Timberwolves are Double-Digit Chalk vs 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t strangers to losing, and the 2016-17 NBA campaign has been more of the same for the long-suffering fan bases. The struggling clubs will collide in Minny on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 4-14 SU in its last 18 games in this matchup.
  • The Timberwolves are 2-5 SU and ATS in their last seven games.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the 76ers' last six games.

Sportsbooks opened the Wolves as 11-point home faves with a total of 214.

Philadelphia’s struggles away from the City of Brotherly Love are well known. The Sixers are 0-4 SU on the road this year while dropping 20 in a row on the road dating back to last season. Center Joel Embiid is slated to play after being rested in Philly’s 109-102 victory over Washington on Wednesday.

The Timberwolves’ Achilles heel has been the third quarter, and the 37-18 shellacking they took in the frame against the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday is a great example of that. Charlotte went 13-for-22 from the floor in the quarter while draining six 3-pointers in that span. Minnesota shot an ugly 4-for-22.

Slowing down standout small forward Andrew Wiggins is easier said than done, which means Philadelphia will have its hands full tonight. Wiggins is averaging 32.6 points over his last five contests.
