NBA odds 2022-23: Northwest Division
The Denver Nuggets are still the favorite to run this division behind two-time MVP Nikola Jokic. If you believe in Gobert’s impact and fit, the Timberwolves offer nice value at +200. The Portland Trail Blazers could make a playoff push, but they’re easily behind the Nuggets and T-Wolves in this group. The Jazz could be in for a full rebuild, while the Oklahoma City Thunder are in no hurry to start winning.
Trail Blazers: +600
