With the short slate you need to get creative to make some money tonight. With the Nuggets’ poor showing last night, they should come out stronger after their starters got benched against the Nets. With smaller NBA Odds for the total of the Wolves and Raptors, it’s teaser time on Thursday!

 Two-Team Teaser

Last night the Denver Nuggets had almost all of their starters benched early in the game after getting down double figures to the Brooklyn Nets of all teams. However, the bench brought them back and played really well as Nikola Jokic returned to action.

Now tonight they are in Washington, DC for a matchup with the Wizards. Outside of John Wall, the Wizards are hot trash. Bradley Beal is overpaid and overrated and outside of their five starters, the rest of their team is probably the worst bench in the NBA.

So, with the Nuggets’ starters likely motivated to come out stronger after their benching, I see Denver covering their teaser odds here. With NBA Odds of +5 ½, the Nuggets at +10 ½ are a bargain against Washington. Even on no rest, Denver is a better team,

For the other leg tonight, I’m going with the total for the first game of the evening. Both Toronto and Minnesota have been strong on offense this season, but the Wolves’ defense has been suspect. Minnesota is allowing 112.2 points in their last five games and over 108 per game on the road.

The Raptors, on the other hand, have been one of the league’s top offenses and while their defense is strong, the Wolves have enough talent to find 100 to 105 points in this game, even on the road. Teasing down the NBA Odds of 214 to 209 is a great over play for our teaser.
