The Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets meet Friday in NBA action at the Ball Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Timberwolves vs Nuggets prediction.

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been in fine form as they’ve won six of their last seven games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after blowing past the Pistons in a 106-91 home win on Wednesday. Naz Reid led the team with 21 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, Jaden McDaniels added 20 points while Rudy Gobert tallied 11 points with 14 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 51 percent from the field and 11 of 36 from the 3-point line as they struggled to get going and scored just 17 points in the second quarter, but they came to life and dominated the second half by 59-46 to make it look easy in the end.

Denver Nuggets

Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets have been in great shape as they’ve won nine of their last 11 games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this spot after having their four-game win streak halted by the Suns in a 104-97 loss on Wednesday. Nikola Jokic led the team with 22 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists, Aaron Gordon and Michael Porter Jr each scored 18 points while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope chipped in with 13 points and six assists. As a team, the Nuggets shot 43 percent from the field and 10 of 40 from the 3-point line which was good enough to stay within striking distance in the first half, but the absence of Jamal Murray cost them in the second half where they managed just 45 points to allow the Suns to escape with the narrow win. The Nuggets just didn’t get enough support from their bench, who combined for just 15 points in this one.

Denver Nuggets Team Facts

  • The Nuggets have won each of their last 15 home games against Western Conference opponents after losing as favorites.
  • The Nuggets have covered the spread in each of their last eight night games following a home loss.
  • Each of the Nuggets’ last four games against Northwest Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Minnesota Timberwolves Team Facts

  • The Timberwolves have won each of their last four games as underdogs following a home win.
  • The Timberwolves have covered the spread in seven of their last eight road games against Western Conference opponents.
  • Each of the Timberwolves’ last four games as underdogs have gone OVER the total points line.

Timberwolves vs Nuggets prediction

The Timberwolves could be shorthanded here with Rudy Gobert and Anthony Edwards both questionable, while the Nuggets have ruled out Zeke Nnaji, and they have Jamal Murray listed as questionable. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff as the injury cloud hanging over the Timberwolves’ Gobert and Edwards has a major impact on this game. I am more comfortable going with the Nuggets to get the job done at home at this reasonable line.
