MILWAUKEE BUCKS VS. CHARLOTTE HORNETS PREDICTIONS

After finishing 10th in the East with a record of 33-39 SU last year, Charlotte jumped out to a surprisingly strong to this season, as the Hornets opened with a sturdy 13-8 SU and 12-9 ATS run – despite getting tagged as underdogs in 15 of those matchups.

The Hornets have cooled off a bit recently though, considering Charlotte enters Monday’s contest riding a lackluster 8-11 SU skid – with more than half of those losses coming by nine points or more (6).

On the other hand, Milwaukee stumbled out to a slightly disappointing start to the year, as the Bucks kicked things off with a lackluster 6-8 SU and ATS skid – despite getting tagged as favorites in ten of those contests.

The Bucks have gradually turned things around since their opening stretch though, considering Milwaukee enters Monday sitting at 20-8 SU across the last 28 games – yet, still sit just 13-15 ATS during that span.

I’ll take Milwaukee here, as despite falling to Charlotte in a hard-fought battle this past Saturday (114-106), the Bucks are still 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last ten games, while averaging 118.8 PPG across that span – and they’ll likely bounce back in a rematch against a Hornets squad that’s just 5-5 SU across that same timeframe.

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 26-16
  • ATS: 19-23
  • O/U: 18-24

After finishing with the best record in the East in two of the last three regular seasons, Milwaukee’s rough start was incredibly surprising, considering the Bucks’ compiled a record of 162-65 SU across the previous three seasons – and then opened this year just 6-8 SU.

Since mid-November though, Milwaukee has played excellent basketball when healthy, considering the Bucks are 18-8 SU across their latest 26-game stretch – with five of those losses coming in the absence of Antetokounmpo.

  • SU: 21-19
  • ATS: 24-16
  • O/U: 22-17-1

After last year’s disappointing 33-39 showing, the Hornets stormed out to a red-hot start to this season, as Charlotte kicked things off with an impressive 13-8 SU run, which included tough upset victories over the Nets, Warriors, Grizzlies, and Blazers.

Charlotte has somewhat struggled as of late though, considering the Hornets are just 8-11 SU across the last 19 games – with nearly half of those losses coming by double-digits (5).

The Bucks are 7-3 SU in their last ten matchups against Charlotte. (AP)

MILWAUKEE BUCKS VS. CHARLOTTE HORNETS HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Bucks and Hornets split their first two matchups of the season 1-1, with the first of those events soaring over the total at a score of 127-125 – while Saturday’s matchup stayed well under with a score of 114-106.

KEY PLAYERS TO WATCH

  • MIL: Giannis Antetokounmpo - PF (28.5 PPG, 11.4 REB, 5.9 AST)
  • MIL: Khris Middleton - SG (18.8 PPG, 5.5 REB, 5.1 AST)

MILWAUKEE BUCKS VS. CHARLOTTE HORNETS BETTING CONCLUSION

After knocking off Milwaukee on Saturday night (114-106), the Hornets enter Monday’s rematch as narrow home underdogs against the visiting Bucks – marking the fourth time Charlotte has been an underdog across the last six games.

I’ll lay the point with Milwaukee here, as the Bucks strike me as the far more talented team in this matchup – and I highly doubt they’ll drop a second straight to Charlotte this Monday.

  • The Bucks are 1-6 ATS in their last seven matchups against Charlotte.
  • The Hornets are 3-7 SU in their last ten matchups against Milwaukee.
