Phoenix Suns vs Minnesota Timberwolves Game 2: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

The Suns have had an extra day of rest in between games 1 and 2, that’ll do them good following a tough 25 point loss in the series opener. Kevin Durant stood out with 31 points in Saturday’s game, but even he ended the game with a -20 which just shows how poorly the Suns played as a team. Frank Vogel will have to make the necessary adjustments for Tuesday’s game, the number one priority is to get Devin Booker going. He had just 18 points on a mediocre 5-for-16 from the field, far below what the expectations were from him. Grayson Allen’s injury is also a concern, he attempted just 3 three-pointers in Game 1 before leaving the game with a sprained ankle. We are yet to see a road team win a game in these Playoffs, will the Suns become the first?

A lot of that depends on the approach of the Timberwolves here. Anthony Edwards had his moment in Game 1 where he exploded for 33 points and 9 rebounds, going at Kevin Durant possession after possession. Whether or not that is sustainable in the long run remains to be seen, but Edwards appears to be destined for stardom. As a team Minnesota shot 50% in that win on Saturday, apart from Mike Conley who went just 2-for-12 from the field, pretty much everyone contributed. It was their 5th win in 6 home games, expectations are high for Tuesday’s game as well. They’re 3.5 point favorites to win, which is almost identical to Saturday’s game when the spread was 2.5 points. However, they will have to be on high alert here as the Suns have already won once at Target Center this season.

Phoenix Suns Point Spread Prediction

Suns +3.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Prior to the start of this series I expected it to go the distance and I still feel that way. These two teams are evenly matched across the roster, I don’t expect either one of them to win back-to-back games in this series. Go with Phoenix to even things out on Tuesday.

Phoenix Suns vs Minnesota Timberwolves Game 2 Total Points: Over 212.5

Over 212.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

After that dismal performance on Saturday, I am expecting a lot more from the Suns than the 95 points they scored in that game. The trio of Devin Booker, Grayson Allen and Eric Gordon combined to shoot just 5-for-24 from the field, it’ll be up to Bradley Beal to make sure those guys get going. It’s hard to imagine the NBA’s most accurate three-point shooter to go without a field goal made in consecutive games, even if he is slightly bothered by his ankle injury. The Suns have cashed on the over in 4 of 5 road games and in 5 straight visits to Target Center if we include the regular season. Minnesota’s defense set the tone in Game 1, allowing just 95 points, but even with that we still saw the over cash. There’s just too much scoring talent on both rosters here, the 10 most recent meetings have averaged 229 points per game. The projected total is just too low for me, I’ll take the points here.
