💎 T-WOLVES -4.5 -110 ( 1.5u )


  • It’s real easy to think the Denver Nuggets aren't going to go out like this and just roll over as they're the defending champs and just a few days ago had the second-best odds to win the title behind the Celtics. However, the Timberwolves have given the Nuggets hell on the defensive side and have been head and shoulders the best team throughout these playoffs. If struggles on the Nuggets side wasn't enough, they're now dealing with injuries to Jackson, Murray and KCP. It's not looking good for the Nuggets right now, and I'm not excited to step in front of these Timberwolves regardless. The line is still fairly reasonable. Give me the Timberwolves and the small chalk as they get off to a 3-0 series lead and cash us out!
