RandBall: Bet the 'over' on Timberwolves' total of 41 victories

This isn't our opinion (OK, we agree with it but it isn't ours): Dave Tuley of ESPN.com advises you to bet the 'over' on the Wolves' season win total of 41 victories. From his Insider report on other teams he would bet on:

Minnesota Timberwolves (over 41 wins)

This is my dark-horse pick to make a deep playoff run, so obviously I must think they'll finish well over .500. The key is that Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio must stay healthy, and other players must pick up their defensive performance besides Nikola Pekovic. However, if Love and Rubio stay healthy, the offense alone should rack up enough wins against the lesser teams in the league to get over this number.

Your thoughts, please, in the comments.
