Houston Rockets vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves aren't as dominant as they were earlier in the season, as the turnovers on offense remain an issue and they've allowed teams to hang around. Still, the Rockets just aren't moving the needle for me right now, and I trust them even less on the road. The Timberwolves are still 18-5 SU at home, and they've owned the Rockets over the years with wins in 8 of the last 10 meetings, and they've covered 7 of those games. Not my favorite game and the number is thick, but it's the Timberwolves or pass for me.
