The Minnesota Timberwolves need a victory here after splitting their last 10 games.

Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 20.3 points and 11.5 rebounds while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 18.8 points and 1.7 assists.

The Suns are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Northwest and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Timberwolves are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games, 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Western Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Suns are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota, the home team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Minnesota.
Neither one of these teams plays much defense and the over is a popular trend when they meet. The Timberwolves aren't consistent enough to be laying double-digit points, and the Suns have been blown out quite a bit this season. So, instead of playing with the chalk, I'll side with the over. Both teams should get whatever they want offensively, putting both teams well over the 100 mark.
