Minnesota are still incapable of stability
There’s no doubt that the Timberwolves’ potential is great. The recent game against the Los Angeles Lakers, in which the Wolves won 107-83, proved that once again. True, the lineup for the Lakers is weak and not yet balanced, but let’s say that Anthony Davis played, which is enough to consider this a significant success for Minnesota. Great win, except that in the next game, the Wolves lost and lost by all margins to the Los Angeles Clippers, 102-129. In total, Chris Finch’s team now has eight wins in 12 games. Yes, they seem to have everything they need to at least contend for the playoffs. Minnesota will likely be in the race, courtesy of making the postseason even from 10th place.
Phoenix have failed to reclaim the title
The Golden State, sleeping for two years and previously beating the entire league for five years, are back, so it’s getting harder and harder to talk about the favorites for the season, but Phoenix intend to be among them. Indeed, along with LeBron and in part the Clippers, if Kawhi Leonard returns for the playoffs, Phoenix, with Chris Paul, are among the teams with at least a slim chance of stopping Steve Kerr and his extraordinary basketball.
Ahead of the Minneapolis game, Phoenix have won eight straight. There were no clear-cut contenders in that stretch, but the Suns did manage tough losses to Portland, Memphis, and Atlanta, among others.
Expert Betting Tips
The meeting with Minnesota will be Phoenix’s second in back-to-back games. That explains the rather high odds on the Suns’ victory since Minnesota had a day off. Except that the Suns played their first back-to-back game in Houston, where Chris Paul and Devin Booker only needed 30 minutes on the court to pull off a 115-89 upset of the Rockets. The Suns’ leaders should have enough time for another half hour against the Timberwolves. Given Minnesota’s performance this season, that’s as good as it gets.
We predict that Minnesota will once again fail to produce an acceptable result.
- Handicap 2 (-2.5) for 1.87;
- W2 and Total Under 220.5 for 3.00;
- Phoenix to win by 7-9 points for 9.00.
