Milwaukee Bucks vs Denver Nuggets Betting Pick
This game will take place at 9:30 PM ET on NBATV
Why bet the Nuggets:
✅ The Bucks struggle big time in the paint, ranking 28th in the NBA to opposing centers. Nikola Jokic is the best center in basketball and he’s going to take advantage of a team that doesn’t see him very often. He just put up 50 points and is playing better than he ever has before.
✅ These are two very similar teams statistically, with both playing extremely fast and efficient. With that said, the Nuggets are the team I trust more down the wire. The Bucks rank 27th in FT% at just 72.7%, compared to 77% for the Denver Nuggets. Everyone on the court for Denver can hit from the line, which is comfortable to know.
✅ The Nuggets are starting to play a lot more like the team we’ve become accustomed to. With Jokic in the middle, Milwaukee will be focused on not allowing him to kill them alone, which he won’t. Jokic is more than willing to spread it around and let his team do the scoring.
✅ Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
✅ Bucks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Monday games.
The Pick: Nuggets +4.5
