Odds as of April 5th
Jaden McDaniels Breaking Out for Minnesota
D’Angelo Russell said Jaden McDaniels is going to be a “thing” a couple months ago – and he was right.
The rookie has finally cracked the starting lineup and in the Timberwolves last six games, McDaniels has played at least 33 minutes in all of them except one. Not only is he playing, but he is playing well.
Jaden McDaniels’ defense is (rightfully) getting most of the shine, but he showed another aspect to his game w/ a career high 4 assists. Excellent awareness, accuracy and body control to make these passes while on the move to open shooters. pic.twitter.com/Z13HyVcanE

McDaniels’ points prop has been rising, but at 11.5 it’s still a little low. He’s gone over this number in each of his last six games with the lone exception being a game against the Memphis Grizzlies where he got into foul trouble. The Timberwolves’ opponent tonight, the Sacramento Kings, only draw about 19 fouls per game so there is reason to believe he can avoid foul issues tonight.
Another reason to like the matchup is because the Kings have the worst defensive rating in basketball this season. So far, McDaniels has scored 56.3% of his points via the three. There isn’t a worse team in the NBA in opponent three-point percentage than Sacramento. McDaniels has hit at least two threes in each of his last six so he is a good bet to do it again tonight.
If McDaniels’ three-ball is off, he can still get home for bettors since 35.8% of his points are scored in the paint. No team in the NBA give up more field goals made per game from less than five feet from the basket than the Kings. McDaniels could easily have this wrapped up by halftime.
- The Pick: Jaden McDaniels OVER 11.5 Points (-106)
