Will the Raptors continue to have success vs T’Wolves?

The Toronto Raptors get no time to relax after taking down the San Antonio Spurs last night. The Raps will tip-off vs the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center and while they may not be rested, they’ve enjoyed success vs Minnesota. Toronto is 8-2 SU in the last 10 games in this matchup and opened as 3.5-point dogs.

SHARK BITES
  • Toronto is 9-4 SU in its last 13 games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of Minnesota’s last 12 games.
  • Minnesota is 4-2 ATS in the last six games vs the Raptors.

This is the Raptors seventh set of back-to-back games this season and in the second game in those slates, they’ve gotten mixed results at 3-3 SU and ATS. Toronto currently sits in second in the Eastern Conference standings and are right behind Golden State and Houston for most points per game this season. DeMar DeRozan has been outstanding for the Raps and is averaging 28.4 points per game in the month of January.

On the flipside, the Timberwolves have been steady throughout the season and are sitting in fourth in the crowded and superior Western Conference. And Minnesota is no joke at home as they’ve won eight straight games at the Target Center and Jimmy Butler has led the way averaging just over 21.8 points per game this season. Bettors should also take note that the Wolves won their last two games at home vs the Raps and were also 2-0 ATS.

The total opened at 214.5 and an OVER should be heavily considered. Both of these teams are in the top 10 in scoring and the OVER has hit in five straight games in this matchup.
