Timberwolves vs. Raptors 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 window.

The Wolves have played excellent since mid-December though, considering Minnesota enters Wednesday riding a sturdy 32-18 SU and 30-18-2 ATS run – while tallying 119.3 OPPG and surrendering 116 DPPG during that timeframe.

On the other hand, Toronto jumped out to a surprisingly solid start to the season, as the Raptors kicked things off with a modest 23-23 SU and 25-21 ATS stretch – despite getting tagged as underdogs in 26 of those contests.

However, Toronto has played solid basketball since the closing days of January, considering the Raptors boast records of 20-9 SU and 18-11 ATS across their last 29 games – while generating 112.3 OPPG and allowing just 108.9 DPPG during that timeframe.

I’ll back Minnesota here, as the Raptors are 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games, while tallying 114.4 OPPG and surrendering 106.4 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for a fast-paced back-and-forth battle against a Wolves’ squad that’s averaging 124.7 OPPG across their latest 11-4 SU, ATS run.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Analysis

  • SU: 43-33
  • ATS: 41-33-2
  • O/U: 45-31

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 Timberwolves 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 in December though, highlighted by the Wolves boasting records of 32-18 SU and 30-18-2 ATS stretch – despite getting tagged as underdogs in 21 of those matchups.

Toronto Raptors Betting Analysis

  • SU: 43-32
  • ATS: 43-32
  • O/U: 38-37

After finishing 12th in the East with a record of 27-45 SU last year, Toronto bounced back with a surprisingly decent start to this season, as the Raptors opened with a modest 23-23 SU and 25-21 ATS stretch – despite getting tagged as underdogs in 26 of those contests.

However, the Raptors emerged as legitimate playoff contenders in the waning days of January, considering Toronto enters Wednesday riding a sturdy 20-9 SU and 18-11 ATS stretch – with over half of those SU victories coming away from Scotiabank Arena (12).

Timberwolves vs. Raptors Head-to-Head

The Raptors and Timberwolves split a two-game regular-season set last year, with the first matchup resulting in a relatively high-scoring win for Minnesota (116-112, O 227), while the second resulted in a low-scoring victory for Toronto (86-81, U 226). However, the most recent matchup between these teams took place last month, which resulted in another low-scoring victory for the Raptors (103-91, U 228).

Key Players to Watch

  • MIN: Karl-Anthony Towns - C (24.6 PPG, 9.8 REB, 3.7 AST)
  • MIN: Anthony Edwards - SG (21 PPG, 4.7 REB, 3.7 AST)
  • TOR: Scottie Barnes - PF (15.3 PPG, 7.6 REB, 3.5 AST)
  • TOR: Pascal Siakam - PF (22.5 PPG, 8.3 REB, 5.1 AST)

Timberwolves vs. Raptors Betting Conclusion

After extending their win streak to three games with an overtime victory over Boston on Monday night (W, 115-112 OT), the Raptors enter Wednesday’s contest as short home favorites over the Timberwolves at Scotiabank Arena – marking the third time Minnesota has been an underdog across their last five games.

I’ll back Minnesota here, as the Wolves are 11-4 SU and ATS in their last 15 games, while generating 124.7 OPPG and surrendering 112.6 DPPG during that timeframe – setting the stage for a competitive high-scoring battle against a Raptors squad that’s averaging 114.2 OPPG across their latest 9-2 SU run.
