Timberwolves Have Gone UNDER in Six Straight Road Games

UPDATE: Jimmy Butler has been ruled out of tonight's game with a knee injury.

The Los Angeles Clippers saw a six-game winning streak come to an end in the form of a 125-113 loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday but will attempt to start a new streak against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Timberwolves are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games with one day off between games.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Clippers’ last eight games with one day off between games.
  • The Timberwolves are 5-16 SU in their last 21 games against the Clippers.

L.A. plays consecutive games against teams in the top four of their conference at home this week starting with tonight’s game. Lou Williams has been the main reason for the Clippers’ recent surge, as the veteran is averaging 30.1 points in 10 games this month. Williams became the first NBA player since steals were introduced in 1973-74 to notch at least 30 points, 10 steals and seven assists in a game when he broke the franchise record for steals in a game with 10 on Saturday.

The T-Wolves have won nine straight games at home but have dropped each of their last four on the road, which is not exactly inspiring for their backers with Minnesota’s next three games coming at home. Jamal Crawford and Jimmy Butler missed Saturday’s game against the Toronto Raptors and are currently listed as day to day.

When the Timberwolves hit the road, the UNDER is paying out for totals bettors. Minny has gone UNDER in each of its last six games away from home.
