Coming off a huge win against the Jazz on Tuesday night, the Nuggets are set to play on the second night of a back-to-back against the Minnesota Timberwolves. With the Wolves coming off their big Christmas win, there's a nice chance to take advantage of the NBA Odds on offer for this one.

Denver shot over 48 percent from the field on Tuesday night and ran past the Jazz with ease. However, other than Nikola Jokic, the rest of the Nuggets’ starters played pretty big minutes in the victory

Now they have to travel, and while that hasn’t led to the over much this season for the Nuggets, they are 4-1 cashing the over on the second night of a back-to-back this year, and Denver cashed the over for us in this same spot last week in Denver.

The Wolves have cashed the over in four straight games, and they are 10-3 cashing the over in their last 13 games.

So far this season Minnesota is 19-14 cashing the over and they are 5-1 cashing it against divisional opponents. Even though Denver has not had the same success cashing the over against teams in their division, they are giving up 107 points per game on the road, and the Wolves’ defense is equally as questionable.

The Wolves are allowing about 106 points per game this season and with how good their offense has been playing, they should be able to score 110-plus against a tired Nuggets defense.

Even though both teams slow down their paces in this spot, coming off hanging 107 on the Jazz, I think the Nuggets should be able to stay hot against this spotty Wolves defense. That should be enough for a game where at least one team gets to 110, while the other is hanging around 105.
