The under is 9-3 in Raptors last 12 road games. The over is 35-16 in Timberwolves last 51 overall. The Raptors are 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Minnesota and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors have been winning and covering machines over the last month or so, and it's hard to turn them down in the underdog role with the rest advantage. However, the Minnesota Timberwolves are playing their best ball of the season, and they need to win games like this at home if they're going to be taken seriously as a playoff contender. Of course, I was high on the Timberwolves since the start of the season, so there's a soft spot for this club. Either way, I'll lay the bucket.
