The Timberwolves are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 15-6 in Timberwolves last 21 overall. The under is 23-7-1 in Pelicans last 31 overall. The Timberwolves are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in New Orleans.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are coming off a strong week, and Edwards is looking more and more like an all-star caliber player who could soon be the face of this franchise. The New Orleans Pelicans continue to be possibly the biggest disappointment in the league, and that includes losing at home by an average of 3.1 points. If the Timberwolves weren't still the Timberwolves, this line would be a lot steeper. I'll lay the bucket.
