With so much unknown about the Minnesota Timberwolves going into the season, Vegas might be undervaluing the Wolves.

With the 2020-21 NBA season nearing, now is the most popular time for sports bettors to make their futures bets for the upcoming season, and there may be some value in the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Sportsbooks across the country will be taking bets for the NBA title winners, season-long win totals, MVP and other award winners, and more over the coming weeks leading up to opening day on Dec. 22.

The Timberwolves provide a unique opportunity for bettors as a team whose roster has spent very little time on the floor together, creating a lot of unknowns for fans and bettors. What will the starting lineup look like? How will Karl-Anthony Towns perform early on in the season? What will be Anthony Edwards’ role?

Despite this uncertainty, this is a very important season for the Wolves. After sharing the court just one time last season, Towns and D’Angelo Russell will finally be able to show the NBA what they are capable of as a duo.

This season is also important because of the team’s lack of a first-round pick in the next draft, as the Wolves’ 2021 pick was traded to Golden State last season. If the team doesn’t do well, the Warriors will be left with a high pick in the first round of next year’s draft, and the Wolves walk away with a poor season and nothing to show for it.

The league hasn’t seen what D’Lo and KAT can do yet, which has also contributed to the amount of uncertainty surrounding the Wolves. This uncertainty has created opportunities for sports bettors who have confidence in D’Lo, KAT and the Wolves this coming season.

It is very possible that sportsbooks are undervaluing the Wolves, and for sports bettors, this at least warrants taking a look at some futures bets before the season starts.

With that said, let’s go through some Timberwolves-related futures bets that might be worth taking. And, of course, If you choose to gamble, please gamble responsibly and legally.
