The Nuggets are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games. The Bucks are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 Friday games and 12-5-2 ATS in their last 19 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 home games. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, but they're playing their best basketball of the season and have done some fairly good work on the road as of late. The Milwaukee Bucks continue to pile up the victories, but with these wins come bloated lines and it's hard to lay these numbers game after game. The Milwaukee Bucks are just 10-14 ATS this season as a double-digit favorite. The Denver Nuggets are playing too well right now to turn down this sort of number. Give me the points.
