Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves are on a three-game losing streak heading to this matchup against the Orlando Magic. Their most recent loss came from the Miami Heat with the final score settling at 121-112. Karl-Anthony Towns led the team in scoring with 27 points along with six rebounds and four assists while rookie Anthony Edwards continues to impress doing 25 points, six rebounds and three assists. D’Angelo Russell was steady at the point guard position with 17 points, four assists and three rebounds. Ricky Rubio did well with 16 points, nine assists and two steals.

Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic are on back-to-back losses and this team has won three of their last six games. They are still one of the teams located at the bottom of the NBA Eastern Conference standings with only the Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons below them. Their most recent matchup was against the Charlotte Hornets and lost that game by 10 points. So far, the Magic has been shutting down players and Wendell Carter Jr is questionable to play for this game. This team is NBA lottery bound and will look to find rebuilding blocks for the future of the franchise.
