NBA Betting Preview: Spurs at Timberwolves

The San Antonio Spurs look to make it 16 straight wins against the Minnesota Timberwolves when the two teams meet on Tuesday in the second half of a home and home (5:05 p.m. ET).

San Antonio (31-6 SU, 21-15-1 ATS) barely slipped past a pesky Minnesota squad 94-91 on Sunday failing to cover the number as 11-point home favorites.

Regardless, the Spurs are listed as solid 6.5-point road favorites at SBGGlobal.com and the total is set at 206. On the moneyline, San Antonio is -270 and Minnesota is +230.

Although Minnesota (9-29 SU, 19-19 ATS) has lost to San Antonio three times this season, they have lost by just 11 points combined. The Timberwolves have one of the worst records in the league but they continue to play hard and are getting close to ending their losing streak against the Spurs.

In November, the Timberwolves led by 21 points but blew the lead and 113-109 as 7.5-point home dogs. In early December, they led by 15 in the fourth quarter and again blew the lead to lose 107-101 as 12-point road dogs.

On Sunday, the T-Wolves led by nine early in the game but trailed by eight late before rallying to lose by just three on the road.

On Tuesday, Minnesota gets one final chance this season to break the goose egg against the visiting Spurs. The Spurs are 9-5-1 ATS on the road this season while Minnesota is 8-9 ATS at home.

Minnesota’s leading scorer, Michael Beasley, injured his ankle in Sunday’s game and he is listed as questionable for this game.
