NBA Betting Online – 2010-2011 Minnesota Timberwolves Preview

The Minnesota Timberwolves won just 15 games last season and they also struggled against the NBA betting online point spread.

It might not be much better in 2010-2011 as the Timberwolves still are lacking talent but they do have a few young players who could impact the NBA betting line as the season progresses

Last Year’s Record 15-67 SU, 37-44-1 ATS
The Timberwolves were not a good team last season. They won just 15 games straight up and just 37 against the spread at Sbgglobal.  Minnesota simply did not have enough scoring to win consistently.  It might be the same story this season.  The Timberwolves are counting on a lot of young players and that means inconsistent scoring.

Projected Starting Lineup
Guard - Jonny Flynn
Guard – Wesley Johnson
Center – Darko Milicic
Forward – Michael Beasley
Forward – Kevin Love

It will be interesting to watch Wesley Johnson in his rookie season but other than that, there is not much to like about Minnesota in NBA betting.  The team is hoping that Darko Milicic will turn into a player.  Keep hoping Minnesota because it is not going to happen. The Timberwolves are throwing millions away on Milicic which shows how mismanaged this team is.  Michael Beasley is a good player who will put up numbers but Miami didn’t think enough of him to keep him so you have to wonder about his character and there are questions about his work ethic.  Jonny Flynn played well at times last season as he averaged 13.5 points and 4.4 assists per game. Flynn is not a superstar guard though and he cannot carry a team. Corey Brewer is a nice role player as is Luke Ridnour. Picking up Martell Webster could be a good move as well.  The Timberwolves are expecting big things from Kevin Love but he is not a great scorer. He averaged 14 points per game a year ago but he did pull down 11 rebounds per game.  Minnesota plays in a tough division and they are not going to be competitive on most nights although they could cover the NBA betting online number on occasion.  They hope to build for the future with their young players and give fans a reason to hope for the future.
