The Wolves (41-30-1) ATS are on a four-game winning streak and are 9-1 in their last 10 games, including a 138-119 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday. Minnesota, which is 10-1 ATS in its last 11 matches and 10-1 SU, is looking to have All Star center Karl Anthony Towns (24.9 ppg, 9.9 rpg) as he was listed as questionable due to a sore forearm.
