Denver Nuggets vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction: Injury Report, Starting 5s, Betting Odds & Spreads: January 25| 2022-23 NBA Season

Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets
Milwaukee to host Denver on Wednesday

The Denver Nuggets (34-14) are first in the Western Conference and are coming off a one-point win against the New Orleans Pelicans (99-98) in their previous outing.

Nikola Jokic missed the earlier game when the Nuggets lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder and returned for this one to register another triple-double of his career with 25 points along with 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

Jamal Murray contributed 25 points as well to seal his side a narrow win. It was scary for the Nuggets as the Pelicans made a second-half comeback and came too close to snatching a victory. The Nuggets are 9-1 in their last 10 and will now take on the Milwaukee Bucks (30-17) who defeated the Detroit Pistons (150-130) in a high-scoring entertainer in their last outing.

It was a return for Giannis Antetokounmpo after missing a few games due to injury. He stepped on the court and registered 20 points in the first quarter as the Bucks went on to score 49. He only played 27 minutes and scored 29 points to seal his side a big win. The game also marked the return of Chris Middleton after a long injury layoff.

The Nuggets have a small 6-4 advantage over the Bucks in their last ten meetings. This will be their first meeting of the season as both teams will be at full strength to face each other.

Although the Bucks are at home, it would be unfair to discard the Nuggets completely. They are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games after an against-the-spread loss. Expect a close contest.
