Betting Analysis

The Nuggets are the 5.5-point underdog in this game Even though they have won 2 in a row, which began with a home win over the Timberwolves.

Minnesota has lost 2 in a row and 6 of their last 7 games. Their only win in that span was against a Lakers’ team that has a grand total of 3 wins this season.

Denver has won 4 of their last 5 games and on the season they rank 25th in the league in scoring and 21st in opponents’ points allowed. Their offense has been the key in their recent solid play, as in their 4 wins in their last 5 games they have scored at least 106 points.

Minnesota has a solid scoring team ranking 10th in the league in ppg, but their only rank 24th in opponents’ ppg.

In the OT win over the Timberwolves a couple of games back neither Denver or Minnesota shot the ball well. In that game the Denver bench scored 52 points.

While the Timberwolves are struggling leading scorer Andrew Wiggins has been impressive this season and is averaging over 20 ppg.

Rookie Karl-Anthony Towns is the 2nd leading scorer for Minnesota and leads the team in rebounding. He had a good game in the loss to Denver, but needs to get the rock more, as in the game he shot over 54% from the field.

The Nuggets are streaking and while they may lose tonight they will cover the 5.5-point spread.
