Minnesota Vs Houston NBA Betting Pick, Prediction & TV Info
When: Saturday, February 25 at 9:00 PM ET Where: Toyota Center, Houston, TX TV: FSN, RTSW
Why Bet The Minnesota TimberwolvesMinnesota (22-35 SU, 25-32 ATS) comes into this contest off an impressive 112-99 win over Denver on Feb. 15 just before the all-star break as Andrew Wiggins scored a game-high 40 points and Karl Anthony-Towns added 24 points and a season-high 19 rebounds. Wiggins is the first player in franchise history to have at least four 40-piint games in a season and just the second to do it in consecutive games.
“Good company,” he said. “I’m just playing my game. I’m confident, my shot’s falling, I feel like I’m in a good rhythm.”
The bad news is that the T-Wolves have been maddeningly inconsistent in alternating wins and losses over their last six games. Minnesota is just 14-18 on the road this season and has given up a whopping 115 points or more in five of their last six losses.
Why Bet The Houston RocketsThe Rockets (41-18 SU, 34-25 ATS) rolled all over the ‘new-look’ New Orleans Pelicans in their emphatic 129-99 win on Thursday night as the newly acquired Lou Williams scored a team-high 27 points in his first game with the team. A 12-year veteran, Williams made 7 of 11 from beyond the arc while playing just 25 minutes. Prior to tip-off, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said he expected Williams to “get his feet wet” in his first game with new teammates.
“Yeah, I think so,” D’Antoni said, smiling when asked about Williams’ debut. “We haven’t started coaching him yet. Wait till we start coaching him down. He’s a ball player, so I knew that he’d be OK. I didn’t obviously know he was going to get 27. He just scores very easily. He’ll have a lot of room to operate.”
Houston has won five of its last six games and is 21-7 at home this season.
Expert Pick & Final Score PredictionDon’t go over-thinking the outcome of this contest people. The Houston Rockets are far too explosive offensively for the Timberwolves to keep up with – or stop Harden and the Rockets.
Minnesota is just 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against their Western Conference counterparts while Houston has gone 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing straight up record, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and consistent 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games against their Western Conference rivals.
While the Timberwolves are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 road games against Houston, I’m going to say the Rockets win by double digits to cover the spread.
