The Heat are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Timberwolves are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Heat last 9 overall. The under is 4-1 in Timberwolves last 5 overall. The Heat are 9-3-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Minnesota and 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Miami Heat are on the end of a back to back, but they've covered seven straight in that spot, so I'm not worried about it. The Minnesota Timberwolves are enjoying a hot week where they've won four straight games and are winning their last five games by an average of 17.8 points. However, I still don't trust the Timberwolves against quality teams. This is also a bit of a revenge spot for Butler, as he had a nasty breakup with Minnesota and still has some bad blood with some former teammates. Give me the Heat.
