Denver Nuggets vs Milwaukee Bucks: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Two of the preseason favorites to win the NBA title meet up in Milwaukee tonight as the Nuggets try to sweep the regular season series from the Bucks. Tonight’s game ends a mini 3-game road trip for the reigning champs, they just lost at Sacramento 135-106, it’s worth pointing out that they were playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back which is the sole reason why they lost by 29 points. This is a solid bounce back opportunity, Denver has enjoyed a lot of success in recent meetings winning 12 of the last 18 and also covering the spread in 6 of their last 7 visits to Fiserv Forum. After missing the game against the Kings, Michael Porter Jr. is expected back in the line-up following a minor issue with his knee.

Wins have been rare to come by for the Bucks ever since they hired new head coach Doc Rivers. After a 3-game losing streak, they were finally able to beat the Charlotte Hornets 120-84 on Friday, finally displaying a solid performance on the defensive end. Obviously, using the Hornets as a measuring stick would be a mistake, but signs of improvement are definitely there compared to earlier in the season when the Bucks were giving up 120+ points against similar teams. This team still has a long way to go in terms of settling to life under their new head coach. Khris Middleton has been ruled out after his ankle injury against the Suns once again, while Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo are both game time decisions. The Bucks are just 2-5 SU in their last 7 games and have covered only 5 times in 20 games overall.

Milwaukee Bucks Point Spread Prediction

Milwaukee Bucks +1.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Both teams will be well rested here, I think this game means a lot more to the Bucks than the Nuggets. A win against the defending champions would erase all the bad stuff that’s happened since they switched coaches, so I think they’ll be highly motivated to get a dub here. I’ll go with the home team to cover as slight underdogs.

Nuggets vs Bucks Total Points Prediction: Under 232.5

Under 232.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Just as suspected, ever since Adrian Griffin was let go, Milwaukee Bucks games have proceeded to go under the total more often than not. That bet has cashed 6 times in their last 7 games, during this stretch they’ve ranked 10th in defensive rating which is the highest they’ve been all season long. When it comes to pace of play, Denver is one of the slowest teams in the NBA, ranking 29th with an average of 97.3 possessions per game. Their last 9 of 11 games have also cashed on the under, including 4 of their last 5 away from Ball Arena. They’ve held opponents to just 106, 103, 108 and 105 points in 4 of their last 5 games, so the Bucks will have a hard time scoring the basketball here. Even the first meeting between the two teams saw just 220 points scored, 12 points less than what tonight’s projected total is. With the under cashing in 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams, I think backing that bet is the best course of action we can take here.
