Milwaukee Bucks vs Denver Nuggets prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks still struggle defensively, and the Nuggets have been a buzz saw at home dating back to last season. I could see the Nuggets rolling in this spot. With that said, you don't get the Bucks in this big of an underdog role often. In fact, since January 4 of last year, this will be just the sixth time the Bucks are underdogs of 4 or more points. You don't get these chances much. I say take advantage of it. Give me the Bucks and the free points.
