Minnesota Timberwolves at Milwaukee Bucks Preview & Picks

Minnesota are backed to bounce back from the defeat in Chicago.

The Timberwolves are in decent form on the road despite blowing a big lead against the Bulls, and they are the healthier team.

  • Minnesota Timberwolves are 4-2 in their last 6 road games
  • Minnesota Timberwolves are 3-1-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a betting underdog
  • Milwaukee Bucks are 4-15-0 ATS in their last 19 games
  • The Under has cashed in each of Milwaukee's last 5 games

Head To Head

  • The all-time series is tied 33-33
  • Milwaukee Bucks won 123-114 when the two teams last met in December 2022

Minnesota Timberwolves Form

Minnesota head to Milwaukee on the back of a loss and in mixed form having gone 5-5 in their last 10 games.

The Timberwolves began this sequence with back-to-back defeats at home, losing 102-97 to Oklahoma City and 128-125 to Charlotte.

They bounced back on the road with a 118-107 win in Washington and a 96-94 victory in Brooklyn, and they then rebounded from a 113-112 defeat in San Antonio by beating Oklahoma City 107-101.

Minnesota backed that up at home with a 121-87 blowout of Dallas, only to then lose 108-106 to Orlando.

The Timberwolves again responded quickly to a loss, beating Houston 111-90, only to blow a big lead as they lost 129-123 in overtime in Chicago on Tuesday night.

Milwaukee Bucks Form

Milwaukee return home in bad form, having lost four of their five games during their latest road trip.

The Bucks went out on the road in decent form, having won four of their previous five games.

They had won 141-135 and 122-113 in Detroit, before sandwiching a 112-100 home loss to Cleveland with a 126-111 win over the Cavaliers and a 141-117 blowout of New Orleans.

Milwaukee failed to back that up as they started this trip with a 113-107 loss in Denver, followed by a 119-116 defeat to Portland.

The Bucks avoided a third consecutive defeat by winning 129-117 in Dallas, but their joy was short-lived as they then lost 123-108 in Utah and 114-106 at Phoenix.

Verdict

Minnesota have been a solid pick on the road and as an underdog recently, so we like the Timberwolves against a Bucks team who could be without Middleton and Lillard.
