ATS Matchup Stats | Gambling Insight!

This season the Pelicans are 12-12 at home and the Timberwolves are 10-16 on the road.

In their last games the Pelicans beat the Atlanta Hawks 105-100 and the Timberwolves lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 106-97.

Kevin Love missed the Timberwolves last game with a minor injury and they are hoping the All Star FW can go tonight, as they are 0-2 without him in the lineup.

Both teams are 6-4 in their last 10 games.

The Pelicans have a mediocre defense ranking 17th in the league in opponents’ points allowed and they will be facing a Minnesota offense that is the 3rd highest scoring one on the league.

Anthony Davis leads the Pelicans in scoring and is averaging 20.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.3 blocks and in their recent win over the Hawks he went for 27 points and grabbed 10 boards. Love is not only questionable, but starting C Nikola Pekovic (18 ppg 9 rpg) is Out and the T-Wolves will have to step up their interior D to keep Davis from having a big game.

Minnesota relies on their offense, as they only rank 19th in the league on defense. If Love cannot go Kevin Martin and Corey Brewer, who are the only 2 other players averaging in double figures, have to step up and carry the offense.
[ad-6571516]
The Pelicans are also dealing with some injuries and backup G Anthony Morrow has stepped up averaging 18 ppg in his last 2 games and shooting lights out from 3-pt range (80% 3-pt FG%).

The Timberwolves have won both match ups against the Pelicans this season, but both of those games were in Minnesota with Love on the court. Overall, the Timberwolves have won 4 straight facing the Pelicans dating back to last season.

Betting Trends

The Timberwolves are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following a S.U. loss, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, and they have an Over record of 4-1-1 in their last 6 road games.

The Pelicans are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record, and they have an Under record of 9-3 in their last 12 vs. a team with a losing S.U. record.

The Timberwolves are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games facing the Pelicans.

In the last 6 games between these 2 teams the total has gone Over 5 times.

Jason’s Pick:

This one is a tough call because Love is a question mark, but with Davis playing well and the T-Wolves 6-games under .500 on the road I am going with New Orleans to win and cover.
