Hornets vs. Bucks Pick

NBA Predictions: Is total set too high for Hornets at Bucks game? 10/23/17

Will the Charlotte Hornets and host Milwaukee Bucks play a lower-scoring game than oddsmakers believe Monday night? Tip time is 8PM EST.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Bucks are a 7.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 201.

Charlotte enters the game with a 1-1 record after a 109-91 home win over the Hawks. Milwaukee is 2-1 after it downed the Trail Blazers 113-110 at home. The four meetings were split 2-2 last season straight up and ATS. The total went over three times.

In their last win, the Hornets were led by Dwight Howard as he tallied 20 points and 15 rebounds against his former team. Kemba Walker had a game-high 26 points to go with nine assists and four boards. Jeremy Lamb scored 15 points, while Frank Kaminsky had 21 points and six boards off the bench. Charlotte trailed 28-18 through one quarter before rallying and dominating the rest of the way.

The Bucks were led by a career-high scoring effort from Giannis Antetokounmpo in the win over Portland as he poured in 44 points to go with eight rebounds, four assists and two steals. Khris Middleton had 18 points and six rebounds, while Tony Snell scored 17. 

Charlotte is 6-1 ATS in its last seven meetings in Milwaukee. 

Bet on Hornets vs. Bucks

Charlotte and Milwaukee both play at slower paces and are above-average defensively. Bettors have been pounding the under causing the total to drop from 206.5 to 201. This has the makings of a game where both teams score under 100.
