Minnesota at Denver

Sunday 11/16 08:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total OVER 201.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

Minnesota has dropped seven in a row to start the 2008 campaign. It doesn't get any easier tonight against Denver at the Pepsi Center. Minnesota isn't as horrible as their record suggests however as five of the seven losses have been close with two coming in overtime. If there's a weakness on this team it's certainly on the defensive end. The T-Wolves are giving up 103.4 per game (104.7 on the road). Over their last five games Minnesota has give up 109.6 per game while scoring 104! Denver, averaging 101.7 per game at home, will certainly score early and often in this one. And, while Denver's defense has improved since the Iverson-Billups trade, it's still far from great. The Nuggets are giving up 100 per game at home. In the favorite role, the Nugges are 77-51 OVER under George Karl as in these types of games, they like feel comfortable reverting to their run-and-gun. I see this one sailing OVER the total.
