Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Bucks are simply rolling and there seems to be no stopping them. The Hornets are unlikely to be that team even if they have won back-to-back games. Giannis Antetokounmpo will lead the Bucks anew but may need help from someone else. Khris Middleton is questionable to play with a neck issue but Eric Bledsoe could step up. Milwaukee tops the league in scoring offense with 120 points per game. They are also getting the job done offensively, limiting opponents to just 107.2 points per contest.

Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Hornets face a powerhouse team this Sunday but will try to keep in step with the Bucks. Charlotte has been struggling but have been doing better the past seven games. Terry Rozier will need to step up once more and get some help from guys like Devonte Graham and Miles Bridges. The Hornets are averaging 102.2 points on offense and allowing the opposition only 109.7 points per game. However, they may have trouble containing the streaking Bucks this weekend.
