Nikola Vucevic Over 1.5 Made Three-Pointers (+104)

Nikola Vucevic is in a great matchup to bang in a couple threes tonight.

The Chicago Bulls are taking on the Milwaukee Bucks. Not only is the total 233.0 points and the spread a respectably close 7.5, which should make for plenty of points, the Bucks are giving up a lot of three-point attempts. Over the past 15 games, Milwaukee has allowed a three-point attempt rate of 42.1%, the sixth-highest. For the season, the Bucks own the second-highest three-point attempt rate allowed (45.0%).

Vucevic has hit multiple treys in three of his past five games, and our model projects him to make 2.2 threes on 6.0 tries against Milwaukee. This is a great prop bet to target.

Nikola Jokic Triple-Double and Denver to Win (+260)

Our model projects Nikola Jokic to amass 26.1 points, 12.4 boards and 8.1 assists tonight versus the Los Angeles Clippers. Assists will likely be the biggest hurdle for Jokic to get a triple-double, and the Joker hasn't had 10-plus dimes in any of his last seven games.

But he does have at least eight assists four times in that span, and prior to the past seven games, Jokic had recorded at least 11 assists in four of five games.

In a game in which the spread is just 6.5 points (in the Denver Nuggets' favor), Jokic should get his full run, and I like his chances of recording a triple-double.

As for the Nuggets' win odds, they're 6.5-point favorites and -255 on the moneyline. That moneyline implies win odds of 71.8%. We like Denver a little more, giving them an 82.4% chance to win.
