The Timberwolves are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 0 days rest. The Kings are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest 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 Minnesota Timberwolves have shown signs of life lately with wins in three of their last six games and they just beat the Kings last night. The Sacramento Kings are not a team you should be looking to lay chalk with, as they've lost 10 of their last 11 games and are losing their last five games by an average of 5.8 points while not playing a lick of defense. As we did yesterday, it's the Timberwolves and the free points or pass. The Kings in the favorite role is laughable.
