The latest NBA betting tips are back, and we’ve selected an extremely exciting Eastern Conference matchup. On Wednesday evening, we will see the Milwaukee Bucks host the Charlotte Hornets. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the two teams, as well as our latest tips & predictions!
In their season opener, the Milwaukee Bucks started their new campaign with an impressive win, beating the Brooklyn Nets 127-104. However, after a number of losses following that win, the Bucks were struggling in the early stages. Since, in more recent weeks, Milwaukee have started to find their feet in the league, and are now going into their game with the Hornets on a seven-game winning streak. The Bucks overcame the LA Lakers, beating them 109-102, before back-to-back victories against the Orlando Magic. Will the Bucks be able to extend their winning streak to eight tonight?
Heading into tonight’s matchup, the Charlotte Hornets have back-to-back defeats in the league. In contrast to their current form, the Hornets started their campaign impressively, winning their first three matchups. That included an important 123-112 victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers in game two of the new season. Some weeks have been unfortunate losses for Charlotte, including the recent, high-scoring 143-146 loss to the Houston Rockets. Now, the Hornets will want to turn their momentum around, and face a tough challenge in the Bucks.
