The Denver Nuggets host the Minnesota Timberwolves at Ball Arena for Game 5, which tips off tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET on TNT. Here are our best Timberwolves vs. Nuggets player props based on the best NBA odds.

After two losses to open this second-round series, the Denver Nuggets (57-25) looked like they might be on the verge of collapse. Those who wrote them off probably feel embarrassed right about now.

The Nuggets showed their championship resolve to win two games in Minnesota. They return home to Ball Arena as 4.5-point favorites across our best sportsbooks to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves (56-26) in Game 5, which tips off at 10:30 p.m. ET on TNT.

With those two wins at Target Center, the Nuggets have reclaimed their position as one of the favorites by the NBA championship odds. The Timberwolves, however, have proven to be formidable opponents on the road, and they'll be looking to continue their success away from home to upset the Nuggets once again.

To accompany our Pacers vs. Knicks player props, here are our best Timberwolves vs. Nuggets player props and NBA picks (odds via our best NBA betting sites; Pick confidence is based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Timberwolves vs. Nuggets prop bet predictions for Tuesday

Karl-Anthony Towns Over 18.5 points ⭐⭐⭐

There's really no other way to put it: Towns absolutely stunk in the two home losses to the Nuggets. Mind you, he was somehow plus-four in Game 4 despite scoring only 13 points on a horrific 5-of-18 shooting clip. That followed a Game 3 performance in which he was minus-32 and scored only 14 points.

However, we're betting on Towns to bounce back in Game 5.

The big man scored 20 points in Game 1 of this series and 27 in Game 2, combining to shoot 18-for-28 and 5-for-9 from three. He also scored 28 points in the Timberwolves' series-clinching win against the Suns in Phoenix. He's been much better on the road lately, regardless of where Towns is playing.

We're getting solid value on these odds, too, as the next-best price across any of our best sports betting sites is -112, with many already hovering around -120 to back the Over.

Best odds: -106 via FanDuel

Anthony Edwards Over 5.5 assists  ⭐⭐⭐

Edwards managed seven assists during Minnesota's best performance of this series, a 106-80 win during Game 2. He was serving as much more of a facilitator than throughout the regular season when the guard averaged just 5.1 dimes per game.

We're betting that Edwards - the ultimate competitor - will once again try to get his teammates more involved early. It's obvious that the Game 4 strategy didn't work. That's when Edwards scored 44 points in the loss.

These +110 odds at DraftKings are providing us with solid value, too, as our other best sports betting apps are hovering around +105. Meanwhile, FanDuel is already as short as -108.

With the series shifting back to Denver, "Ant-Man" and Co. will need to be firing on all cylinders. It's become quite clear the Nuggets are perfectly content with letting Minnesota's star score 40-plus points if it means his teammates resemble a YMCA rec-league squad.

Aaron Gordon Under 24.5 points + rebounds + assists ⭐⭐⭐

Thank you to Gordon for exploding in Game 4, because that's caused this total to be set far too high for Tuesday's affair.

Game 4 marked the first time this series that Gordon went Over this points + rebounds + assists total, and it was the result of an incredible 11-for-12 shooting performance and six assists (far more than his 3.5 season average).

One of the more important aspects of any player prop betting - but particularly in the playoffs - is finding edges on lines and prices that are either too high or low due to the previous game(s).

That's what we're seeing here, as FanDuel is alone among our best sportsbooks with Gordon's PRA total set at a more appropriate 23.5.

For those others that are at 24.5, the Under is juiced far more heavily, with BetMGM as short as -133. Take advantage of the inflated total and these solid odds at bet365.
