Timberwolves vs Pelicans Best Prop Bet

All Timberwolves-Pelicans prop bets and odds are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

- Jrue Holiday Points: Over 19.5 (-108) – Holiday could be in for a big game against the shoddy Minnesota Timberwolves' defense. The T-Wolves struggle to defend in two key areas: transition and beyond the arc. Minnesota allows 14.4 fast break points per game, and allows opponents to hit an alarming 37.2 percent of their three-point attempts. That could spell trouble against Holiday, as he excels in transition and is averaging 5.6 three-point attempts per game over his last five. Holiday hasn't been hitting those at a high rate, but he should find more success against a Minnesota defense that is terrible at defending three-pointers. Expect Holiday to carve up the Timberwolves and put 20-plus points on the board tonight.
