Trail Blazers vs Bulls

Hornets vs Timberwolves Pick: Timberwolves +4.5

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets face off in a game that we don’t see very often as these teams are in separate conferences. They also aren’t very old franchises, so both of these squads are relatively new and don’t have a ton of history. They do have tons of potential on both sides and this is a game you will not want to miss out on.

Make sure to check out the Hornets vs Timberwolves predictions above as we dive into which side of the bet we should be on. Let’s dive into how this game will go down and who will end up covering the spread. You will not want to miss out.

Hornets vs Timberwolves Betting Pick

This game will take place at 7:00 PM ET in the Spectrum Center

Why bet the Timberwolves:

Karl-Anthony Towns returned from COVID in the last game and played 30 minutes right off the bat. It resulted in the Timberwolves keeping it within seven points with the Los Angeles Clippers, who are certainly better than the Hornets. If Towns is going to play 30+ minutes off the bat, this is a better team than they’re getting credit for.

✅ The Charlotte Hornets rank 26th against opposing C’s. This should be a big game for Towns, who put up 30 points against the Hornets just last season. Malik Beasley is going to play extremely well with Towns as well, and he will have his own success in the paint here.

✅ The Hornets are the more efficient offense and defense, but it’s hard to trust any of these numbers as Karl-Anthony Towns is one of the best players in the country and he hasn’t been able to play for most of the season. The Timberwolves are an underrated with Towns back and I am going to bet the for at least a few games.

✅ Timberwolves are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

✅ Hornets are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games as a home favorite.

The Pick: Timberwolves +4.5

Using the same hypothetical example as above, let’s say the over/under set between these teams is at 215.5. A bet on the over would call for the pair of teams to score 216 points or more while a wager on the under would ask for 215 or fewer points.

If you want to bet the favorite, you will pay over $100 to return that same $100. If you bet on the underdog, it will cost less than $100 to win that same $100.

Timberwolves vs Hornets Odds

Odds in the NBA tend to change more than any other sport and it’s not by accident. The biggest reason for this is the amount of late breaking news that comes out across the league. Opposed to other sports, the majority of basketball news comes out sometime between the morning and game time.

This can and will cause panic between sportsbooks and bettors as both look to find the sweet-spot in terms of a spread and total. This is when you can take advantage. It just comes down to being fast and knowing which side of things you want to be on. Make sure to check out the Timberwolves vs Hornets odds above as we highlight our best bets.
