The Denver Nuggets hit the road to battle the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center tonight.
The Bucks have lost eight of their last 10 and their last three straight after falling to the Hornets by 87-82 yesterday afternoon. Khris Middleton led the team with 19 points and six assists while Greg Monroe had 17 points and 10 rebounds, but the Bucks just couldn't make the most of a hot start to the game, having to come back from behind after scoring just nine points in a horrendous 23-9 second quarter. Defensively, the Bucks did a good job to hold the Hornets to 38.6 percent shooting, but the Hornets just scorched them for 15 3-pointers, including a clutch three from Nicolas Batum with the game tied and 0:45 left in the game. All in all, it was a pretty disappointing performance for Milwaukee who drop to 6-11 on the season and 2-7 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets have lost six straight after falling to the Mavericks by 92-81 on Saturday. Darrell Arthur led the team with 16 points on eight of 13 shoting while Emmanuel Mudiay and Danilo Gallinari added 12 points each as the Nuggets fought hard to lead for most of the first half until they fell to pieces in a horrific 25-5 third quarter dominated by the Mavericks. That has kind of been the story for the Nuggets lately as they've shown they can rattle the best teams, but they just can't put together a 48-minute performance. With yet another loss, Denver falls to 6-11 on the season and 3-5 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Nuggets are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games but 0-5 ATS in their last five games overall, while the Bucks are 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing on zero days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall.
Head to head, the Nuggets are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Milwaukee.
You really couldn't put your hard earned money on either of these struggling teams and feel too confident about getting any of it back, but I think the Bucks will be good enough to win this one by single digits after what I saw from them last night in a game they could've easily won.
