NBA Betting Trends

Denver

The Nuggets are 23-10-1 ATS in their last 34 games versus the Northwest Division. Denver is 1-3-1 ATS in its last five games overall.

Minnesota

The T-Wolves are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Minnesota is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four home games.

Prediction: 

Denver might be the better team here, but I like home teams a lot in afternoon and weird start time spots. When its a home dog that has been playing fairly well in the early going, my interest peaks even more. The Nuggets could also be in a letdown situation after such a massive comeback a couple nights ago. Looks for Towns to guide the way to a strong performance here by the hosts.
