Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Orlando Magic Prediction

Markelle Fultz Over 22.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (+102) Bet $100 to collect $202

We're at Barstool for this one since they've got the best price in the world right now. Caesars and DraftKings are in the -120s for this thing, and some of the sharper shops that we can't talk about have it at -115. If I had to guess, I'd say Barstool adjusts to the rest of the market instead of the other way around. That means we'll beat the market here which is a good thing. Especially given the fact that there is no chance Markelle Fultz ends up with less than 23 PRAs tonight.

Here's the thing about Markelle Fultz. He's a super hard guy to trust with our cash. Still, he owes us from the last time we bet him so he needs to pay us back. It's time we start collecting from these guys since the season will get away from us soon. It's just a smart thing to do. Tonight is good for Fultz since he's in decent form right now as he's been right at 22 in three of the last four games where he's played at least 30 minutes. Plus he's on the road where he averages three more points per game than he does at home. That's big. He should be able to get it done easily in Minnesota.

But the main reason we should put Fultz to work tonight is because he's playing the Minnesota Timberwolves. Only two teams in the entire NBA allow opposing point guards to score more points per game. On top of that, only a couple of teams see the opposing point guards grab more rebounds per game basis. If all that wasn't enough, Minnesota plays fast as hell. Only the Golden State Warriors have seen more possessions on a per-game basis over the last three times out. This feels like the time Markelle went 23-5-8 against the Washington Wizards or maybe even the night he hung a 20-7-6 line on the Denver Nuggets. Either way, this is a good bet.
