Best NBA Player Props for Timberwolves vs. Cavaliers: Find Out Why We Like Darius Garland Tonight

Happy Friday to all! After looking at the NBA schedule tonight, we realized that the matchup between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers deserved a much deeper dive.

Both teams are among the best in their respective conferences, and this should make for a fantastic Friday night affair. You’re not going to want to miss this one, especially after seeing how well Anthony Edwards and the Timberwolves played last night.

With all of that in mind, we have put together our four favorite player props from this game, all of which can be found on Underdog. Let’s dive into the action!

Isaac Okoro OVER 11.5 Points

The Cavs are missing a few of their key contributors tonight, which will likely vault Isaac Okoro into the starting lineup. Okoro has been playing more meaningful minutes lately, averaging 31.5 in the month of March.

Over these four games, he has averaged 12 or more PPG, a hopeful indication of what’s to come against the Timberwolves. The Wolves might be more focused on some of his teammates, leaving Okoro to have a potentially massive game against them.

Darius Garland OVER 9.5 Rebounds & Assists

With Donovan Mitchell sidelined, Darius Garland has taken on a large responsibility. He has turned into a great distributor for this team and has also been a great help on the boards, cleaning up the scrap that his teammates and opponents have left behind.

We’re anticipating Garland to be very active in both facets tonight, which is why we’re taking the over on his RA line of 9.5.

Anthony Edwards OVER 29.5 Points

We hit big on Edwards’ point total yesterday, and we are absolutely running it back again today. Edwards is becoming a massive star for the Timberwolves, and their scoring has to come from somewhere, right?

With Karl Anthony-Towns out for the foreseeable future, Edwards will be called upon to score, and to score often. Don’t overthink his over tonight.

Mike Conley OVER 5.5 Assists

If the Timberwolves make a big run in the playoffs, their signing of Mike Conley could be talked about as a big reason why. Conley is a fantastic player on this Timberwolves team and is utilized in many ways, including assists.

We anticipate Conley to have close to eight assists tonight, which is why we’re smashing the over on his total.
