The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, but they're playing good ball, shooting 49.8 percent from the field in their last five games and they win on the road by an average of 3.9 points. The Milwaukee Bucks are showing signs of returning to a powerhouse, and they're winning by an average of 12.4 points during their five-game winning streak. The Bucks should be favored, but this is a lot of points to pass up with a solid Nuggets team that seems to enjoy playing on the road. Give me the points.
