Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Timberwolves going undefeated through the first three games of the season has been quite a surprise so far, but the performance of Karl-Anthony Towns is certainly no fluke. The All-Star big man has been a force on both ends of the floor, averaging 32 points on 52% FG and 51.7% 3PTS. In Sunday’s ballgame against the Miami Heat, Towns recorded 23 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists, while Andrew Wiggins and Jeff Teague added 25 and 21 respectively.
Players to Watch: Karl-Anthony Towns (33.0 PPG, 13.3 RPG, 5.0 APG), Andrew Wiggins (20.7 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 0.7 APG), Jeff Teague (29.3 PPG, 2.0 RPG, 5.7 APG)
Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Sixers’ starting five has been a pain to deal with for their first three opponents. In the latest win vs. the Atlanta Hawks 105-103, Joel Embiid dominated with 36 points, 15 boards, and 5 assists after sitting the game vs. Pistons because of an ankle injury. Ben Simmons had a pedestrian 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists while Tobias Harris also put up a solid all-around game with 13 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (25.5 PPG, 13.0 RPG, 4.0 APG), Tobias Harris (19.0 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 3.3 APG), Ben Simmons (16.7 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 8.3 APG)

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Picks
The Sixers have emerged as the team-to-beat in the East after just three games. Still, the numbers showed that this team is far from being untouchable. Despite boasting a tall lineup, Philadelphia ranks just 14th league-wide in points per game (112) and a disappointing 24th in points allowed per game (102.3). The Timberwolves, meanwhile, are 5th in the league in scoring (121.3) and 15th in points allowed per contest (111), proving that they are really a different squad this season.
Moneyline: The Sixers opened at -275, while the Knicks set at +230, per major online sportsbook. Based on their current form, this game can really be entertaining with multiple rallies and lead changes. However, in the end, I feel the Timberwolves can pull off another surprise especially if Towns drops another monster stats line.
ATS: The +9 Sixers is sporting a dominant 9-1 ATS slate in the last 10 meetings with the Timberwolves. They have been really good when playing Minnesota. Then again, this T-Wolves team is different from the previous years. Towns are playing with a chip on his shoulder this season, and that’s enough reason why I feel the Wolves can win the game and cover the spread.
TOTALs: The highest O/U total is set at 225 points. The T-Wolves are averaging 121.33 PPG, while the Sixers are scoring 112.00 PPPG. As good as the Sixers are on paper, stats are showing they aren’t that imposing on that defensive end of the floor. With that, I can say the Wolves will definitely score at least 110 points while the Sixers will easily breach the century mark as well. Pick: Over 225 points.
Score Prediction: 115-107 Timberwolves
