Lowly Wolves Host Streaking Raptors

Kyle Lowry Andrew Wiggins

The red-hot Toronto Raptors have won 15 of their last 16 games to improve to 35-16 SU – right behind the Cleveland Cavaliers for second in the Eastern Conference. The Timberwolves haven’t seen the playoffs since 2004, and the Raps have spent much of that time beating up on the Western Conference cellar dwellers. Toronto has taken 20 of 21 meetings with the Wolves.

Shark Bites
  • The Timberwolves are 4-17 SU in their last 21 games.
  • The Raptors are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after a win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Raptors' last 11 games against the Timberwolves.

Minnesota is a team that gives up a ridiculous amount of three-pointers while seemingly allowing opposing teams to connect from long range at will. Minny enters the matchup with just 15 percent of their points coming from downtown, despite allowing 26 percent of other teams’ points to come off the three ball.

The T-Wolves are letting opponents shoot 40 percent from deep over a four-game stretch that’s seen them give up an average of 110.5 points per game.

Despite their recent success, the Dinos — who opened as 6-point faves — haven’t been coming through in this spot as of late. Toronto is just 1-4 ATS in their last five games when tabbed as chalk.
