Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Both the Timberwolves and Cavaliers will be without star players on Friday night, with both Karl-Anthony Towns and Donovan Mitchell missing out due to injury.

The Timberwolves come into this game with a record of 44-19 and are currently the number one seed in the Western Conference. 

On the other side, the Cleveland Cavaliers come into this game with a record of 40-22 and are currently the third seed in the Eastern Conference.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Cleveland Cavaliers betting picks and predictions

Under 209 points (-110)

Our main Timberwolves vs. Cavaliers prediction will target the Under in this game. Besides the Timberwolves having a slightly better record, these teams are extremely even. 

The Cavaliers are averaging 114 points per game (18th), while the Timberwolves are right behind them, averaging 113.3 points per game (19th). This goes for defense as well as the Timberwolves are allowing 106.5 points per game (1st) and the Cavaliers are allowing 109.5 points per game (2nd).

Another factor that helps the under is that both teams are dealing with injuries. Most notably, the Cavaliers are likely going to be without Donovan Mitchell and the Timberwolves are expected to be missing Karl-Anthony Towns. 

Both of these players are crucial for their respective teams, meaning that this game should not be as free scoring without them, especially considering how good both defenses have been. For that reason, backing the Under 209 points (-110) will be our best bet.  

Jarrett Allen Over 17.5 Points (-125)

For this player prop, we will be targeting Jarrett Allen from the Cleveland Cavaliers to go over his points prop tonight.

Allen is the third leading scorer on the Cavaliers, averaging 15.9 points per game. He has scored at least 18 points in nine of his last 12 games and a total of 24 times this season.

Further, the Timberwolves are likely to be without Karl-Anthony Towns, who would pose the biggest threat to Allen in the low post.

With Towns out, expect Allen to dominate down low and post a huge game. For that reason, backing Allen to go over his points prop will be one of our best bets.
