76ers vs. Timberwolves Betting Trends

  • Philadelphia is 2-4 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games.
  • The total has hit the over in seven of Philadelphia's last 10 games in March.

  • The total has hit the under in five of Minnesota's last six games.

76ers vs. Timberwolves Prediction & Pick

The 76ers come to town on fire as their offense has scored a total of 280 points over the last two games. Scoring on the road has been something Philadelphia has done all season long, too. It is averaging 115.0 points per game (No. 7 in NBA) on a shooting percentage of 49.3% (No. 4 in NBA).

That does not bode well for Minnesota as it is allowing 115.0 points per home game (No. 22 in NBA). Keep in mind Joel Embiid torched Rudy Gobert in the first matchup between these teams as he went off for 32 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Expect more of the same from the MVP candidate tonight.

Philadelphia has won nine of its last 11 games against Minnesota, so back the 76ers on the road.

Final Score Prediction: 76ers: 118 | Timberwolves: 112

76ers. Timberwolves Best Bet

It's worth pointing out how one-sided this series as been. Not only are the 76ers 9-2 straight up in their last 11 games against the Timberwolves, but they are also 9-2 against the spread (ATS) during that span. Philly is 7-1 ATS in its last eight games against Minnesota inside the Target Center as well.

Minnesota is 2-8 ATS in its last 10 games against an Eastern Conference opponent and has lost six of its last eight games against an Atlantic Division foe outright. Watch out for any injury concerns on the second night of a back-to-back for Philly, but the 76ers should keep this one close no matter what.

Bet: Philadelphia 76ers +2 (-108)
