Now let’s get into our best picks for Heat vs. Timberwolves tonight:

Jimmy Butler More Than 25.5 Points + Rebounds

Jimmy Buckets has been electric again this season and is fresh off a buzzer-beater win over the Bulls. 

He should be more involved tonight with Kyle Lowry out and his season average of 21.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game (27 points + rebounds per game) gives this good betting value. 

Butler has hit this over in just 12 of 22 games, but has hit it in three of his past four games. He’s hit this over in 2-of-4 games against Minnesota as a member of the Heat, and has gotten at least 22 PR in each of those games. 

It also doesn’t hurt that players defending Butler – Anthony Edwards and Jaden McDaniels – are both listed as game-time decisions. 

Karl-Anthony Towns Less Than 22.5 Points

Towns is averaging 22.4 points per game, which may give you some pause, but he’s had a few HUGE games that are inflating that stat line a bit. 

He’s had 23+ points in 12-of-24 games and has averaged 18 points per game against Miami in his last five games against the Heat dating back to 2021 – hitting this over twice in those five games.

Bam Adebayo likely has a little something to do with that given that he likely won’t have to pay too much attention to Rudy Gobert on offense. 

This under is particularly attractive if Edwards doesn’t play, so stay tuned on his status for tonight’s game. 

Rudy Gobert Less Than 1.5 Assists

This pick might make you cringe at first because it could take just two plays for this to lose.

But consider how OFTEN Gobert has less than 2 assists. He’s had 2+ assists in just 6-of-24 games this season, averaging 1.2 assists per game. 

He’s only had 2+ assists in 10 career games against Miami, and both of those games came in 2018 with the Jazz!

Don’t let a low number scare you away from a line that hits consistently.
