NBA Basketball Betting Online – Minnie Equals Money

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/6/2014 10:01:56 PM

For a team that was horrible last year, the Minnesota Timberwolves seem to have turned it around and online sports betting players need to take notice.

They covered their 6 of their first 8 games of the season and they have done it with youth and the new kids in town, Ricky Rubio and Derrick Williams.

To get a feel about what other coaches think about these two exciting players, consider what Spurs Coach Popovich recently said about Ricky Rubio. Pop: “He’s doing exactly what Manu Ginobili did when he came. Ricky’s a veteran, he’s a pro. He’s been in big games, he’s been in tough games, he’s played against good players. He’s not going to be awed by this NBA stuff at all. He’s going to come in and play, as we’ve seen.”

This is high praise for a coach that throws around compliments like manhole covers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had the first round pick in the draft this year and Coach Byron Scott worked out Derrick Williams twice before the draft. He’s his assessment on Williams, Scott: “I just didn't know what position to say he was or is. Is he a power forward? Is he a small forward? I still think he's going to be one of those guys who is going to be in the league for a long time and averages 15, 17 points a game. But at that particular time, with that No. 1 pick, what we really, truly needed was a point guard and that's what we went after."

Scott knows a little about talent since he was on the All Rookie team as a player, won three championships playing with Magic Johnson and was also coach of the year in 2008.

All Star Kevin Love is by far the best player on the Wolves and he can not only give you a double/double in his sleep, he can hit the outside shot. Starting forward Michael Beasley is much more comfortable this season and improving center project Darko Milicic has become a serviceable center.

Minnesota has also gotten off to this great sport betting start mainly without the services of J.J. Barea, who has been injured. Barea was arguably the most important cog outside of Dirk Nowitzki for the champion Dallas Mavericks last season.

Looking to the schedule this week, online sports players can assume Minnesota will have some success. They are in Atlanta on Wednesday and could be close to double/digit dogs.

They then have a day off and host the in transition Sacramento Kings, then have another day off before hosting the struggling Detroit Pistons.

Minnesota then has to go to the Staples Center to play the Los Angeles Clippers, and then go back-to-back in Utah on the 29th.

Realistically speaking, the two home games are against weaker teams and they will have a legit shot to steal one of the three online sports book games on the road.

The main concern about the Wolves is they have to take care of the ball better. If they can do that in the next week, those in Minnesota should be smiling.
