Saturday's NBA slate of playoff games includes a Game 1 showdown between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Grizzlies as a 6.5-point road favorites over the T-Wovles with the total up to 238.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Timberwolves-Grizzlies game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Timberwolves vs Grizzlies Player Props

1. Karl-Anthony Towns - Points: Over 25.5 (-102)

The Timberwolves doubled their wins from 23 last season to 46 and the playoffs in 2021-22. The high-scoring T-Wolves led the league in scoring (115.9), just in front of their playoff opponent Memphis Grizzlies (115.6). Karl-Anthony Towns can post up, shoot from distance and storm past defenders on drives when contested too closely. He ranked top 10 in the league in Player Efficiency Rating, per ESPN, and averaged 24.6 points per game this season. Towns had 22 points against the Grizzlies Feb. 24, but played limited minutes (28).

2. Karl-Anthony Towns - Rebounds: Over 9.5 (+104)

Towns had 11 rebounds against the Grizzlies Feb. 24, and he's pulled down at least 10 in four of the T-Wolves last five games. He had nine against Denver and reigning Most Valuable Player and current MVP favorite Nikola Jokic in a tougher match-up at high-scoring win at Denver April 1.

3. D'Angelo Russell - Points: Over 19.5 (-112)

D'Angelo Russell poured in 37 points against the Grizzlies on Feb. 22. He should be good for double-digit shots, and took 21 against Memphis last meeting. If the pace is faster as expected and more fouls called, Russell will also get to the free throw line more to get over his points prop.
