Despite being on a great run of late, Minnesota could be a little out of their league in this one. The Timberwolves are 6-4 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games but the Spurs are rolling and a win for Gregg Popovich tonight would make it 10 in a row against the T-Wolves and it would further extend his all-time record for W’s as an HC.

- The Timberwolves are 0-9 SU and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games against the Spurs.
- The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Timberwolves’ last 9 games against the Spurs.
- The total has gone OVER in 11 of the Timberwolves’ last 15 games.
With six straight wins, San Antonio is on its second-longest winning streak of the 2016-17 campaign but they’ve gone just 3-3 ATS in that same time-frame. The Wolves have been a streaky spread betting team all year and with five straight cashes against the spread, their opening cushion of +8 may be enough for bettors to hang their hats on.
That said, the Spurs average margin of victory in their last 10 meetings with the T-Wolves is over 15 points and Minny hasn’t come within five points of San Antonio in a game since a 101-96 loss back in December of 2015.
