Sans needs to stay in the top six
Phoenix is ranked fourth in the West, but they don’t have the privilege of being out of contention as a playoff spot is far from guaranteed. In their most recent game, the Suns defeated Utah 117-103 on the road, their second win in a row. Directly in the play-offs, the team will be very dangerous and will even succeed in the final championship. With an injury, Kevin Durant risks missing the upcoming fixture, no other losses.
Minnesota is on the move
Timberwolves look interesting this season, would like to see such a team in the playoffs. Minnesota has a youthful fuse and is also not afraid of power. The club is seventh in the conference with only one win in six while the game is in the deal. In the last meeting, the Timberwolves defeated Sacramento with a score of 119:115, the victory was the fourth in a row. Three players could have missed this game due to injury, the most significant loss would be Townes.
We expect an exciting confrontation between the direct competitors of our arena factor, as well as more experienced players, which makes Phoenix a slight favorite for the meeting. Bookmakers also stick to this stance, although Minnesota has already proven that it is not afraid of powerful rivals. Let’s risk betting on the win of the hosts with a handicap of -4.5 points.
