Timberwolves-Nuggets Game 7 Odds

Minnesota Timberwolves Preview

After beating the Nuggets soundly in Denver in the first two games of the series, the T-wolves seemed to run out of gas. They lost the next three games by a combined 50 points, two of which came at home. While many expected the Nuggets to deliver the final blow in Game six on Thursday, the Wolves stunned the NBA world by beating them by over 40 points.

While Minnesota has a deep and talented roster, their playoff hopes live and die with Anthony Edwards. The 22-year-old is quickly becoming one of the best players in the league after being selected first overall in the 2020 draft. As good as he was during the season, Edwards has been even better in the postseason. He’s averaging 30.2 points, making 53.5% of his shots from the field and 42.5% from three.

The Wolves biggest advantage as a team is their defense. They were the best in the NBA during the season, and they have continued to shine in the postseason. They have held the Nuggets to under 100 points in each of their wins, showing just how much, they rely on their ability to limit points.

If Ant Edwards can stay hot and the team can dig deep for another impressive showing, the Wolves could become the favorite to win this season’s NBA Championship.

Denver Nuggets Preview

The reigning NBA Champions were caught off-guard by Minnesota in the first two games of this series, but they woke up in Game 3. Many expected this great team to maintain that level of play, but they put up a dud in Game 6. It was the second game in the series they lost by over 25 points, showing they are vulnerable against a great Wolves defense.

While we know Nikola Jokic is going to put up a monster game, but we have questions about Jamal Murray. He averaged just over 21 points during the regular season, but his scoring has been inconsistent during this season. Minnesota managed to contain him well in their three wins, including in Game 6 when he finished with 10 points and a 22.2% field goal percentage.

As good as Jokic is, this team needs Murray to be scoring if they want to win Game 7. Michael Porter Jr. and Aaron Gordon can put up impressive offensive numbers but can’t be counted on to do so on a consistent basis. Given the level of the Wolves defense, the Nuggets will need their shooters to show up big to get the win on Sunday.
