The Minnesota Timberwolves host the Memphis Grizzlies (-1.5) at Target Center for Game 6 of their first-round series Friday, and Minnesota center Karl-Anthony Towns has a handful of player props at various sportsbooks for bettors to consider.
Memphis leads the series 3-2, and the Grizzlies are both a slight road favorite to win Game 6, and they’re listed at -620 to win the first-round matchup over Minnesota at FanDuel Sportsbook.
It’s also worth noting Towns is +21000 to win the NBA Finals MVP at the book.
With the TImberwolves on the ropes, they’ll need another strong showing from Towns. The 26-year-old center has averaged 30.5 points, 13.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 4.0 three-pointers through the past two games.
He posted an average of 24.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 2.0 three-pointers through 74 regular-season games.

The prop totals are consistent across all three sportsbooks, and there isn’t a lot of disparity between the lines, either. FanDuel paying plus-money on Towns’ assist prop is currently the only notable difference.
Additionally, after going 8-for-12 from beyond the arc the past two games, Towns’ three-pointer props have a heavy vig with a 1.5 total. For what it’s worth, he shot 41.0% and attempted 4.9 three-point shots during the regular season.
It almost seems like cherry-picking for the bookmakers to hang the 1.5 three-point prop total and then charge huge juice on the over, doesn’t it?
