Minnesota Timberwolves vs Philadelphia 76ers betting tips and predictions for Tuesday’s NBA game on TNT. The 76ers will try to follow up last night’s big win in Indiana with another one as they head to Minneapolis to face the Timberwolves. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Minnesota TimberwolvesWith 3 wins in a row the Timberwolves have silenced their critics for the time being, remaining in 6th place in the West standings. With teams like the Mavericks, Clippers, Blazers and Lakers all lurking behind them, this is one of the most highly contested seasons we can remember as far as playoff seeding goes. They enter tonight’s game vs Philly as 1.5 point underdogs, despite winning the first meeting of the season back in late November 112-109 on their home floor.

That was only their 2nd win in the last 11 meetings between the two teams, while in games played at Target Center they’re only 1-7 ATS in the last 8 head-to-head. A lot is expected from Anthony Edwards here, he matches up with James Harden who played over 40 minutes last night which could give him the edge.

Philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia 76ers 1Playing on 2nd nights of a back-to-back hasn’t been a bad thing at all for Philadelphia this season. In 9 such games they’re 6-3 SU, which is very encouraging after last night’s 147-143 win in Indiana. Joel Embiid had a big game with 42 points on just 15 shots from the field, while James Harden carried the playmaking with 20 assists and 14 points scored.

There are no indications that head coach Doc Rivers will rest any of his starters here, there are only 2 players on the injury report in P.J. Tucker and Tobias Harris both being questionable. Philadelphia has owned the head-to-head match-up with a 9-2 SU/ATS record over the last 11 games played. They’re also 9-1 SU in their last 10 games vs Western Conference opponents and on the road they’ve won 12 of 15 games.

On paper the Sixers are a much better team, but having played last night won’t do them any favors here. Minnesota is in a good groove having beaten the two LA teams and Sacramento on the road in their last 3, so let’s back them as home underdogs here.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Philadelphia 76ers Predictions & Odds

The last 3 games played by Philadelphia have seen 259, 263 and 290 points. Defense hasn’t been near the top of their priority list in those 3 games, but luckily for them with players like Embiid and Harden they can match almost any team in the NBA scoring wise. That might be needed once again tonight as they take on Minnesota, as the last Timberwolves games also saw 272 points scored.

In games played against each other, these two teams are 7-3 on the O/U in the last 10 meetings with an average of 229.7 points per game. On the road the Sixers are 18-12 on the O/U this year, that bet has also landed in 7 of their last 10 played in March. Having seen the last 4 of 5 meetings go over the total, I think it would be wise to back the points once again here so let’s go with the over.
