Spurs Look to Stay Perfect on the Road in Minny

The San Antonio Spurs have yet to lose on the road this season, and they’ll look to improve to 13-0 away from Texas against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center on Tuesday. Sportsbooks opened the Wolves as 6-point home dogs with an OVER/UNDER of 204.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Spurs' last 10 games.
  • The Timberwolves are 0-8 ATS in their last eight games as home underdogs.
  • The Spurs are 6-1 SU in their last seven games against teams with losing records.

San Antonio has unsurprisingly owned this series, winning each of the past seven meetings with the Timberwolves with five of the victories being by more than 20 points.

Minny halted a four-game losing skid against Charlotte in its last outing largely due to the contributions of talented big man Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns is averaging 31.3 points and 13.7 rebounds over the past three games, including a career-best 47 points against the New York Knicks on Wednesday.

Longtime Spurs point guard Tony Parker will sit out tonight. Parker left Monday’s 97-96 triumph over Milwaukee with an apparent knee injury that coach Gregg Popovich said could keep him out for an extended period.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The visiting San Antonio Spurs betting line opened this morning as -6-point favorites in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at Odds Shark (including Bovada), while the total was hovering around 204.5 at BetOnline and other betting odds shops.
