Basketball betting odds on Wednesday have the Philadelphia 76ers favored at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 76ers may be the NBA betting favorite in this matchup but the trends actually support Minnesota. Let’s take a look at this basketball matchup for Wednesday.
Basketball scheduling information shows that the Timberwolves are playing the 2nd game of a three-game road trip tonight. Minnesota has won 6 of the last 10 games versus Philadelphia and they are 6-4 against the basketball odds in those games. At Philadelphia, the 76ers have won three of the last five games straight up but they are 1-4 against the basketball odds.
The teams met early this season in Minnesota and the Timberwolves came away with a 102-96 victory as basketball results indicate.
Minnesota has been a team this season that loses money for NBA betting gamblers on a regular basis at home but they make money for them on the road. The Timberwolves are almost always getting big points on the road and they have been successful covering the NBA betting pointspread. The Timberwolves are very young and can struggle but on the road they have been able to sneak under the basketball odds quite a few times.
Philadelphia is right in the playoff mix in the Eastern Conference and they have actually been better against the basketball betting number without Elton Brand who was injured earlier this season. Andre Iguodala has picked up his play and is leading the team in scoring as basketball betting stats show. Philadelphia is winning with defense as they rank just outside the Top 10 in the league as basketball numbers indicate.
The basketball betting total has been very streaky in this series. The last four games between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting number while the previous four had all gone under. Philadelphia has been a solid under team this season at home in terms of the NBA betting total.
