It is tough for bad teams to shake the reputation of being bad, even when they are playing well, such as Oklahoma City and in this case, Minnesota. Even bad teams have stretches of a long season where they play over their heads and Minnesota is in the midst of one now. They endured a 13-game losing streak that left them at 4-22 on the season. They have now won more games in their last six games with five wins than they did in their first 26, covering eight of their last 10. The Suns have been winning, but that isn't what is important. What is important is how over-valued they have been. They are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games. That mark includes 1-5 ATS at home against teams with a losing record. This isn't just a team with a losing record, it is a hot team with a losing record and I'll back the Timberwolves here.
