Both teams on the end of a back to back, this is usually a spot where I want the free points with the team that didn't have to travel. However, the Bucks have to be annoyed with their performance last night against the Pelicans, and they could take it out on these young Hornets. The Charlotte Hornets are also a young team that's had issues stringing wins together this season and could be a little too happy winning last night over the Pacers. The Bucks should win this game comfortably. Should being the key word.
