Monday, February 26 finds Western Conference foes facing off at the Golden 1 Center. Both Minnesota and Sacramento are coming into this one struggling to find wins as they’ve gone 5-5 and 3-7 respectively in their last 10 games. Minnesota is 1-0 post-Butler after they took out Chicago 122-104. Meanwhile, Sacramento is just looking to snap their three-game skid.
Minnesota and Sacramento squared off on Minnesota’s home-court earlier this month where Timberwolves snuck by with a 111-106 victory.
We saw Minnesota open up as 5.5 point favorites while the line has remained pretty stagnant currently sitting at 6. About 55% of the public is backing Minnesota.
Losing Jimmy Butler to a knee injury is demoralizing, especially for a young team like Minnesota, but it is encouraging to see them pick up a victory albeit a weak Chicago team.
The road has been a kind place for Minnesota’s offense as they rank 6th in PPG, 3rd in FG%, and 2nd in FT%.
Defense has been a different story on the road as they rank 23rd in PPG, 28th in FG%, and 22nd in 3PT%. Rough numbers, but if there is one thing they do right then it’s their rebounding ability as they rank 6th overall in RPG.
This will be a tricky part of Minnesota’s schedule where they’ll be playing their third game in four days. Two games ago they were on the road, then had to come back home, now they must start a three-game road trip. They are 0-4 in their last four games on the road.
Sacramento has just been rummaging around trying to pick up a win here and there, and you’d think that they’d find some sort of comfort at home but that is not the case as they’ve gone 1-5 in their last six. They’ll be without Iman Shumpert who is out indefinitely with plantar fasciitis.
They struggle to to score points at home ranking 28th overall, but they have done a decent job shooting the ball ranking 15th in FG% and 2nd in 3PT%. Speaking of three-pointers, Sacramento has scored 57 threes in their last five matchups.
Defense has been lacking as they rank 24th in PPG, 27th in FG%, and 28th in 3PT%. This isn’t surprising, why play defense when it’s not worth it.
They’re leading scorer is 36 year old Zach Randolph, which is not a knock on him, but at some point one of these young players are going to have to begin to take a leadership role.
NBA Betting Trends:
- SAC are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games.
- Over is 9-3-1 in SAC last 13 home games.

- Over is 29-14 in MIN last 43 Mon. games.
Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction: Minnesota gets gritty victory post-Butler
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Sacramento +6
It is hard to tell how things will play out for Minnesota. Losing a key player can make a team vulnerable or it can strengthen them. They just played an emotional game against Chicago and must now hit the road, which could put them in a bad spot against a Sacramento team that has gone 5-2 ATS in their last seven. Minnesota may squeak out another hard-fought victory, but their road defense should keep Sacramento in the game.
