Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
After dominating the Washington Wizards 131-109 on Saturday, the Timberwolves sorely missed the two-way presence of Karl-Anthony Towns in a 134-106 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday. Fortunately for Minnesota, Towns is set to return from the two-game suspension given to him by the NBA for his on-court fight with Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid.
Players to Watch: Karl-Anthony Towns (27.2 PPG, 11.5 RPG, 4.0 APG), Andrew Wiggins (21.2 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 1.7 APG), Jeff Teague (13.2 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 6.3 APG)
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Grizzlies dropped their third straight game at the hands of the Houston Rockets 107-100. Ja Morant has kept on piling up good numbers in his rookie campaign, finishing with 23 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds. Dillon Brooks racked up 17 points and 9 boards for Memphis, who just converted three of their 25 attempts from three-point range.
Players to Watch: Ja Morant (19.5 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 5.5 APG), Jaren Jackson, Jr. (13.2 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 0.8 APG), Dillon Brooks (12.5 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 1.7 APG)

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Picks
Getting Karl-Anthony Towns back is huge for the Timberwolves, who look to keep collecting wins and stay in pace with other elite teams in the Western Conference standings. As for Memphis, Jaren Jackson Jr. is listed questionable, though it’s unlikely he’ll play without a clean bill of health from team physician. Having the former lottery pick next to Morant would have given the Grizzlies some chance and perhaps drama in NBA Moneyline betting, but Memphis just want to prioritize their players’ overall health.
Moneyline: A monster comeback game from Towns would equate for a big win for the Timberwolves (-190).
ATS: A 4.5 point advantage for the Grizzlies won’t be a factor at all since Minnesota is poised to take a double-digit win.
TOTALs: This game will exceed the projected O/U totals of 227 points. Minnesota is scoring 118 points per game this season while allowing opponents to score 112 points per contest. Given the Grizzlies scored more than 100 points in three straight games, picking over appears to be the smarter bet.
Score Prediction: 123-108 Timberwolves
