Los Angeles Clippers vs Minnesota Timberwolves 4/12/2022 Betting Odds
Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Los Angeles Clippers were not expected to go far after having Paul George and Kawhi Leonard missing the season. Luckily, George is back and has been playing great for the Clippers. This is going to be a tough task for the team and they will need George to channel his outstanding playoff performance from last year. Reggie Jackson has been the team’s anchor and he should stabilize the team giving George the looks he needs inside the basketball court. Nicolas Batum and Marcus Morris Jr. to be smart on the court showing their veteran experience over the younger Timberwolves.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Minnesota Timberwolves are now getting to work as they now have the healthy roster that they need. Karl-Anthony Towns is going to be a very integral factor on how the Timberwolves can go far in this playoffs and he will need to dominate Ivica Zubac. Anthony Edwards will also be tested on how he will perform in the playoffs but he will get the necessary push from Patrick Beverly who is also out to beat his former team. Malik Beasley will be an x-factor for this team as he will give the team’s necessary boost from the bench while D’Angelo Russell is still not 100% from his injury.
