3 Best Prop Bets for Timberwolves vs Grizzlies NBA Playoffs Game 5 on FanDuel Sportsbook
Tuesday's NBA slate of 2021-22 playoff games includes a showdown between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Grizzlies as the 6-point home favorites over the Timberwolves.
Here are the three of the best prop bets for the Timberwolves-Grizzlies game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Timberwolves vs Grizzlies Player Props
1. Desmond Bane - Points: Over 20.5 (-110)
With Ja Morant being relatively quiet this series, Desmond Bane has stepped up his game. The 23-year-old is averaging 23.4 PPG this series and is fresh off a 34-point effort in Game 4. Bane shouldn't have an issue hitting the over on the prop considering how it's something he's done in nine of his last 16 games, averaging 21.3 PPG over that stretch. Even if Morant does bounce back, Bane has seen at least 18 field-goal attempts in the last two contests, giving him enough volume to hit the over if that trend continues.
2. Karl-Anthony Towns - Rebounds: Over 10.5 (+102)
Karl-Anthony Towns has been proving why he's one of the best big men in the NBA today, recording a series-leading 10.8 rebounds after the first four contests. Although odds favor the under on this prop, don't hesitate to take the over. Towns has finished with at least 11 rebounds in five of his last seven games, including three times this series. He took his game to another level with a 33-point, 14-rebound double-double in Game 4, so look for him to continue to build on that performance tonight while providing solid betting value along the way.
3. Anthony Edwards - Threes Made: Over 3.5 (-104)
Anthony Edwards was solid from deep in his sophomore season, averaging 3.0 made threes per game. He's since upped his performance this series, finishing with exactly four-three pointers in each game so far on a .421 3P%. Edwards is averaging 9.5 attempted threes per game so far in the playoffs and with the way he's converting on those opportunities, that trend is expected to continue tonight. Until the Grizzlies begin to defend him better on the perimeter, expect the three-pointers to keep flowing for Edwards.
