Bucks 118, Hornets 95
As you would expect, the Bucks (-1112) are monster moneyline favorites against the Hornets (+675) at the neutral site. While the Bucks are an incredibly safe bet to win this game, it’s not a smart pick to wager on this moneyline given the lack of a payout. PASS in favor of the point spread.

Line/Against the Spread(ATS)
The BUCKS (-13.5, -115) are double-digit favorites over the Hornets Friday afternoon in France and it’s easy to understand why. Milwaukee has been fantastic against the spread this season, going 25-20 despite always having big point spreads to cover. While 13.5 points seem like a ton, the Bucks should have no problem covering this spread as they have won by double digits in five of their last six games. Take the Bucks to cover this spread.
The point total for this Eastern Conference matchup is set at 216.5 points, but that feels slightly too high. The Bucks have the league’s No. 1 ranked offense, averaging nearly 120 points per contest. The Hornets, on the other hand, have the league’s worst offense as they regularly struggle to cross the 100-point mark. I expect the Bucks to put up a ton of points, but for the UNDER 216.7 (+105) to ultimately hit in Paris.
