The under is 4-1 in Kings last 5 home games.

The over is 6-2 in the last 8 matchups.  The Timberwolves are in a bad stretch of basketball here, having lost 10 in a row.  Karl-Anthony Towns is also questionable for the game.  The Kings have lost 4 in a row and 5 of their last 6.  Neither offense has been able to score at a consistent rate, as the under has been profitable for both teams. The Timberwolves overall on the season are 10-17-2 ATS, while the Kings are 16-14 ATS.  Both teams have been struggling, so this has the potential to be a sloppy game.  I'll take the under in this one.  Final score prediction, the Kings win and the total goes under, 108-103.
