If not for Jimmy Butler willing the Timberwolves to the postseason in 2018, Minnesota would be looking at the league’s longest playoff drought. They’ve had losing seasons in 16 of their last 17 campaigns, they haven’t finished higher than fourth in their conference since 2014 and they’re not projected to fare much better in 2021-22 unless they swing a major trade —which may shift some NBA futures.

Timberwolves Win-Total Betting

The Line: 33.5 (-110) at FanDuel

It’s been a rough go for the Timberwolves the last three seasons, but it’s impossible to overlook a core of Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell. They’re awfully thin after that core, but all three players have the potential to make a jump in 2022 — and let’s not forget that they may wind up trading for Sixers point guard Ben Simmons.

We’re actually high on Minnesota’s potential to put it all together — and definitely higher than most betting sites.

The Bet: Sportsbooks have this number right, and we’re cautiously leaning toward the over here at FanDuel.

Timberwolves Division Odds

The Line: +10000 with BetMGM

The Northwest Division has been a three-team race ever since the Thunder broke up, with the Jazz, Nuggets and at times the Blazers battling it out. The Timberwolves have been in limbo of late — better than OKC but nowhere near the aforementioned three contenders — and 2022 will be no different. This is a top-heavy division, and a best-case scenario has Minnesota finishing third.

The Bet: The Wolves have never won the Northwest. It won’t happen this year. Pass on these NBA odds at BetMGM Sportsbook.

Timberwolves Conference Odds

The Line: +20000 at WynnBET

The farthest the Timberwolves franchise has ever advanced is the Western Conference Finals in 2004. But prime Kevin Garnett isn’t walking through that door — sorry, KAT — meaning the Timberwolves will once again be closer to the Lottery than they are a meaningful game in May.

The Bet: Check back in a few years, but the West won’t go through Minnesota in 2022. Pass on this wager at WynnBET.

Timberwolves NBA Title Odds

The Line: +20000 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Even if they swing a trade for Ben Simmons, the roster isn’t deep enough to consider themselves contenders in what is an incredibly deep Western Conference. Their best bet is Anthony Edwards turning into a superstar to put next to Towns, which somehow attracts free agents to Minnesota.

As for 2022, the franchise will go another season without a Larry O’Brien trophy in the building. NBA betting sites have given the Wolves very long NBA title odds here, but they’re not worth betting.

The Bet: Simmons or no Simmons, odds on these NBA picks have no value. Pass on this one at PointsBet Sportsbook.

Best Timberwolves Player Prop Bets

The Line: Karl Towns, NBA leading rebounder, +1300 at DraftKings

Three short years ago, Towns averaged 12.4 rebounds per game. Minnesota’s frontcourt depth is laughable, and Towns is good for 33+ minutes per game, meaning he certainly could make a jump in his seventh NBA season to the top of the league lead in rebounding. It’s not offered on many betting apps, but we like it where it is.

The Bet: Grab Towns at these NBA odds at DraftKings Sportsbook if you think he makes a jump — and Simmons stays out of Minnesota.
