The over is 25-8 in Timberwolves last 33 overall. The over is 8-1-1 in Pacers last 10 overall. The Timberwolves are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Indiana and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Minnesota Timberwolves and decent sized chalk makes me hesitant because they're just not a team you can trust yet in these spots. I love the Timberwolves as small favorites or underdogs, but I always pause in these spots. With that said, the Indiana Pacers just can't get out of their own way, as they're losing their last five games by an average of 9.8 points while allowing 50 percent shooting from the field. Also, the Timberwolves win in the favorite role by an average of nine points. I'll lay the points here if forced to pick, as it's a fade from the Pacers more than anything.
