The Suns are not a team I normally like to go against. But I’m going to try it here with much of my handicap based on trusting the Timberwolves.

Minnesota is one of the more improved teams in the league with Anthony Edwards emerging as a star. That gives the Timberwolves two elite players with Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns. At 24-24, the Timberwolves already have exceeded their win total of last season.

Phoenix has won eight in a row. The Suns are coming off an away/home sweep of the Jazz. Those are satisfying victories for Phoenix. So there could be a letdown factor for Phoenix, which is 2-6 ATS the last eight times as a home favorite.

The Timberwolves came up short against the Warriors, 124-115, at Golden State last night. Just too much Stephen Curry. Now the Timberwolves get tested right away again against the best of the west. They have the talent and motivation to keep this one close. Minnesota is 7-1-1 ATS following a loss.

The first meeting between these two teams was close with the Suns holding on for a 99-96 road win on Nov. 15.

(Editor’s note: I have won 12 of my last 16 NBA plays and have my NBA Game of the Year going today. I also am 20-10 on my last 30 premium/free college basketball plays. If you are interested in my sports service please email me at, or message me via Twitter. Thanks and best of luck!)
