Basketball Betting – Minnesota Timberwolves at Charlotte Bobcats

Basketball betting on Monday includes a matchup between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Bobcats.

Online NBA betting information shows that this is the first of a three game road trip for the Timberwolves. The Bobcats are small basketball odds favorites in this matchup.

Basketball betting history shows that Charlotte has won five of the last eight meetings between the two teams. Charlotte is also 5-3 against the basketball betting line in those games. At Charlotte, the Bobcats are 3-1 straight up against Minnesota and 2-2 against the basketball betting number. Last season the Bobcats won both meetings against Minnesota, winning 121-119 at home and 109-89 on the road according to basketball betting results.

Minnesota has struggled for the most part this season although they are just about .500 versus the online NBA betting number. Al Jefferson has been about the only bright spot for Minnesota as he leads the team in scoring and rebounding according to basketball betting stats. Randy Foye leads the team in assists but the team is looking for him to do more.

Charlotte has been a success against the basketball betting pointspread, despite having a losing record. The Bobcats are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, ranking in the Top 5 according to online NBA betting stats. Emeka Okafor leads the team in rebounding while Jason Richardson leads the team in scoring according to basketball betting stats. Charlotte has a number of young players that could impact basketball betting odds in the future. D. J. Augustin is their rookie guard and they also have young players in Okafor, Raymond Felton and Alexis Ajinca.

Gamblers looking at the total should know that five of the eight meetings between the two teams have gone over the online NBA betting number. Most of those meetings were a couple of years ago and with Charlotte playing tough defense and Minnesota struggling on offense, the basketball betting total could be low in this one.
