The Denver Nuggets hit the road and will visit the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center on Sunday night. These teams faced each other twice earlier this season and they're tied 1-1.
The Nuggets get here with a 37-16 record and are 12-12 on the road so far this season ranking 1st in the Northwest Division. The Nuggets are 19-9 in conference games. Denver ranks fifth in the Western Conference with 54.8 points per game in the paint led by Nikola Jokic averaging 15.7.
Nikola Jokic is averaging 25.3 points, 10.8 rebounds and 9.5 assists for the Nuggets. Jamal Murray is averaging 16.6 points over the last 10 games for Denver.
In their last 10 games, the Nuggets are 7-3, averaging 117.8 points, 40.7 rebounds, 29.5 assists, 9.5 steals and 4.4 blocks per game while shooting 50.6% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 111.2 points.
The Timberwolves get here with a 28-27 record and are 19-12 at home so far this season ranking 4th in the Northwest. Minnesota ranks eighth in the Western Conference in team defense, giving up just 115.6 points while holding opponents to 46.6% shooting.
Edwards is averaging 23.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.6 steals for the Timberwolves. D'Angelo Russell is averaging 15.2 points and 5.2 assists over the last 10 games for Minnesota.
In their last 10 games the Twolves are 6-4, averaging 116.2 points, 41.2 rebounds, 24.8 assists, 8.2 steals and 6.1 blocks per game while shooting 48.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 114.2 points per game.
Denver are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games.
Denver are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against Minnesota.
Denver are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Minnesota.
Denver are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
Denver are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games when playing on the road against Minnesota.
Minnesota are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Minnesota's last 6 games.
Minnesota are 12-6 SU in their last 18 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Minnesota's last 5 games against Denver.
The Nuggets have won 3 games in a row but they will be without Jokic and Gordon for this game so the offense will be shorthanded. The Timberwolves have won 4 of heir last 6 games and have been on fire offensively. They're also playing good at home winning 5 of the last 7 games in Minnesota so I expect them to take advantage of Jokic's absence and win this game easy. Take the Timberwolves.
PICK: Timberwolves -7.5 (-110)
