Minnesota Timberwolves vs Denver Nuggets Game 2: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

Anthony Edwards is rocketing into stardom right in front of our eyes and I am here for it. Ant Man led the Timberwolves with 43 points to a Game 1 upset as Minnesota stole home court advantage in a 106-99 win on Saturday night. And the best part about it is the fact that Edwards won’t be satisfied with that, he is going all out in Game 2 as well. Minnesota won the rebounding battle and most importantly they were able to disrupt Nikola Jokic a bit, holding him to just 11-for-25 shooting and 7 turnovers. Rudy Gobert was spectacular on the defensive end with 13 rebounds and 3 blocks, I’m curious to see how he responds to the adjustments the 2-time MVP makes for Game 2. The Timberwolves are yet to lose a game in the postseason, but tonight they’ll face their biggest test yet.

Jamal Murray is still clearly bothered by his calf injury, he went scoreless in the first half for the first time in his career and finished with a mediocre 17 points on Saturday. Denver could just never get into the flow on offense, finishing with their lowest point total of the postseason so far. Experience should come into play on Monday night though, the defending champs have had their fair share of comebacks in Round 1 and they’ll look to respond here after losing home court in Game 1. Denver is 12-4 SU in the last 16 home games vs Minnesota, Saturday’s loss ended a 7-game home win streak overall. If I’m head coach Michael Malone, I’d look to push the pace a bit here which could disrupt the Timberwolves defense just enough to pull off the win.

Denver Nuggets Point Spread Prediction

Nuggets -5.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Going down 2-0 is not an option for the Nuggets here, with the next two games being played in Minnesota. This team went 33-8 SU at home during the regular season, I have enough faith in them to back them to even things out here and also cover the spread. Back the Nuggets.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Denver Nuggets Game 2 Total Points: Over 205.5

Over 205.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Just 207 points were scored in the series opener, cashing on the under. The oddsmakers have adjusted the projected total to just 205.5 points for Monday’s game, that’s 4 points below what the number was in Game 1. I do expect a slight increase in scoring, especially from the Nuggets perspective. We won’t see Nikola Jokic turn the ball over 7 times in this series again, plus as a team Denver should improve on their 46% from the field from Game 1. As good as Minnesota’s defense has been in this postseason, they did show a few weak points in their series vs Phoenix, allowing 116 and 109 points in the final two games of that series. With a bounce back performance from Jokic and Murray playing a lot better after resting his calf for a couple of extra days, I have faith that the Nuggets will play a lot better here. Minnesota has gone over the total in 7 of 10 games overall, they’re 25-19 on the O/U in road games this season. With 3 of the 4 meetings going over 205.5 points in the regular season, I’m backing that trend to continue here as well. Take the points.
