The Denver Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks face off on Wednesday night, and Denver is looking to build its lead in the Western Conference.

The Nuggets have several players listed as questionable for this game, which makes betting props a little tricky, but there are still two plays I think that are worth betting in this game:

Nuggets vs. Bucks best NBA prop bets today

  • Denver Nuggets 1Q +3.5 vs. Milwaukee Bucks
  • Grayson Allen OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made

Denver Nuggets 1Q +3.5 vs. Milwaukee Bucks

The Denver Nuggets could be down several players in this game with Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murrary, Bones Hyland, Michael Porter Jr. and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope all listed as questionable.

However, Denver getting 3.5 points in the first quarter is crazy value.

The Nuggets ranks first in the NBA in net rating in the opening frame by a wide margin, while the Bucks clock in at No. 8, nearly 10 points worse than Denver.

If Denver starts fast again, they’ll at least cover this line, if not win the quarter outright. It’s a risk if Jokic and Murray get ruled out, but it may be one worth taking.

Grayson Allen OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made

Nuggets fans may not want to see Grayson Allen have a good game, but we’re betting props to make some extra scratch, right?

Allen has been terrific shooting the 3-ball this season, going 39.9 percent from beyond the arc, and he’s hit multiple 3s in nine of his last 13 games.

Even with Khris Middleton back in the lineup, the Bucks are going to use Allen to space the floor, and he’s been great in that role.

He’s worth a shot to hit two treys tonight.
