Betting on the Minnesota Timberwolves
For those Timberwolves fans that want to get in on the action as their team battles through way to the playoffs, here are a few great betting options.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
Moneyline bets are even simpler than spread bets, as they remove the margin of victory component from the equation. If you bet on the Timberwolves moneyline and they win the game, you'd win the bet. If they lost the game, you'd lose the bet. It's as simple as that.
The odds can be a little confusing to read at first, though. Here's an example:
- Minnesota Timberwolves +180
- Denver Nuggets -210
You can interpret the moneyline (ML) odds in increments of $10 or $100 to make it easier. A $10 bet on the Timberwolves moneyline at +180 would profit $18 if they won the game. The favorites have inverse payouts: A Nuggets moneyline bet a -210 would net $10 for every $21 invested.
The Timberwolves are 30-28-1 against-the-spread this season, putting them right on the mark with their 31-28 normal record. That refers to spread bets, which are popular wager types based on how much a team will win or lose a game by.
Here's an example of a Wolves game:
- Minnesota Timberwolves (+11.5)
- Utah Jazz (-11.5)
In spread bets, the plus and minus signs tell you which team is the underdog or favorite, and the number is the margin of victory expected. In this situation, the Wolves are 11.5-point underdogs. If you bet on the Wolves spread, you would win the bet if they won the game or lost by 11 or fewer points. If the Jazz beat them by 12 or more, that side of the bet would cash.
The Wolves aren't exactly known for their defense, but they have some electrical options on the offensive side of the ball. So it’s no wonder that their 36-23 over/under record puts them at the top of the NBA.
If you want to bet on a high-scoring affair, you would want to eye the total, also called an over/under. These bets are on the combined point output of both teams.
Say the Wolves played the Jazz and the total was set at 224 points. If you wanted to bet against the Wolves' defense, you could bet the over, and you'd cash if the two teams combined for 225 or more points. If they went under 224 points, that bet would lose. If the teams hit exactly 224 points, no worries: Those bets would push and the money would get refunded.
Timberwolves Prop Bets
Anthony Edwards was one of the most exciting rookies last season, and he really found his scoring groove later in the season. If you want to bet just on Edwards, you can do that at any sportsbook. It's called a player prop bet, and it revolves around a specific box score stat. For example, you can bet Edwards to score over/under 21.5 points.
Timberwolves Future Odds
Expectations are rising in Minnesota with KAT, Anthony Edwards and D'Angelo Russell in the fold, which means bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Timberwolves futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Wolves to make the playoffs, win the Northwest Division, win the Western Conference, win the NBA Finals, or even individual awards like Towns winning league MVP.
