Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks become one of the most electrifying ball clubs this season with second-year guard Trae Young leading the charge. Unfortunately, Atlanta still has a long way to go before they become a playoff contender. Their latest loss against the Boston Celtics, 123-115, proved that this team needs a piece or two to go toe-to-toe with the NBA’s elites.

Players to Watch: Trae Young (29.2 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 9.0 APG)

John Collins (19.4 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 1.2 APG)

DeAndre Hunter (12.3 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 1.8 APG)

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves started the 2019/20 NBA season with a lofty expectation of making it into the playoffs. Initially, the terrific plays of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins have produced a bunch of victories. But bad things started to unfold in the coming weeks with the two young stars struggling to stay healthy. Monday’s 113-109 loss to the Sacramento Kings dealt the Wolves’ their 12th consecutive loss and a reminder that perhaps it’s time to blow up the core.

Players to Watch: Karl-Anthony Towns (26.9 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 4.2 APG)

Andrew Wiggins (22.4 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 3.7 APG)

Robert Covington (12.8 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 1.2 APG)

Atlanta Hawks vs Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Picks

A big trade centered on big man Clint Capela happened late Tuesday night, and these two teams were involved in the transaction. The Hawks getting Capela is a maneuver for the future that would make this up-and-coming team one of NBA future betting darlings for many years.

Moneyline: Bet on the Hawks at +202. Young is listed probable for this game, but I am sensing he’s going to play and drop a huge stats line vs. the Wolves.

ATS: Bet the Hawks to cover the spread. Atlanta is a solid 9-10 ATS against Western Conference teams.

TOTALs: Back the OVER at 235.5 points. The Wolves and Hawks combined for 238 points in their last game. The lack of abled bodies due to the trade and defense will help these teams surpass the totals set for this game.

Score Prediction: 121 – 117 Hawks
