Fresh off a commanding win against Portland, the Timberwolves are sharpening their claws, already sporting a polished style.

Bucks vs Timberwolves ATS Pick: Timberwolves -4½

If you’re looking for winning basketball bets online, look no further than the Timberwolves -4½ to take this game with a cushion.

The Bucks are struggling with their shooting, especially on the road, and face the Timberwolves’ top 3-point defense and elite rim protectors like Rudy Gobert. The outlook isn’t great with Milwaukee’s poor record as road underdogs and missing key player Khris Middleton.

Meanwhile, the Timberwolves, thriving under pressure and leading in defense, are expected to leverage their recent momentum and home advantage.

Considering Milwaukee’s recent downturn under coach Doc Rivers and Minnesota’s victory in their last meeting, betting on the Timberwolves -4 ½ ATS seems wise as they aim to continue their dominance and sweep the season series against the Bucks.

Bucks vs Timberwolves Player Prop Pick: Damian Lillard Over 5½ Assists (-152)

The Vegas NBA betting odds for this prop are generous, with Lillard’s total set at 5.5 assists. Lillard has gone over this total in back-to-back games and five of his last seven. Despite my feelings that the Bucks will drop this game, if they hope to keep it close, they will need Lillard to play the role of grand facilitator and dish to his teammates early and often.
