Minnesota Timberwolves vs Denver Nuggets Predictions 1/18/2023


The analysis does not include Tuesday’s games, in which the hot Denver Nuggets visited the Trail Blazers in an attempt to win seven straight games.


As 11-point home favorites last Sunday, the Nuggets narrowly defeated the Orlando Magic 119-116, and Nikola Jokic hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.0 seconds remaining.


Jokic had 17 points, 14 assists, and ten rebounds in the end. Jamal Murray made 18 points and seven dimes, while Aaron Gordon had 25 points, eight rebounds, and 5 assists.


The Nuggets recorded a 32/16 assist-to-turnover ratio while making 53.9% of their field goals (13-for-39 from beyond the arc).


On Tuesday, the Nuggets and Memphis Grizzlies shared first place in the Western Conference. They had the 18th-best defensive rating and the second-highest offensive rating in the NBA (118.3 points per 100 possessions) (114.3).


The Nuggets were atop the NBA in both assists per 100 possessions and 3-point shooting (39.9%). 


  • The Denver Nuggets are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Denver’s previous 5 contests. 
  • The Nuggets are 7-0 SU in their last 7 matches.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Denver Nuggets. The NBA pick for this game is the Denver Nuggets. If Rudy Gobert doesn’t suit up, keep an eye on the injury report and take the Nuggets to cover.


Even though Denver plays on the second night of a back-to-back, if Gobert sits out, the Nuggets will dominate the Timberwolves in the paint.


When playing the Nuggets, the Timberwolves’ inability to defend the 3-point line is a major problem. The Nuggets are motivated to end their losing streak because Denver is 0-4 SU and ATS in their previous four games with Minnesota.


In the Timberwolves’ 124-111 victory over the Nuggets two weeks ago as 4-point home underdogs, Gobert provided strong defense for Nikola Jokic, who shot 10-for-20 from the field.


In his last 9 games, Jokic averaged 22.8 points on 62.5% field goal shooting. The Denver Nuggets will win to a predicted score of 118-107.
