Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada
Its a good possibilty,The Bearing will humm ,if no grease in them or very little. I would Stop driving it to save some money cause if its a wheel bearing, it will only get worse and its 1st of all not SAFE,2nd The bearing will also damage your Hub and Spindle,and any other front end parts that heat from the bearing will Damage,Like your Front Brake Rotor and Brake Pads. So .Pull off that wheel and Check it out,You'll have to Pull Caliper and Rotors as Well.
Many times if one side goes out (Wheel Bearing) normally not long before both==I recommend you Change out Wheel Bearings and Bearing Races On BOTH sides.

Its very possible. when it starts to make the noise, about 40mpg, turn to the left and right. Does the noise get louder or go away. if it gets louder when turning to the left than the right side is usually bad and vice versa. If there is no change than it could be the tires or front differential.

It may be your alignment but if it is wheel bearings jack up the front of the vehicle and try to rock or shake the wheels by hand if there is play or it does move it is your wheel bearings
