The Nuggets are in fourth place in the West and have clinched a playoff spot. They are coming off a 117-112 win Tuesday over the Charlotte Hornets. They had lost two in a row before that.

Nuggets at Timberwolves: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Nuggets 125, Timberwolves 120

Money line (ML)

The Nuggets have 20 road wins this season while Minnesota is 12-21 at home. They are only one game behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the three seed in the West so they have something to play for.

Minnesota has won two games in a row and six of its last nine contests. They are no longer in last place in the West. The Timberwolves have not beaten the Nuggets this season in two attempts.

Against the spread (ATS)

The Nuggets have failed to cover the spread in their last three games and have only covered the spread four times in their last 13 games. They are 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.

The Timberwolves are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games and 16-17 ATS at home this season.

While I like the Nuggets to win outright, I give a SLIGHT “LEAN” to the TIMBERWOLVES +4.5 (-110) to cover.

Over/Under (O/U)

The Nuggets are 38-31 O/U this season and the Timberwolves are 36-33 O/U. The Nuggets’ last three games have all gone Over.

Four of Minnesota’s last six games have also gone Over. Both games this season between these two teams went Over, combining for 233 and 239 points in those games.

Take OVER 233.5 (-110).
