The Miami Heat will try to find some consistency tonight in Minnesota when they take on a young Timberwolves team that’s coming off their first loss of the season. Miami has rotated wins and losses in their four games this season, but they’ve been efficient on the offensive end so far, being in the top eight in both field goal and three-point shooting percentage.
- The Heat are 10-2 SU and ATS in their last 12 games on the road in November.
- The Timberwolves are 2-10 SU and 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 games in November.
- Dwyane Wade is averaging 26.9 pts in 17 career games vs MIN.
Inconceivably, the Heat are just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games when playing on one day’s rest, but they have a recent history of dominating in Minnesota as they’ve gone 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as road favorites vs the Timberwolves.
Minnesota has responded well to being underdogs going back to last season, as they’re 4-1 ATS in their last five games as underdogs. The Heat likely represent a more significant challenge than the competition they’ve seen so far this season (Lakers, Nuggets, Trail Blazers) and Andrew Wiggins struggled in two games vs the Heat last season, averaging just eight points.
The teams split their two games last season.
