Meanwhile, the Timberwolves have won seven of their last 10 but will be looking to bounce back from a 111-104 loss against the Raptors on Sunday. Kevin Love led the way with 26 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists while Kevin Martin added 20 points, but with the game on the line, it was actually the Raptors' Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan who made the definitive plays and took the game away. With the loss, Minnesota drops back to .500 31-31 on the season, leaving them five games out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference.
In ATS trends, the Bucks are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall, while the Wolves are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games against a team below .400.
Head to head, the Bucks are 0-6 ATS in the last six meetings overall and 1-3-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Minnesota.
This is really a game that the Wolves should win and win big...
