Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Nets struggling late this month is real. They have lost three of their last three games and Kyrie Irving returning to the team is extended for a few more weeks. They lost to the Rockets recently and they have a huge hole at the point guard position. Garrett Temple is placed to the starting lineup and he just did 1-for-9 from the field. Spencer Dinwiddie has been converted to a point guard and he dished out 11 assists. Despite doing 17 points, he had to shoot 20 times to achieve that number. With All-Star numbers, Dinwiddie is trying to keep the boat afloat but this team is really designed for Kyrie Irving this year.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves snapped their 13-game losing streak but they lost once again to the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers. In an NBA world that home-court advantage is supposed to be an โ€œadvantageโ€, the T-Wolves got the bulk of their wins from the road. Currently, this team has been 3-and-11 at home while 8-and-9 from the road. In their game against Cleveland, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins did not play. Jeff Teague was the teamโ€™s top scorer at 18 points while Kelan Martin had 17 points. This team needs help from their depth but no one has been stepping up.

Players to Watch: A. Wiggins SF 26 GP 26 GS 35.8 MIN 24.8 PTS 1.2 OR 4.2 DR 5.4 REB 3.3 AST 0.7 STL 1.1 BLK 2.5 TO 2.5 PF 1.3 AST/TO 18.12 PER
