The Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Timberwolves are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Monday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Timberwolves last 5 overall. The Nuggets are 23-5-1 ATS in the last 29 meetings in Minnesota. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have the edge at home with the rest advantage, but it's going to take more than that for me to grab a free bucket. The Timberwolves are a dumb team that has issues finishing games, they've lost 6 straight, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 7.4 points. The Denver Nuggets have found their footing, and there's no answer for Jokic with KAT out. Give me the Nuggets and the small chalk.
