The Timberwolves are 1-11 ATS in their last 12 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record. The Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Timberwolves can't win at home for whatever reason, and the Grizzlies defense is sure to give this young Minny team fits. I like the Grizzlies to pick up a big road win to kind of settle things down a bit.
