Free NBA Picks - Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Minnesota Timberwolves players in court

With the Nuggets coming off a game last night and being a little banged up, the Wolves are in an excellent position to cash their first half NBA Odds tonight against Denver.

Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Not only are the Nuggets coming off a game last night, but they are also a little banged up right now. Danillo Gallinari is probable but still a little sore, but Emmanuel Mudiay has already been ruled out and Gary Harris might miss another game too.

That is a problem against a rested Wolves team that has been stellar in the first halves of games so far this season. The Wolves are holding their opponents to just 47.9 points per first half and with the Nuggets coming off no rest, I love the Wolves and their first half NBA Odds of -2.

Ricky Rubio will not play in this one and while that may seem like an important injury, the Wolves' offensive rating goes up slightly with Rubio off the court. Their defense also improves a little as well, so while his absence may seem like a big deal, it's not going to affect our play on the first half of this one.
