I get the Minnesota Timberwolves are on the end of a back to back and the Suns are as healthy as they've been all year. We're finally going to see Durant, Beal and Booker on the court together. However, this line is disrespectful toward how well the Timberwolves are playing right now. Also, even with injuries, the Suns have lost 5 of their last 7 games overall and 4 straight at home. Just from current form alone, it's hard to turn down this many points with the Timberwolves.
