The Minnesota Timberwolves need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 110.2 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 118.1 points on 48.4 percent shooting. Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 24.7 points and 4.6 assists while Malik Beasley is averaging 19.6 points and 2.4 assists.

The Sacramento Kings need a win after losing nine of their last 10 games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 114.3 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 118.6 points on 49 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 25.3 points and 3.5 rebounds while Buddy Hield is averaging 16.5 points and 3.1 assists.

The Timberwolves are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games. The Kings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Timberwolves last 7 overall. The under is 15-6 in Kings last 21 overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings have shown more promise this season, but I'm not running to the window to lay chalk with a team that's lost nine of their last 10 games and is losing their last five games by an average of 5.8 points while allowing 50.5 percent shooting. The Minnesota Timberwolves have obvious issues of their own, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 12.4 points, but at least we're getting points with them. In a battle between two losing teams going nowhere fast, I'll lean toward the free buckets.
