This game is a classic exhibit of why some want to change the NBA Playoff format. These teams have the same record but are in vastly different situations of what they have to do over the last couple of weeks to get in to stay in.
Denver is home after a long road trip so perhaps they can make that push.
The Bucks are currently in the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. However, they have a 5 game lead with just 7 to play so it seems pretty secure at this point.
Despite that comfortable position this has not been the season the Bucks were anticipating. They switched coaches and even though Giannis has had a great season this team did no move up the Eastern Conference standings.
Giannis is averaging 28 and 10 but until he is able to hit outside shots with consistency he is kind of easy to game plan against. I didn’t say stop, I said game plan.
In fact the whole team has kind of fallen into that category. Milwaukee has lots of long athletic players but few who shoot it well enough to create space on the floor. Its a make or miss league and they miss too much.
This is a tough spot hitting the road and at altitude. They were pushed to overtime in their win over the Lakers on Friday.
Denver sits two games back in the West with just six to play. It is far from ideal but not impossible given that they have most of their final games at home. They are coming off a very hard fought and important road win over Oklahoma City in their last contest.
The Nuggets could be without a couple of key contributors in this one – Gary Harris and Wilson Chandler. Harris is enjoying his best season in the NBA this year and gives them great scoring while Chandler did not seem to fit with the youth movement of the club. He was a depth guy though.
Nikola Jokic is one of the best players in the league that nobody talks about. He leads the team in scoring, rebounding and assists. He can control the game from the post and has developed as an outside shooter too. Best of all Milwaukee does not have a great cover for him because of his versatility.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Bucks have to be the favourite in this one. They are good at home and Milwaukee is under .500 on the road.
The question becomes the number but as long as it isn’t too high, like say -7, you have to back the well motivated home team.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
The home team is definitely the better play. I am not betting a lot of NBA over the final weeks but this is one you can definitely hit.
