Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves are currently the worst team in the league but they have Karl-Anthony Towns. Things are potentially turning around and Anthony Edwards may had the dunk of the year as well. The energy is good around the Timberwolves camp but the real question is, would it be worth it to pick it up or add another key player from the upcoming NBA Draft in the likes of Cade Cunninghan and Jalen Green. Nonetheless, that is debatable but the future of the Timberwolves looks really bright especially that they are developing really young and raw talents.

New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks are coming off from a tough loss that snapped their three-game winning streak but that doesn’t stop them from a huge comeback. The Knicks are very much in the playoff picture but they need to get into another streak in order to solidify their position. Their record is now at 14-16 and this is much better than what they have from last year. Julius Randle looks like a shoo-in in this upcoming NBA All-Star game while RJ Barrett has been more consistent lately. The two young athletes have Derrick Rose in the locker and the former MVP will be glad to mentor them.

Players to Watch: J. Randle PF 30 GP 30 GS 36.7 MIN 23.2 PTS 1.4 OR 9.5 DR 10.9 REB 5.5 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 3.3 TO 3.1 PF 1.7 AST/TO 20.76 PER
