Bucks vs. Nuggets NBA Pick | Preview (Mar. 20)

NBA Betting – Saturday Night Picks

Before nba betting fans turn their attention to more sports betting events this weekend, we have the NBA. It’s time for our weekly Friday Night hoops picks for NBA gambling action.


Bucks vs. Nuggets

Time: Saturday 9 ET
Venue: Pepsi Center, Denver
Spread: Nuggets -10
Over/Under: 205

Team records:
Milwaukee: 37-30 SU, 43-23-1 ATS
Denver: 47-22 SU, 31-33-5 ATS

Maybe it’s time for the NBA to start paying a little attention to the Bucks, who are on course to make the first round of the playoffs a living hell for either the Celtics or the Hawks.

Since the All-Star break Milwaukee has morphed into a legitimate playoff team, something that we simply have not come to expect from a state that lives Packer football even during basketball season. The Bucks head into tonight’s game in Denver at 37-30, with 7 wins their last 8 and 13 victories in the last 15. They have caught everyone by surprise – so much so that they are by far the best cover team in the league, at a ridiculous 43-23 against the spread.

The early-season in jury that shelved Michael Redd forced the Bucks into recovery mode, and without Redd getting his 15-20 shots a game, the ball was shared more than it has in the past. Rookie Brandon Jennings has played every game and is a star in the making. John Salmons, a trading deadline acquisition from Chicago, has made the Bucks a top-tier offensive team, and the development of center Andrew Bogut has been the cherry on the sundae.

In all, six players are averaging double figures, and Jerry Stackhouse is giving the team decent minutes off the bench.

If there was any doubt about Milwaukee’s arrival on the NBA scene, it was dispelled in a one-week burst when the Bucks beat – in order – Cleveland, Boston and Utah in consecutive home games in a span of 6 days. It’s doubtful even the Lakers could have accomplished that feat.Online Sports Betting at Sportsbook

The rest of the regular season provides a mix of tough games (Boston twice, Cleveland, Phoenix and tonight at Denver) and weak sisters, and assuming to injuries to rotation players, the Bucks could make life hard for someone in the playoffs.

Betting Trends:

Milwaukee is 8-2 SU in its last 10 games on the road
Denver is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games at home
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Denver’s last 5 games when playing Milwaukee
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Milwaukee’s last 5 games when playing Denver
Milwaukee is 7-1 SU in its last 8 games
The total has gone OVER in 10 of Milwaukee’s last 12 games when playing on the road against Denver
Denver is 8-1 SU in its last 9 games
Denver is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games when playing at home against Milwaukee

Bucks vs. Nuggets Free Pick: Are the Nuggets starting to pace themselves for the playoffs? After a huge scoring spurt (six straight games over 100 points), they’ve cooled in the last two at home – both victories, but they didn’t cover against either Washington or New Orleans. Ten is a large number against a motivated team playing well, but the Bucks were forced into overtime last night at Sacramento and haven’t had to play back-to-back games on the road since last month. The pick here is the over, as the Bucks may not have the legs to dig in defensively two nights in a row away from home.
