The Charlotte Hornets and Milwaukee Bucks meet Saturday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum.

The Charlotte Hornets need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Charlotte Hornets are averaging 110.8 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Kemba Walker is averaging 25 points and 5.8 assists while Jeremy Lamb is averaging 15.2 points and 5.5 rebounds. Marvin Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Cody Zeller is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Charlotte Hornets are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.1 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte Hornets are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.2 rebounds per game. The Charlotte Hornets have lost four of their last six road games.

The Milwaukee Bucks look for another win after winning 14 of their last 17 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 117.3 points on 47.7 percent shooting and allowing 108.1 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27 points and 12.6 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 17.6 points and 4.3 assists. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and Eric Bledsoe is dishing 5.4 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 77.1 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.3 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won eight of their last nine home games.

The Hornets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Bucks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Hornets are 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Milwaukee and 5-0-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 7-2 in Bucks last 9 home games. The over is 6-2 in Hornets last 8 overall.

The Charlotte Hornets feel like a team that's running out of gas and are on the end of a back to back, the last place you want to be when going up against these Bucks. The Milwaukee Bucks are not only winning at home by an average of 13 points, but they're 38-24-3 ATS on the season and 18-12-1 ATS at home. The Bucks are also 9-6 ATS when a double-digit favorite. In other words, you would be sitting on some nice coin just by blindly backing the Bucks all season long. No reason to go against the trends when going up against a subpar Hornets squad.
