Denver Nuggets Betting

The Nuggets are coming off from a home loss against the Indiana Pacers. They lost by six points and their best player in that game was Nikola Jokic with 30 points, ten rebounds and four assists. Jerami Grant and Will Barton each had 16 points to help in the scoring department. Michael Porter and Mason Plumlee combine for 26 points to lead the bench production. Monte Morris had a tough night as he shot 1-of-7 from the field. The T-Wolves are struggling but they must not bring this type of game in Minnesota on how they slept on the defensive end.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The T-Wolves are on a five-game losing streak but the upside of their last loss is that they got Karl-Anthony Towns back and he was trying to shake off some rust finishing with 12 points, six rebounds and six assists in 27 minutes. Jarrett Culver led the team with 26 points while Ryan Covington had 22 points and eight rebounds. Andrew Wiggins finished with a triple-double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Gorgui Dieng came off the bench with 12 points and seven rebounds. With the Nuggets struggling for consistency lately, they could pull off a win depending what Denver team will come to town. Having Towns in the team will help them have a body to guard Nikola Jokic.

Players to Watch: K. Towns C 24 GP 24 GS 33.6 MIN 26.5 PTS 2.8 OR 8.7 DR 11.4 REB 4.3 AST 1 STL 1.2 BLK 3.1 TO 3.5 PF 1.4 AST/TO 27.98 PER
