How to Bet the Minnesota vs. Milwaukee NBA Odds & TV Info
Why Bet the Minnesota Timberwolves
Minnesota (19-42 SU, 27-33 ATS) has lost two straight and three of its last four games overall, but they have some of the best young talent in the game today with No. 1 overall draft picks Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns heading up a group that also includes 20-year-old slam dunk champion Zach LaVine as well as swingman Shabazz Muhammad (23 years old), front court big man Gorgui Dieng (26) and underachieving point guard Ricky Rubio (25).
Towns is averaging a stellar 17.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in what looks like a “Rookie of the Year” kind of campaign. Wiggins, who leads the team in scoring at 20.7 points per night, win the award a year ago.
Why Bet the Milwaukee Bucks
Milwaukee (25-36 SU, 30-30 ATS) has lost three of its last four games including its 104-99 loss against Indiana on Wednesday, but they also possess a ton of young talent, though not quite as much as Minnesota. Second-year forward Jabari Parker, the No. 2 overall pick behind Wiggins in the 2014 draft, is averaging a stellar 22.1 points per game over his last seven while shooting 50 percent or better from the floor in all but one of those contests.
Milwaukee is currently six games behind the No. 8 spot in the East with 21 games remaining. 21-year-old do-it-all forward Giannis “The Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo is also starting to blossom more than ever. Playing point guard since the All-Star break, Antetokounmpo is averaging 17.8 points, 10.6 rebounds and 7.8 assists in the last five games with two triple-doubles.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
With the T-Wolves and Bucks combining to score just over 200 points per game while allowing a combined 208.4 points per contest defensively, I think the Over is the best wager for this intriguing pairing.
The Over is 7-2 in Minnesota’s last nine games against Eastern Conference teams and 20-6-1 in their last 27 road games. The Over is also 8-2 in Milwaukee’s last 10 games following an ATS loss and 12-4 in their last 16 games following a straight up loss.
My final score prediction: Milwaukee 106 Minnesota 102
