The Minnesota Timberwolves should be up for this game at home, and they have the talent to spring an upset. The Minnesota Timberwolves should also get the boost with the return of Jaden McDaniels. However, the Denver Nuggets have been so dominant and so consistent through 4 games that they're not a side I'm willing to jump in front of. Until the Nuggets come back to earth, I'm not betting against them. It's really that simple. We're only laying a bucket. Give me the Nuggets on the road.
