Charlotte Hornets vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Predictions Against The Spread

Will the Milwaukee Bucks stay tough at home against a struggling road team, the Charlotte Hornets, when the two meet tonight at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Milwaukee is favored at home, as the Bucks are getting odds of -5 points against the Hornets. The over/under total for the game has been set at 212 points. The home team has won and covered in three straight meetings between these two, including both meetings this season. Tonight’s contest takes place from BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Charlotte has lost four of its last five games to fall to 11-20 on the season. The Hornets have also failed to cover in three of their last four games and are 12-17-2 against the spread this year. The Hornets are putting up 104.4 points per game on offense this season while allowing 106.4 per game on defense. Kemba Walker is leading the Hornets with 21.2 points and 5.9 assists per game while Dwight Howard is adding 15.9 points and 12.5 rebounds per contest.

Milwaukee snapped a three-game losing streak on Tuesday with a big 119-116 win over Cleveland. That pushed the Bucks to 16-13 on the season. Milwaukee has covered in its last two games and sits at 12-13-4 against the spread this season. The Bucks are scoring 105 points per game on offense while allowing 105.4 per game on defense. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 29.7 points, 10.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game while Khris Middleton is adding 20.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists per contest.

Bet on Hornets vs. Bucks

Milwaukee is coming off a big win, but that could lead to a letdown tonight. The Bucks were pretty hyped by beating the Cavs in the fashion they did, but Milwaukee has been an inconsistent team this year. The Hornets may not be great, but they have been pretty competitive in recent weeks and own wins at Oklahoma City and a cover at Houston. The public betting is backing the Bucks, but I think the Hornets will find a way to cover.
