Omer Asik total points and rebounds

Omer Asik Mr Double Double
Houston Rockets is visiting Minnesota Timberwolves tonight. Rockets has lost six games in a row, so they will try to end this terrible streak tonight. Home side Timberwolves is dealing with injury problems, so it's going to be tough to prevail against Rockets tonight.

Minnesota Timberwolves has 8 players sidelined. More importantly, the absence of Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic is crucial here. Serbian center Pekovic performed remarkably during Timberwolves' superstar forward Kevin Love's injury. So far, he averaged 16.0 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. Pekovic is sidelined and he's about to miss 7-10 games. Kevin Love started was able to play only 18 games this season where he averaged 18.3 points and 14 rebounds per game. Both players are out for Minnesota Timberwolves. Therefore, they are pretty likely to have problems inside the area.

Our pick is going to be concerned with Rockets center Omer Asik. He's been having a fantastics season so far with his double double figures. So far, he averaged 10.6 points and 11.2 rebounds in 41 games. Such figures make his nickname to be revisited as well. He used to be called "Asik and destroy" by Bulls fans before, now he is called "Mr  double double". Tonight, he's likely to find much weaker opposition from Minnesota Timberwolves. The bookies set his point and rebound totals as 12 for this game;however, I particularly liked the third option;the combination of both. He probably collects a lot of boards tonight given the absence of Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Love, but the offensive mentality of Houston and head coach McHale's rotation is quite unpredictable. Therefore, the bet regarding his total points seems relatively unsafer.

Considering 6 game losing streak, Houston Rockets should look to dominate Timberwolves by accelerating the tempo. All fast breaks start with good rebounding, so I'm hoping that Kevin Mchale is going to keep him inside the court as much as possible. He might find lots of tip in opportunities thanks to the weakened Minnesota frontcourt. Finally, he significantly improved his free throw skills, so he can create scoring from the line as well. I expect him to grab around 15 boards while scoring in double figures tonight. The revealed spread is quite reasonable to try.
