Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The T-Wolves have never tasted a victory ever since D’Angelo Russell played his first game with the team. Monday’s 139-123 loss to the Mavericks marked another low for Minnesota, who is also missing the service of franchise big man Karl-Anthony Towns due to injury. Russell finished the game with 29 points and Malik Beasley had 21 in the loss.

Players to Watch: D’Angelo Russell (23.8 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 8.5 APG)

Malik Beasley (21.8 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 2.0 APG)

Juancho Hernangomez (12.8 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 0.8 APG)

Miami Heat Betting

The Miami Heat are struggling to play consistent basketball ever since injecting Jae Crowder, Solomon Hill and Andre Iguoadala into their lineup. After blowing out the Cleveland Cavaliers 124-105, the Heat fell to the same team, 125-119, two days after. Bam Adebayo recorded 22 points, 13 rebounds and 9 assists, Kendrick Nunn fired for 21 and Goran Dragic pumped up 22 markers off the bench.

Players to Watch: Jimmy Butler (20.6 PPG, 6.9 RPG, 6.2 APG)

Goran Dragic (16.3 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 5.0 APG)

Jae Crowder (16.2 PPG, 6.5 RPG and 1.7 APG)

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Miami Heat Betting Picks

NBA odds are boding well for the Miami Heat, who are listed at NBA Moneyline and NBA spread favorites. The Wolves have been in this losing funk since they stunned the Clippers just after the trade deadline. As for the Heat, finding the right mix of players on the floor has been challenging for coach Erik Spoelstra but I have confidence that the Coach of the Year frontrunner will figure things out very soon.

Moneyline: Bet on the Heat to take an SU win. Miami lost to Minnesota, 116-109, in their first meeting, yet a lot of stuff had changed since then. I feel the Heat will cruise to an easy win especially if Butler returns to the lineup.

ATS: Pick the Heat to cover the spread. Miami is 8-2 ATS at home against Western Conference teams.

TOTALs: Pick the OVER. I am expecting a fast-paced game with lots of threes and transition points.

Score Prediction: 120 – 111 Heat
