Minnesota is 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 road games, 1-5 against the spread against the NBA Central, and 3-11 against the spread against the Eastern Conference. The road team is 5-2-1 against the spread in the last eight meeting sof these two.
Neither of these teams are known for putting up big numbers so I look for this one to stay under the total. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
