The Timberwolves are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Bucks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 7-1 in Timberwolves last 8 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Bucks last 4 home games. The Timberwolves are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Milwaukee and 4-11 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are the better team and should be favored at home, but this is a lot of points to leave on the table with a good Timberwolves team. I mentioned a few times in the preseason that this is the year the Timberwolves should make that leap, given the talent on the roster. Through three games, the Timberwolves are off to a decent start, and a lot of it has come on defense. The Timberwolves are top-10 in points allowed, field goal percentage allowed, and three point percentage allowed. I see value in the Timberwolves in the underdog role this season.
