Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
It has been a rough two-game stretch since Andrew Wiggins rejoined the Timberwolves’ starting lineup. Saturday’s 100-98 loss to the Phoenix Suns showed that there’s still a lot of things the Wolves need to improve on in order for them to be a legitimate playoff contender. Karl-Anthony Towns chalked up 31 points and 17 boards, Andrew Wiggins scored 21, and Keita Bates-Diop set a career-high 22 points in the close loss.
Players to Watch: Karl-Anthony Towns (26.4 PPG and 12.4 RPG), Andrew Wiggins (25.2 PPG and 5.2 RPG), and Jeff Teague (13.2 PPG and 7.2 APG).
Atlanta Hawks Betting
Trae Young has been inconsistent over the last few games and that has affected the Atlanta Hawks’ performance during this three-week stretch. The second-year point guard did tally a triple-double with 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a 116-119 loss to the Toronto Raptors, but again he will need more help from others players in order for the Hawks to start winning.
Players to Watch: Trae Young (25.9 PPG, 4.4 RPG, and 8.7 APG), DeAndre Bembry (7.9 PPG and 4.2 RPG), DeAndre Hunter (12.9 PPG and 4.1 RPG)

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks
The Timberwolves should be a good NBA Moneyline pick to win despite the myriad of injuries they are dealing with. Online Bookmakers would have adjusted the NBA spread a lot wider had not the Hawks pushed the Raptors to their limit in their last game.
Moneyline: Bad news for the Hawks, the Wolves are actually better on the road at 5-2 than at home 3-6.
ATS: The Wolves lost to the Hawks in their last two games, but this Minnesota team is a lot different now with Towns and Wiggins breaking out from their shells. I expect the road team to give the Hawks a double-digit beatdown to cover the spread.
TOTALs: The total for this game opened at 236 points. UNDER sounds like a wise pick since it is uncertain if Young can come up with another big game. The possible return of Robert Covington should make life a lot tougher for the young guard. If the Wolves limit Young under 30 points, then there’s a good chance the Hawks will just score in the low 100s.
Score Prediction: 116-103 Timberwolves
