Milwaukee Bucks vs Denver Nuggets 3/9/2020 Betting Odds
Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks are on a two-game losing streak and lost four of their last three games. This has been the most vulnerable time for the Bucks all season long and the chances of them reaching 70 wins are already very much impossible at this point. The Bucks played without Giannis Antetokuonmpo in their last match and they were punished for taking that risk as the Phoenix Suns rolled them over by 9 points in a high scoring affair. Kris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe tried to carry the team on their shoulders scoring a combined 67 points but it was not enough as no one filled in the shoes on the gap that Antetokuonmpo left. They will be playing with “The Greek Freak” against the Nuggets and he will be critical for this team to hold on to the top record in the NBA.
Players to watch: G. Antetokounmpo PF 57 GP 57 GS 30.9 MIN 29.6 PTS 2.3 OR 11.5 DR 13.7 REB 5.8 AST 1 STL 1 BLK 3.7 TO 3 PF 1.6 AST/TO 31.69 PER
K. Middleton SF 54 GP 51 GS 30 MIN 20.7 PTS 0.7 OR 5.5 DR 6.3 REB 4.1 AST 0.9 STL 0.1 BLK 2 TO 2.2 PF 2 AST/TO 21.39 PER

Denver Nuggets Betting
Like the Bucks, the Nuggets have been slipping for the past few games and it cost them already their seat at the second-best record in the NBA Western Conference. Over the past ten games, they split their wins and losses to 5-5 and in their last five, they lost thrice. They are coming off from a tough loss on the road against the Cleveland Cavaliers and it showed how much this team relies on Nikola Jokic as he only finished with 8 points in a 4-of-11 shooting. They have Paul Millsap back in the fold which was the silver lining but this is a time when NBA teams step it up on the floor and bring some playoff-type of basketball as the NBA regular season goes on a home stretch.
Players to Watch: N. Jokic C 63 GP 63 GS 32.3 MIN 20.5 PTS 2.4 OR 7.7 DR 10.2 REB 6.8 AST 1.2 STL 0.7 BLK 3.1 TO 3.1 PF 2.2 AST/TO 25.48 PER
