The Pelicans are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Timberwolves are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The under is 12-4 in Pelicans last 16 overall. The under is 6-1 in Timberwolves last 7 overall. The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota.
The New Orleans Pelicans haven't been able to do anything right through three games, and they just lost to the Pelicans a couple of days ago by seven points. The Minnesota Timberwolves are a team I said should finally turn the corner this season, and they're off to a fine start, especially on the defensive end, where they're fourth in field goal percentage and third in three point percentage. The Timberwolves have the ability to push for a playoff spot this season. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the home team.
