The Timberwolves are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 Sunday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Rockets are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Timberwolves last 8 overall. The over is 4-1 in Rockets last 5 Sunday games. The Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

I don't trust the Minnesota Timberwolves as much as the next guy, but this is a game they should win and the line is soft. The Houston Rockets look more and more like a team that's tanking, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 13.6 points while shooting under 43 percent from the field. If the Timberwolves are serious about being a playoff contender or whatever, these are games they can't lose. I'll lay the bucket.
