Should You Be Fading The Timberwolves At Home?

The Minnesota Timberwolves have given fans in the Target Center plenty to be happy about this season but not their backers. Despite posting a 15-6 SU record at home this season, the T-Wolves are just 8-12-1 ATS in those contests. Jimmy Butler and company will continue their five-game homestand when they host the inconsistent Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Timberwolves are 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games as home favorites.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Timberwolves’ last 7 games.
  • The Thunder are 7-17 SU in their last 24 games on the road against teams with winning records.

The Timberwolves’ last two victories, over the New Orleans Pelicans and Cleveland Cavaliers, may constitute their best back-to-back performances of the season. In those two games, Minny averaged 121.5 points while shooting over 50 percent from the field. One of the big factors – at least offensively – has been consistent output from Andrew Wiggins. The former first overall pick has topped 20 points in each of the past two – only the sixth time he has done that all season.

The Thunder are still running hot and cold with the team going just 2-4 SU in its last six – including losses to the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks. However, OKC is riding a three-game winning streak on the road, which is their best of the season. If the Thunder expect to win Wednesday, they need to fix their defense, which has allowed 116 points per game in their past three.
