Minnesota has the second ranked offense in the league right now, putting up an average of 107.6 points per game. Kevin Love is having a tremendous season for the Timberwolves, averaging 25.9 points per game on the year.

The Timberwolves are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games on Sundays, and the Timberwolves are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games against the Southwest.
The Spurs are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games following an ATS win, and the Spurs are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games following an outright win of more than ten points.
I like the Spurs here, but the value looks to be on the total. There should be plenty of points scored here on Sunday as the Timberwolves are going to have to rely on their offense to beat the Spurs as I just don’t see the T-Wolves stopping this San Antonio attack. Look for plenty of points here on Sunday, going over this already high number.
