Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves are behind the Denver Nuggets by three games and it would take a huge run to get out of the NBA play-in tournament zone. This team’s record is now at 43-34 and they one a strong six-game lead over the Los Angeles Clippers. This team has been benefitting from a healthy Karl-Anthony Towns who has missed a chunk of time every season. He is also getting good help with Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell while Malik Beasley helps boost the bench production. Patrick Beverly has been added mid-season and this player has been the motor in the locker room.

Players to watch: Karl-Anthony Towns C 70 GP 70 GS 33.5 MIN 24.4 PTS 2.6 OR 7.2 DR 9.8 REB 3.7 AST 1 STL 1.1 BLK 3.1 TO 3.6 PF 1.2 AST/TO 24.30 PER

Denver Nuggets Betting

The Denver Nuggets are looking to improve their current playoff standing as they are tied with the Utah Jazz with their record at 46-31. Nikola Jokic is once again in the running for league MVP and he may bag it with Joel Embiid struggling lately. The Serbian center has been a triple-double threat every night and Jamaal Murray will be joining them by the off season. Aaron Gordon has Jokic’s back in the paint while Monte Morris has been stepping up his game. This is going to be an important matchup for the Nuggets as they can hit two birds in one stone. The first is that they secure themselves out of the NBA play-in zone while the other is overtaking the Mavs in the standings.

Players to Watch: Nikola Jokic C 70 GP 70 GS 33.2 MIN 26.5 PTS 2.8 OR 10.8 DR 13.6 REB 8 AST 1.4 STL 0.9 BLK 3.8 TO 2.6 PF 2.1 AST/TO 32.89 PER
