Minnesota Timberwolves vs Houston Rockets Prediction: A Lottery Ticket Worth Riding

I’m not normally an advocate for longshots but this one is juicy. A longshot play from Minnesota vs Houston to get our week started with a bang.

Karl-Anthony Towns 40+ PTS / Jalen Green 35+ PTS (+10918) (Bet $100 to win $10,918)

If you just lay $5 on this you would win $545.90. Lets me explain why this is worth a look. This game has blowout written all over it but KAT has such a great history vs Houston. KAT has scored 40 and 30 points vs them this year. Already hitting 40 once is a great sign that he’s capable of doing it again.

Houston has been abysmal defensively vs big men and especially now that Christian Wood is out for the season, do we really think Sengun is about to lock this man up? Of course not.

Jalen Green hasn’t been great vs Minnesota this year but he has really caught his stride lately. The rookie has 30+ points in three straight and his points have gone up in each game. Starting off with 30, and then 32 and then 33. Does the trend continue and he slightly bumps it again to 35? It’s worth a sprinkle to find out.

Jalen Green has not been afraid to shoot whatsoever. He has shot 24+ FGA in three straight games which is just insane. Although he hasn’t done great vs Minnesota this year we have still seen the T-Wolves struggle against shooting guards in general so it makes me feel like he’s due a great performance vs them.

Both of those are hittable especially if this game somehow remains close. Although the Rockets are tanking they’ve been playing the young guys in blowouts regardless. If Minnesota does blowout I think it could be at the hands of KAT who has arguably his easiest matchup of the year, we all saw how hot he can get when dropped 60 vs San Antonio. Let's hope he can abuse a different Texas team tonight. This longshot is much smaller odds than other books so Fanduel seems like the only book worth throwing the dart at. Even a $1 bettor would make over $100 here, it’s fun.
