The Minnesota Timberwolves pay a visit to the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena on Wednesday night in NBA action.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are starting to heat up now as they are currently riding a four-game win streak after taking down the Rockets in a 104-96 road win on Sunday. D’Angelo Russell led the team with 22 points and six assists, Anthony Edwards added 21 points while Rudy Gobert tallied 18 points with 11 rebounds. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 47 percent from the field and 10 of 28 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sluggish start and fell into an early 20-point deficit, but they stayed in the fight and made their run in the fourth quarter where they outscored the Rockets by 27-15 to complete the comeback and keep their win streak alive.
Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been in rough shape as they’ve lost 11 of their last 14 games overall and they will be hoping for a better performance after getting smashed by the 76ers in a 147-116 road loss last night. Rodney McGruder, Saddiq Bey and Jaden Ivey each scored 17 points, Alec Burks scored 16 points while Hamidou Diallo chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Pistons shot just 40 percent from the field and 14 of 39 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and trailed by 22 points going into halftime, before they leaked 42 points in the third quarter to fall behind by as many as 41 points at one stage.
Looking at the betting trends, the Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. The Pistons are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
Head to head, the over is 8-1 in the last nine meetings in Detroit and the Timberwolves are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall.
The Timberwolves are still missing Jordan McLaughlin and they are keeping an eye on Anthony Edwards who is day to day, while the Pistons have listed Isaiah Stewart, Jalen Duren and Bojan Bogdanovic as day to day for this one. The Timberwolves are banged up at the moment, but they are a team on the rise, while the Pistons are clearly headed in the opposite direction with 11 losses in their past 14 games. The Timberwolves are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall and I think that trend continues here as the Timberwolves get the win and cover at the reasonable line.
