against the spread at home and are 14-7 against the spread as a favorite. Thick line, but backing the Timberwolves isn't an option right now.
