Preview

The Charlotte Hornets travel to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks on Monday night. This is the 4th time these teams face off, the Hornets have the lead 2-1 but are 3-0 ATS vs Bucks this season.

CHARLOTTE HORNETS

The Hornets got upset by Detroit, Kelly Olynyk made a fadeaway jumper from the baseline at the overtime buzzer and the Detroit Pistons beat Charlotte 127-126. The Hornets are 20-19 in Eastern Conference play. Charlotte ranks sixth in the NBA with 11.1 offensive rebounds per game led by Mason Plumlee averaging 2.6.

Miles Bridges is scoring 20.0 points per game and averaging 7.3 rebounds for the Hornets. Rozier is averaging 3.3 made 3-pointers over the last 10 games for Charlotte.

In their last 10 games the Hornets are 2-8, averaging 113.4 points, 50.5 rebounds, 28.5 assists, 8.4 steals and 4.6 blocks per game while shooting 44.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 114.4 points.

MILWAUKEE BUCKS

The Bucks will be looking to avoid a 3rd straight loss at home. They're 20-12 but only 11-21 ATS when they're playing at home.

Antetokounmpo is scoring 29.4 points per game and averaging 11.3 rebounds for the Bucks. Bobby Portis is averaging 2.8 made 3-pointers over the last 10 games for Milwaukee.

In their last 10 games Milwaukee are 5-5, averaging 120.2 points, 42.8 rebounds, 25.2 assists, 6.8 steals and 2.7 blocks per game while shooting 50.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 119.2 points per game.

BETTING TRENDS

Charlotte are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Charlotte's last 12 games.

Milwaukee are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Milwaukee's last 8 games.

Prediction

These are two of the best offenses in the league Charlotte ranks #1 averaging 114 ppg and Milwaukee #5 averaging 113.3 ppg, both defenses have struggled and are allowing more than 114 ppg. I'm surprised of this high spread, the Hornets aren't winning games but they're covering spreads and the Bucks don't. Milwaukee has covered the 34% of the time at home as well as home favorites. Give me the Hornets with the points.

PICK: Hornets +10 (-110)
