Total O/U: 228

The Milwaukee Bucks snapped a two-game losing streak on Thursday and will look to keep it up when they host the slumping Charlotte Hornets on Saturday.

The Hornets are battling for their playoff lives with the Magic and Heat, two other teams that are under .500 and vying for that eighth seed.

Charlotte appeared to have a lock on a spot before dropping five of their last six and posting just a 3-9 record in their last 12. What’s worse, in a showdown with the Heat they allowed just 91 points and still lost 91-84.

Now their record stands at 29-35 and they are a game behind Miami for that last spot.

Milwaukee remains comfortably ahead of Toronto for top-spot in the East as both teams have dealt with short losing streaks of late.

The Bucks wrapped up a five-game road trip with losses to Utah last Saturday and Phoenix on Monday. But they cruised to an easy win over Indiana in their first game back at home, 117-98. Even with those losses, they are still 14-3 in their last 17.

The Bottom Line: Milwaukee is -12˝ point favorites and the over/under is 228 points. These teams have met twice already this year and both were decided by less than ten. That includes a Bucks home win on January 25th, 108-99. I sense a pattern and a desperate Hornets team that needs to up its game. The Pick: Bucks 113-106.

Liev NBA Prediction: Charlotte +12˝
Total O/U: Under 228
