Minnesota Timberwolves Player Stats
The 2020-21 season was a miserable one for the Minnesota Timberwolves, who fired former head coach Ryan Saunders during the year and finished with just 23 wins. It wasn't all bad, though, as 2020 NBA Draft pick Anthony Edwards showed some incredibly promising signs in his rookie season.
Will Edwards continue to progress into a franchise cornerstone type of player? Will Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell help lead the Wolves back into the playoff hunt in 2021-22? Read more about the Timberwolves and see their odds, schedule, injury report, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, and more.
Minnesota Timberwolves Point Spreads
Expectations weren't high for the Timberwolves last season, and still Minnesota posted a losing 33-36-3 record against-the-spread. 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.
Minnesota Timberwolves Moneylines
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.
Minnesota Timberwolves Over/Unders
The Wolves aren't exactly known for their defense under Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell. 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.
Minnesota Timberwolves Props
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.
If you think Anthony Edwards can help turn things around in Minnesota sooner rather than later, take a look at futures bets, which are wagers on end-of-season outcomes. Some Wolves futures include their odds to make the playoffs, over/under their season win total, and more.
