Timberwolves Have Won 13 Straight at Target Center

The Houston Rockets have won eight in a row and have their sights on entering the all-star break on a high note with a few more wins. Next up on the docket is a road matchup vs the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. The Rockets haven’t covered against the Wolves lately, evidenced by Houston going 1-4 ATS in its previous five vs Minnesota.

MyBookie opened the Rockets as 2.5-point road favorites with a total of 222.

Shark Bites
  • The Rockets are 4-1 ATS in their last five games on the road after consecutive home games.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Timberwolves’ last seven games at home.
  • The Rockets are 11-1 SU in their last 12 games against the Timberwolves.

The Rockets have won their last four on the road and are making a brief stop in Minny after recently topping Dallas 104-97 at home. The Rockets went 13-for-45 from three-point range in that game with James Harden going 4-for-13, yet Houston’s vastly improved defense was the difference-maker once again.

The Timberwolves have won 13 in a row on home court and haven’t lost in Minneapolis since December 16. Minnesota, which is 28-29-2 ATS on the season, is 15-13-1 ATS at home on the year. In the last meeting between these teams, Houston easily dispatched Minnesota 116-98 in the Lone Star State on January 18. Harden was limited to only 10 points in that game.

Minnesota has had no issue beating good teams at home of late. In the T-Wolves’ last nine games against teams with winning records at Target Center, they’re 9-0 SU.
