The Phoenix Suns and Minnesota Timberwolves meet Sunday in NBA action at the Target Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Suns vs Timberwolves prediction.

Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns have been in fine form as they’ve won nine of their last 13 games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after outlasting the Kings in a 108-107 road win on Friday. Kevin Durant led the team with 28 points on 11 of 20 shooting, Devin Booker added 21 points with six assists, Bradley Beal scored 20 points while Grayson Allen chipped in with 19 points. As a team, the Suns shot 52 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they struggled to get going and trailed for most of the contest, before they took over in the fourth quarter to escape with the unlikely comeback victory on the road.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in great shape as they’ve won nine of their last 12 games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after sneaking past the Hawks in a 109-106 home win on Friday. Rudy Gobert led the team with 25 points, 19 rebounds and five blocks, Naz Reid added 19 points off the bench while Mike Conley tallied 13 points with six rebounds and 10 assists. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 48 percent from the field and 10 of 37 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they squandered a 17-point lead, before they made up for it at the end of the fourth quarter where they played great defense to escape with the narrow win.

  • The underdogs have covered the spread in seven of the last eight games between the Suns and Timberwolves at Target Center.
  • Each of the Timberwolves’ last four home games against Western Conference opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Phoenix Suns Team Facts

  • The Suns have won each of their seven previous day games against the Timberwolves following a road win.

Suns vs Timberwolves prediction

The Suns could be shorthanded here with Drew Eubanks listed as questionable, while the Timberwolves are keeping eyes on Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, who are both listed as questionable for this one. This is certainly a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff. But as it stands, I have to lean towards the Suns to take advantage of a Timberwolves team that could be missing two of their best players.
