The Milwaukee Bucks will bring their four-game winning streak into Monday night’s road matchup with the Denver Nuggets. Milwaukee improved the record to 15-8, which is second in the Eastern Conference. Denver will come in with a 12-10 record, tied for sixth in the Western Conference. After beating the Utah Jazz, which have the best record in the NBA, the Nuggets have lost two straight.

Pick ATS: Nuggets +4

The Bucks have been playing well, but they haven’t been one of the best teams in the sport on the road. Milwaukee is in the third of a long, six-game road trip, and the Bucks are 6-6 away from home so far this season. Be sure to check the injury reports as it gets closer to game time because second-leading scorer Jamal Murray is questionable with a knee injury, which might cause for a swing in the point spread.

Player Prop: Khris Middleton O2.5 3-pointers (+112)

Denver has had some serious defensive lapses lately and they’ve been worst on the wings. The Nuggets gave up 14 threes to the Sacrament Kings in their last game because of defensive lapses from Will Barton and Michael Porter Jr., and Harrison Barnes made five shots from deep in that matchup. Middleton has made four threes in three of his last five games and knocking them down at a 46.5% clip this year. This one seems like a no-brainer.
