Why should you bet on the Timberwolves?
There is a lot to like about this young team. In their loss to Washington, for example, Ricky Rubio had 22 points and six boards, Zach LaVine added 21 points and Karl-Anthony Towns posted 14 points, 15 boards and five assists. The Timberwolves also enjoyed a 29-9 advantage over the Wizards. The problem was ball control, as Minnesota gave the ball away 19 times. The fact that Kevin Garnett, Nikola Pekovic and Nemanja Bjelica are day-to-day could be a problem, too, so you’ll need to check the injury report before you place your bet on this game. However, with a full roster and better ball control, this is a winnable game.
Why should you put your money on Milwaukee?
Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the most intriguing players in the NBA, and the 22 points that this 6-11 point guard poured in against Indiana showed just how quickly he is growing. Even though he is just in his third year, he is becoming an increasingly savvy playmaker, and his height allows him to see passing lanes that shorter point guards can’t see. While Michael Carter-Williams remains on the bench with patella tendinitis, Anteotokounmpo is an intriguing option. The Bucks continue to scuffle in the standings, failing to go on a consistent run, but playing at home against a young team could bode well for Milwaukee.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
I like the young Timberwolves to come into Milwaukee and steal a win, as their hustle will stay but their ball control problems will be more under control. My predicted final score is 103-95.
