Suns vs. Timberwolves Predictions

After finishing 13th in the West with a record of 23-49 SU last year, Minnesota briefly sustained that same lethargic pace with another lackluster start to this season, as the Timberwolves opened with a disappointing 11-15 SU skid – while scoring just 107.7 OPPG across that span.

The Wolves have played excellent since mid-December though, considering Minnesota enters Wednesday riding a sturdy 31-16 SU and 29-16-2 ATS run – while tallying 119.6 OPPG and allowing 115.9 DPPG during that timeframe.

On the other hand, Phoenix absolutely dominated to open the season, as the Suns kicked things off with an impressive 27-8 SU and 18-17 ATS run – with 18 of those victories coming by 10+ PTS.

Despite the absence of Chris Paul, Phoenix has carried that same momentum all the way through March, considering the Suns boast impressive records of 31-6 SU and 21-16 ATS across their last 37 games – while generating 117.8 OPPG and allowing just 107.9 DPPG during that timeframe.

I’ll take the over here, as the Suns are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games, while tallying 125.6 OPPG and allowing just 110.1 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for a fast-paced back-and-forth battle against a Wolves’ squad that’s averaging 127.3 OPPG across their latest 10-2 SU run.

Phoenix Suns Betting Analysis

  • SU: 58-14
  • ATS: 39-33
  • O/U: 37-34-1

After battling Utah for the top spot in the conference all the way through the final day of last year’s regular season (51-21 SU), Phoenix was surprisingly rusty to start the year, as the Suns dropped three-of-four games out of the gate – while tallying just 106.3 OPPG across that window.

Devin Booker and company clearly just needed a few weeks to settle into a rhythm though, considering the Suns boast records of 57-11 SU and 38-30 ATS since their four-game opening skid, while ranking fourth in the league in scoring and third in offensive efficiency (114.9 OPPG, 1.117 OE) – and on the flipside, ranking sixth in points allowed and third in defensive efficiency (106.5 DPPG, 1.036 DE).

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Analysis

  • SU: 42-31
  • ATS: 40-31-2
  • O/U: 43-30

After last year’s lackluster 23-49 SU showing, Minnesota briefly kept that same ball rolling with another slow start to this season, as the Wolves opened with a frustrating 11-15 SU and ATS skid – with nine of those SU losses coming by 10+ PTS.

Minnesota quickly turned things around back in December though, highlighted by the Wolves boasting records of 29-15 SU and 27-15-2 ATS stretch – despite getting tagged as underdogs in 19 of those matchups.

Phoenix won two-of-three regular-season matchups against Minnesota last year, with both Suns’ victories staying under the total at an average of 215.5 PPG, while the Wolves’ lone win soared over with a score of 123-119 (O 232). However, Phoenix is 2-0 SU against Minnesota this season, with the first matchup staying well under the number at a score of 99-96 (U 222) – while the second went way over with a score of 134-124 (O 228).

Suns vs. Timberwolves Betting Conclusion

After having a four-game win streak snapped in heartbreaking fashion in Dallas on Monday (L, 110-108), the Timberwolves return home for Wednesday’s contest as short underdogs against the Suns at Target Center – marking the third time Minnesota has been an underdog across their last six games.

I’ll take the over here, as the Wolves are 10-2 SU and ATS in their last 12 games, while tallying 127.3 OPPG and allowing just 111.3 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for a fast-paced back-and-forth battle against a Suns squad that’s averaging 125.6 OPPG across their latest 5-2 ATS stretch.
