Los Angeles Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves Pick

Betting on a man made out of glass is always risky; we risk getting the FantasyLabs notification, “Anthony Davis is headed to the locker room.” With that being said, I don’t foresee the Lakers getting any more bad injury luck, as they are already dealing with a rare LeBron James injury. If there’s one thing about Davis, he will rebound the ball when LeBron is out.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves Prediction

Davis has nine straight games with 14+ rebounds without LeBron, and all we need here is 13. In that nine-game span, he is averaging a ridiculous 17.2 rebounds per game. In his last eight games without LeBron, he has 16+ in every game, which is absolutely unreal. Rudy Gobert isn’t a shooter, so I don’t see Davis getting pulled away from the basket much.

This game has just a 1 point spread, so my fingers are crossed for no strange blowout that hurts his minutes. If Kevon Looney grabbed 17 rebounds against Minnesota a few nights ago, I’m comfortable banking on a more consistent Anthony Davis to do so here tonight. This is a late one, as it’s in Los Angeles, but what’s more fun than sweating out a rebound bet past midnight? Absolutely nothing. Let's roll!
