All times Eastern, and all chances by means of Caesars Sportsbook

🔥 The Hot Ticket

🏀Timberwolves at Knicks, 7:30 p.m. | TELEVISION: NBA.TV

Latest Odds:

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Pick: Timberwolves -3.0 (-110): As I pointed out in the intro, numerous groups played on MLK Day on Monday. The Timberwolves were one group that didn’t take the court, however the Knicks were in action. With that in mind, I’m more than comfy rolling with the fresher group in this one. 

The Timberwolves have actually won 5 of their last 7 video games and are coming off a convincing 119-99 win over the Warriors. Minnesota has among the greater scoring offenses around the NBA as they’re putting 110.1 points-per-game. On top of that, star huge guy Karl-Anthony Towns has actually been on fire since late. Towns has actually balanced 29.3 points and 9.3 rebounds over the group’s last 4 video games and I do not see the Knicks having the ability to slow him down. The Timberwolves are likewise 8-3-1 versus the spread over their last 12 video games.

The Knicks fell 97-87 at the hands of the Hornets on Monday and just shot 40.0 percent because contest. In addition, the Knicks aren’t a group that ratings a lots of points on a nighttime basis. New York averages simply 104.2 points per contest, which is fourth-worst in the whole league. On the 2nd night of a back-to-back and the spread being a little number, I’m merely fading the Knicks in a huge method.

Key Trend: Timberwolves are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 roadway video games versus a group with a losing house record

🏀 One more Timberwolves vs. Knicks choice

The Pick: D’Angelo Russell Over 6.5 helps (-130)I’m currently fading the Knicks when it pertains to the spread, so let’s continue that pattern. Over the Timberwolves’ last 8 video games, guard D’Angelo Russell has actually signed up a minimum of 7 helps in 6 of those contests. Additionally, Russell has actually taped double-digit helps in those 6 celebrations in which he exceeded this number. Despite shooting simply 2-of-9 from the field versus the Warriors, Russell still saw the court extremely well as he dispensed 12 helps on the night. With a group that boasts weapons like Anthony Edwards and Towns, Russell ought to have no issue reaching this number.

Key Trend: Russell has actually had at least 7 helps in 6 of his last 8 video games


Hurricanes at Bruins, 7 p.m. | TELEVISION: NHL.TV

Latest Odds:

Over 5.5

The Pick: Over 5.5 objectives (-110) — Betting the NHL is constantly about the goaltending match, however often even with excellent goaltenders, it simply does not matter. The Hurricanes will be most likely be beginning Frederik Andersen in between the pipelines while the Bruins will send out Tuukka Rask to the ice in this match. It’s been obvious that Andersen has actually been among the most remarkable goalies in the league this season. He boasts a 2.03 goals-against-average (2nd in the NHL) and a .928 conserve portion (3rd in the NHL) while betting among the much better groups throughout the league.

Meanwhile, the sample size isn’t rather as huge for Rask. This will be simply the 2nd start of the season for Rask after he just recently re-signed with the group following offseason hip surgical treatment. The 34-year old netminder stopped 25 of 27 shots in a 3-2 Bruins’ win over the Flyers. It’s worth keeping in mind that the Flyers have actually lost 8 successive video games and have actually remained in an outright totally free fall considering that shooting head coach Alain Vigneault.

I would not be amazed to see Rask quit more than a couple of objectives in this one thinking about that the Hurricanes are among the more deadly offenses around. The Hurricanes typical 3.4 goals-per-game and have actually scored a minimum of 4 objectives in 4 of their last 6 video games. The over simply makes excessive sense in this area.

Key Trend: The over is 6-1 in the Bruins’ last 7 video games versus a group with a winning portion above .600
