3 Best Prop Bets for Nuggets vs Bucks NBA Game on March 25 (Jokic Showcases Scoring, Playmaking Talents)
Saturday's NBA slate of games includes a showdown between the Denver Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks. FanDuel Sportsbook's latest odds list the Nuggets as the 3-point home favorite with the projected total set at 236.5.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Nuggets-Bucks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Nuggets vs Bucks Player Props
1. Nikola Jokic — Points + Assists: Over 35.5 (-120)
Although it's a small sample size, Nikola Jokic has stepped up his scoring and playmaking over the last few weeks. The NBA MVP candidate (+270, No. 2 on FanDuel Sportsbook) is averaging 29.6 points on 67.7% shooting and 9.0 assists over his last seven games. Furthermore, he's hit the over on the above prop in four of those games, including in his last outing against the Washington Wizards. Jokic has also made it a trend to do so at home, combining for at least 36 points and assists in seven of his last 12 outings at Ball Arena. With a chance to prove why he deserves MVP honors, look for a big performance from the Serbian superstar.
2. Giannis Antetokounmpo — Points: Under 31.5 (-120)
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been his usual dominant self lately, averaging 30.5 points over his previous 10 contests. As good as that is, it's still below tonight's projected point total. Antetokounmpo has failed to surpass 31.5 points in seven of those 10 outings — including in each of the last four. The "Greek Freak" has also finished with the under in eight of his last nine clashes with the Nuggets and didn't hit the over in any of his previous eight drips to Denver. In other words, expect Antetokounmpo to be slightly quieter than usual.
3. Brook Lopez — Threes Made: Under 1.5 (+100)
Brook Lopez has done well at helping the Bucks stretch the floor this season, averaging 1.8 threes on 37.7% shooting. While that's more his projected three-point total for tonight, don't count on him hitting the over. Lopez has finished with one or fewer three-pointers in six of his last eight games, finishing with exactly one in each of the last four. He now faces the Nuggets, who are tied for the 12th-fewest threes allowed by centers and have held opponents to a 26.9% three-point percentage over the last three games (No. 1). Lopez will still make his presence felt, but just don't count on it happening on the perimeter.
