The Bucks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 Sunday games. The Hornets are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games. The road team is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Anybody know who these Bucks are? Me neither. It's like ever since Milwaukee added Greg Monroe, the defense has taken a nose dive. The Hornets are playing lights out ball at home. I'll lay the six points here.
