Timberwolves at Kings picks and predictions

Prediction

Kings 118, Timberwolves 114

Moneyline

The Timberwolves are 13-18 on the road this season but have won 2 straight away from home and 5 of their last 8 road games overall.

The Kings are 19-12 at home and have won their last 3 at Golden 1 Center.

The home team has won 6 of the last 10 head-to-head matchups between these teams.

I lean toward Sacramento (-210) here, but you shouldn’t risk more than 2 times your potential return in what should be a close game.

PASS.

Against the spread

The Timberwolves are 14-17 ATS on the road and the Kings are only 15-15-1 ATS at home.

Minnesota has covered the spread in 2 straight games but is 5-5 ATS in its last 10.

The Kings are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games. They had a 4-game streak of covering the spread snapped with an ATS loss Friday.

Both teams are 6-4 ATS when playing on no rest.

Expect a close game between two teams playing well as of late and playing on no rest.

BET TIMBERWOLVES +5.5 (-112).

Over/Under

The Over is 4-0 in the Kings’ last 4 games playing on no rest, 5-0 in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 3-0-1 in their last 4 games following an outright win.

However, the Under is 5-0 in Minnesota’s last 5 games.

Their meetings in January finished with 227 and 229 points.

BET UNDER 237.5 (-112).
