Against The Spread Pick
The MINNESOTA Timberwolves are playing out the string. Karl-Anthony Towns might put up good numbers but the results say he is one of the least impactful good players in the league. Now he is hurt and won’t play til March. Even with him Minnesota have only won/covered once in their last 10 games, a shocking upset of the Clippers. D’Angelo Russell has seen his assists jump up three per game since coming to Minnesota but those numbers are pretty shabby too. There is little to like about this team right now. Denver are in the second spot in the Western Conference but they cannot afford to take the foot off the gas. 2-5 is separated by just 2.5 games and the Nuggets are a team that definitely wants to be playing at home in the playoffs. In their first game after the break they fell to the Thunder so this is a key one in getting back on track. They are healthy and I think they can go on a run. DENVER should be able to cover the spread.
Denver are 5th in points allowed. I wouldn’t have thought they would be that high but the numbers don’t lie. The last time these teams played they went under with ease and the Timberwolves are missing their leading scorer and best player. That spells under to me. The Nuggets have more unders than overs on the season too.Take the UNDER.
