Bet Nuggets Against Tormented Bucks

The Denver Nuggets are not the best road team in the NBA if we look at their 10-17-1 against the spread (ATS) record. But the Milwaukee Bucks are still not all right. A 36-point win over the bottom-feeding Charlotte Hornets is not changing our minds. Thus, given Denver’s slight spread, we are backing the visitor in all our NBA picks and spreads.

Here’s a look at some NBA games odds to consider!

Take A Look At These Other 2 NBA Special Articles

Nuggets vs Bucks ATS Pick: Nuggets -1

Denver is just average on the road with a 15-13 record and a -1.6 net rating. Typically, we’d fade Denver in this spot. But a 1-point NBA spread versus the sad Bucks is something we can get behind. The Nuggets have been in better form than Milwaukee, which is still adjusting amidst all the turmoil.

 

The Bucks are just 2-5 under Doc Rivers and one of these wins came against the 11-41 Hornets. Milwaukee has been fixing its defense but came unglued as Minnesota embarrassed it with a 24-point blowout. Its offense has also struggled with a 114.1 rating, which is 22nd overall.

With a deteriorated offense and a work-in-progress defense, we can’t back Milwaukee. Denver is healthy and has more continuity. As such, it is the obvious NBA expert pick.

Nuggets vs Bucks Over/Under Pick: Under 233

Six of Milwaukee’s last seven games have gone under the total due to having a poor offensive showing or a decent defensive performance. Only Utah and Minnesota have hit the 120-point mark against the Bucks in their last 11 games.

And on the flip side, Milwaukee has hit that mark just twice in its last seven games. Denver also only averages over 110 points on the road, hence why 63% of their games have gone under their totals (10-17-1) on our NBA odds.

Nuggets vs Bucks Player Prop Pick: Jamal Murray Over 23.5 Points (-104)

Jamal Murray plays a bit better when he’s on the road for Denver this season. On top of that, Murray has scored 24+ in five of his last eight games versus Milwaukee. He’s worth betting online to go over his scoring prop.
