Denver is very quietly finding ways to win games at the moment, and the fact that the club has only played 11 games at home is quite scary for the rest of the Western Conference. It is so difficult to come to Pepsi Arena, it isn’t even funny, and the Timberwolves are about to find that one out. Minnesota just doesn’t have the guard play to keep up with what Denver is going to bring to the table, and one the team gets out and starts to run, it’s very difficult to keep up. It is going to take a yeoman’s effort tonight out of F Kevin Love to have any chance to win this game, and he is going to get a very tough draw on the defensive end of the court with C JaVale McGee bodying up with him. If Love is kept in check, like we think it is very possible that he might be, there is no reason to think that the Nuggs won’t easily make it 11-1 this year at home, and 21-13 ATS on the season. This is clearly the superior of the two teams, and it will show in the form of a double digit win for the hosts on Thursday night.
