T-Wolves are a Risky Wager as Road Dogs

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been having serious issues getting the job done on the road, while the Washington Wizards are experiencing problems at home. Something has to give Tuesday when the teams square off in D.C. The Timberwolves have a poor history when it comes to covering the spread on the road vs the Wizards, going 2-10 ATS in their past 12 trips to Washington.

MyBookie opened the T-Wolves as 4-point road underdogs with a total of 216.

  • The Timberwolves are 0-7 SU in their last seven games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Wizards are 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games as favorite.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Wizards’ last eight games. (Avg combined score: 211.0)

Minnesota snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the tough Golden State Warriors 109-103 at home, but the Wolves are a brutal 1-9 SU in their last 10 road games, with the lone victory in that span coming against the lowly Sacramento Kings. The Timberwolves are 3-3 SU since losing all-star guard Jimmy Butler to a knee injury but 1-0 after working the newly signed Derrick Rose into the rotation.

The Wizards sit fifth in the Eastern Conference and only one game out of third place but fell to Miami 129-102 on Saturday in the second half of a back-to-back – their fourth loss in the last six games. Washington has won only two of its previous seven at Capital One Arena. The well-rested Wizards are set to play in only their third contest in the last 10 days tonight.

Betting on Minnesota as a road underdog has been a poor decision. In the Timberwolves’ last 10 as road dogs, they’re 2-8 ATS.
