Nuggets are a Red-Hot Spread Wager Right Now

The Denver Nuggets are quietly becoming a very consistent wager after winning five of their last six in light of a 117-109 victory over San Antonio on Tuesday. Denver’s offense has been fantastic in that span, with the team topping at least 115 points in each of those five wins. The Nuggets will look to keep the momentum going in their last contest before the all-star break on the road vs the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday.

Xbet opened the Nuggets as 3-point road underdogs with a total of 212.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Nuggets’ last six games against teams with winning records.
  • The Bucks are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games at home.
  • The Nuggets are 12-2 SU and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games against the Bucks.

Nikola Jokic has been a difference-maker since he arrived in the Mile High City, and the big Serbian is averaging 20.2 points, 11.2 rebounds and 8.3 assists in six February games. Jokic has also made 10 of 20 three-pointers in that span. The Nuggets averaged 115.5 points while sweeping their two matchups with the Bucks a year ago.

Milwaukee is only two games out of third place in the Eastern Conference after a 97-92 triumph over Atlanta on Tuesday. As always, Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the charge for the young Bucks. The Greek Freak had 15 rebounds vs the Hawks and is averaging 14.3 boards over his last four home games. Five Bucks players scored in double figures against the Hawks, as Khris Middleton paced the team with 21 points.

The Nuggets are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games, but they’ve been struggling on the road against good teams. In the Nuggets’ last five road games vs clubs with winning records, they’re 1-4 SU and ATS.
