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

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been in great shape as they’ve won nine of their last 11 games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after making light work of the lowly Raptors in a 133-85 home win on Wednesday. Anthony Edwards led the team with 28 points and six assists, Naz Reid added 23 points while Rudy Gobert tallied 11 points with 15 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 51 percent from the field and a sizzling 20 of 43 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Raptors from the start, taking a 16-point lead into halftime that only grew as the game wore on.

Phoenix Suns

Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have been in fine form as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after blowing past the Cavaliers in a 122-101 home win on Wednesday. Devin Booker led the team with 40 points and eight assists, Kevin Durant added 32 points with six rebounds and seven assists, while Royce O’Neale connected on five 3-pointers to finish with 17 points. As a team, the Suns shot 50 percent from the field and 18 of 33 from the 3-point line as they caught fire early and were never truly threatened after exploding for 72 points in a dominant first half. The Suns will play against the Pelicans after this game.

Phoenix Suns Team Facts

  • The Suns have won 20 of their last 21 home games against Northwest Division opponents following a win.
  • The Suns have covered the spread in each of their last seven games against the Timberwolves.
  • Nine of the Suns’ last 10 home games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Minnesota Timberwolves Team Facts

  • The Timberwolves have won each of their last five games as underdogs following a home win.
  • The Timberwolves have covered the spread in eight of their last nine road games against Western Conference opponents.
  • Each of the Timberwolves’ last four games as underdogs following a home win have gone UNDER the total points line.

Timberwolves vs Suns prediction

The Timberwolves are still missing Karl-Anthony Towns and Jaylen Clark, while the Suns are keeping an eye on Jusuf Nurkic who is questionable with left calf soreness. The Timberwolves have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league lately, and they would’ve taken plenty of confidence from their 48-point win over the Raptors on Wednesday. The Suns have been in comparable form and just blew past the Cavaliers in their last outing. It’s hard to split these two squads at the moment, so while I wouldn’t be surprised if the Timberwolves pulled off the minor upset. I am sticking with the Suns to get the job done at home if Nurkic is able to suit up.
