Monday's NBA schedule includes the Charlotte Hornets at Milwaukee Bucks on NBA TV tipping off at 8:00 p.m. EST. The Bucks (36-25) are a 10.5-point favorite against the Hornets (30-32) with the highest total on Monday's NBA slate at 238.5.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Hornets-Bucks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Alternate Spreads - Charlotte +6.5 (+154)
Charlotte has been on a scoring spree, hitting at least 118 points in five of their last six games. They have also scored at least 28 points in the first quarter in their last three games. The Bucks have lost 4-of-5 including 3-of-4 at home while going 0-5 ATS. Only once this season has Charlotte been an underdog of more than 10 points, and they covered at Utah. The Hornets defense is a concern, but they can match scoring and taking an alternate point spread at a solid plus price is worth a play.
2. Miles Bridges - Points: Over 19.5 (-114)
Power forward Miles Bridges is the Hornets go-to-guy early, as he's taken an attempt to make Charlottes first basket in seven of their last eight games. Two teams that play among the fastest in the league will score more as the Bucks defensive efficiency is near league average and they have allowed at least 119 points in five straight games. Bridges can get his share having also scored at least 28 points in three of his last four games.
3. Bobby Portis - 3+ Made Threes: (+140)
What's up with Bobby Portis? The big man took 14 three pointers and made eight in Saturday's win vs Brooklyn. Earlier this month, he made 4, 5 and 6 three pointes in a 3-game stretch. The number and odds flipped on this prop this morning from 2.5 to 1.5 with heavy juice. Rather than lay it, make a better bet he'll make 3 or more or even 4 or more threes at +330.
