Lakers vs. Timberwolves NBA Betting Picks + Odds Shopping

Finding the most profitable NBA betting picks has never been easier. The newly updated OddsShopper is like the Amazon of sports betting. Simply filter, sort the page and find the NBA best bets within seconds.

LeBron James Under 9.5 Assists (-145, Caesars)

When sorting the prop bets by expected win percentage, this is the prop that comes to the very top. OddsShopper gives this prop a 78% chance to go under and a 31% ROI, projecting LeBron James for 7.7 assists. The Lakers are short-handed tonight, with Russell Westbrook, Talen Horton-Tucker, Avery Bradley and Dwight Howard out. It feels like one of those games where LeBron plays more isolation basketball than normal in order for the Lakers to get some offense going, which leads to fewer assists. LeBron has totaled under 9.5 assists in 13 of his 17 games this season.
