Joes Pick To Cover The Spread

I’ll take a pop on a Minnesota T-Wolves team at +8 that has won seven of their last ten games. They crushed the Nuggets in their last game, and I do expect Denver to come out more motivated, but Minny is just hot enough that revenge motivation may not be enough to get the cover. I’m betting the Timberwolves at +8!
