Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Denver Nuggets should be favored because they've been the better, more consistent team all season. The Nuggets also have the rest advantage. This line is accurate. With all that said, the Minnesota Timberwolves are at home where they're 23-8 SU on the season, and they're a young team that often gets up for games like this. The Timberwolves are fighting for the top seed in the west, and they're fighting for respect in the NBA, as many don't take them seriously as a contender. The Timberwolves beat the Nuggets back in November. The value is with the points. Give me the Timberwolves at home.
