Phoenix Suns vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Preview

NBA lines have the Suns as 2.5-road favorites with a total of 209.5.

In their last games the Suns beat the L.A. Lakers 125-105 and the T-Wolves lost to the New Orleans Hornets 99-90.

This season the Suns are 30-26 ATS with an O/U record of 21-35 and the T-Wolves are 27-30 ATS with an O/U record of 27-28-2.

The Suns are coming off a win and have won 5 of their last 6 games.

It is not only bad that the T-Wolves have lost 5 straight and their last 4 games have come against teams that are not in the playoff race.

The loss of Ricky Rubio was a big blow to Minnesota this season and backup Luke Ridnour is likely out for his 3rd straight game with an ankle injury.

The T-Wolves defense has really been struggling giving up an average of 107.5 ppg in their 5-game losing streak. That is not good facing a Suns’ team that is playing with confidence and has averaged 110 ppg in their last 4 games. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Steve Nash continues to play well, but the Suns are getting solid play from Michael Redd and Shannon Brown. Redd has averaged 18.3 ppg in his last 4 games and Brown has averaged 17.6 ppg in his last 8 games since taking over for the injured Grant Hill.

The shorthanded T-Wolves will need solid games from Kevin Love and Michael Beasley, who scored 20 points in the Hornets’ loss after missing a few games due to an injury. Nikola Pekovic (13.4 ppg) also has to step up and these 3 guys are key, as the other 2 players averaging in double figures are out.

Marcin Gortat leads the Suns in scoring and rebounding and he will be counted on to keep Love from having a HUGE game on the boards.

In some betting trends for this Western Conference match up the Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record, and they have an Under record of 4-1 in their last 5 games.

The T-Wolves are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games overall, and they have an Under record of 5-2 in their last 7 games.

Jason’s Pick: This one is an easy call, as the Suns are rolling and the T-Wolves are reeling. Take the Suns to cover in this game even though they are on the road and giving 2.5 points.
