Why Minnesota Timberwolves are a good bet +6?
Early in the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves were one of the worst teams in the NBA. The T’Wolves could get nothing positive going. Lately, though, they’ve turned it around.
Minnesota beat Orlando 120-103. They took down the L.A. Lakers 108-86. Then, in their most impressive win in their last 5 games, they beat Oklahoma City on the road 119-117. Even a loss to Dallas at home couldn’t stop the Timberwolves from taking down New Orleans 110-106. Minnesota’s hot. It will show on January 15.</p.

Timberwolves vs 76ers Final NBA Betting Analysis
The 76ers have gotten the press, but they’re not playing as well as Minnesota has in the last few games. The T’Wolves have really turned it on while the 76ers struggled to get past a seriously inferior team in New York in their last.
Philadelphia’s giving up way too many points in this matchup. For some reason, the 76ers can’t cover against anybody right now. The T’Wolves are the inferior team. But, the 76ers will play like the inferior squad on Jan. 15.
