Kings vs. Timberwolves prediction and odds for Monday, January 30 (Wolves elite as home dogs)

The Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves face off for the second time in as many games on Monday night in Minnesota.

The Timberwolves won Saturday’s matchup by seven points, their third straight win and seventh in their last 10 games. Minnesota is now the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference, which is extremely impressive given how much time Karl-Anthony Towns has missed this season.

The Kings, who have also won seven of their last 10 games, are the No. 3 seed in the West, two games ahead of Minnesota.

This should be an uptempo game, as both teams rank in the top seven in the NBA in pace, but these teams did combine for just 227 points in their meeting on Saturday.

Does Minnesota sweep this two-game stretch at home? Or can the Kings improve on their 11-10 road record?

Let’s dive into the odds and a pick for this game:

Kings vs. Timberwolves odds, spread and total

Kings vs. Timberwolves prediction and pick

The Timberwolves are really playing terrific basketball as of late, and they’ve been one of the best teams in the NBA as home underdogs this season, going 9-3 against the spread.

Now, I don’t want to discount the Kings record as road favorites (5-2 ATS), but they came up short in this spot on Saturday.

The Kings have the best net rating in the NBA over their last 10 games, but they’ve started to come back to earth, losing badly at home to the Toronto Raptors before dropping Saturday’s game to Minnesota.

The other impressive part about Minnesota’s record as home dogs is the fact that the team has won all nine games that it has covered.

So, if you want to sprinkle on the moneyline, I don’t mind it. I’ll gladly take the points with the Wolves at home.
