The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Timberwolves are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 8-2 in Nuggets last 10 overall. The over is 20-7 in Timberwolves last 27 overall. The Nuggets are 23-4-1 ATS in the last 28 meetings in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Timberwolves need to take advantage of games like this at home if they're going to be a serious playoff contender, but they are banged up and this line is disrespectful toward the Nuggets. While the Denver Nuggets have been hit or miss all year and aren't great on the road, they are winning their last five games by an average of 12.8 points while shooting 50.5 percent from the field. The Nuggets are playing their best and more consistent ball of the season. I've been high on the Timberwolves all year, but there's great value with the Nuggets and the free bucket.
