Minnesota Timberwolves (season preview)
Minnesota Timberwolves (2016-17: 31-51 SU, 37-44-1 ATS)
Odds to Win the Division: +250
Season Win Total: 48.5
Why to Bet On The Timberwolves: It was a great offseason for Minnesota as the team added Jimmy Butler to an already great duo of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Butler brings a scoring mentality as well as someone who is willing to share the basketball. Towns averaged 25.1 points per game and 12.3 rebounds per contest last season, while Wiggins chipped in 23.6 ppg. Jamal Crawford will be a solid scorer off the bench even at the age of 37.
Why Not to Bet On The Timberwolves: It's not that easy to just add all these new pieces and have them gel right away. Going from Ricky Rubio to Jeff Teague at point guard isn't that much of an upgrade. Tom Thibodeau supposedly is a defensive coach, but it didn't show last season. The lack of a true perimeter shooter will hurt when opponents decide to collapse down low in the paint against Minnesota's athleticism.
Season Win Total Pick: Under 48.5

Though I successfully played against them at Arizona, where they failed to cover, the Bears still found a way to win the game. They're now 2-1 and could easily be 3-0. They know that they can ill afford to "relax" though. After this game, the Bears are on the road (at Miami) and then they host New England. In other words, taking care of business here is key. With the Bucs off a Monday night game, playing on a short week, expect the Bears to "keep on rolling," covering the small number along the way. Consider Chicago.
Burns was a PERFECT 3-0 with his "top-rated" plays on the weekend, winning with Stanford/Oregon 'over,' the Arizona Cardinals & the Carolina Panthers, his NFL G.O.Y. Congrats to the many who cashed. Having a MASSIVE MONTH, Ben is now a SIZZLING 17-6 over the L6 days, a SICK 7-1 with top plays. While WINNING BIG in Sept. IS important, its Burns' long-term success, particularly with his BIGGEST plays, which really sets him apart. Top plays on a multi-year run which has produced $84,530 IN PROFITS. All records on the line Monday!
