The Hornets are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog. The Bucks are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Hornets last 7 games as an underdog. The under is 13-5 in Bucks last 18 overall. The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Charlotte Hornets are a decent young team that's playing with confidence and has value in the underdog role. However, the Milwaukee Bucks are as healthy as they've been all season, and they're starting to find their footing. The Bucks have not only won seven straight games, but they're winning their last five games by an average of 18 points while shooting 50.5 percent from the field. I'm not stepping in front of the Bucks right now. I'll lay the chalk.
