This line is really the TWolves -5? If so, then i dont even need to take a second look.  The Wolves are in no way a better team on any court, especially when the rockets are rolling and the wolves are struggling with injuries. Betting the house on this if the Rockets are really going to open as a 5 point dog.

Minnesota was never -5 and Houston was never 5 dog. I guess you overlooked the sign in front of the 5. Minnesota is +5.

I read that Kevin Love is playing tonight versus Houston. Will a nice matchup: Love vs Howard!


I go with Houston -5

And by the way Pekovic and Martin are still out for Minnesota.
I expect a one-man performance from Kevin Love; Houston should be able to contain him here therefore I go with Houston here.

Houston has a problem with their inconsistency & a crappy 6-7 ATS record this year as road faves.  Minny 0-2 ATS as home dogs & have 2 starters out & Love hurting.  Pass...

I never like teams on a 5 in 7.  All signs point to HOU in a comfortable win here.  Every now & then the line is set to make us overthink it.  I believe that is the case here with HOU well rested and Asik back in.  Gimmie Hou all day in this spot.  BOLTA

Kevin Love is dealing with neck, back, and leg issues right now. This wolves team cannot wait for ASW. I cannot expect an injured kevin love to single handily beat a rockets team who has won 5 in a row. Wolves do not cover the 3 point line, and the rockets are one of the best shooting teams in the league.  Play of the night, Rockets -4.5
