Atlanta Hawks vs Charlotte Hornets 1/9/2021 Betting Odds
Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks are looking forward to battling the Charlotte Hornets again after beating them during their last encounter, 94-102. Trae Young came in that match with his worst game of the season and he is not expected to have the same output on two consecutive matches. Clint Capela was off-tuned but had been dominating the paint with 19 rebounds. Expect this team to adjust to what Gordon Hayward will try to do on offense and he should get a lot of defenders around him this time around. John Collins has been the best player for the team during that game and he is expected to come out with the same production.

Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets are coming off from a very convincing victory over the New Orleans Pelicans and this game against the Atlanta Hawks will be the tail end of their back-to-back. LaMelo Ball feels the momentum as he defeated his brother in a much-anticipated matchup. The rookie almost had a triple-double with 12 points, ten rebounds, and nine assists but he got help from Gordon Hayward who provided 26 points. Five other Hornets scored in double-figures and this is a good sign for them picking up the chemistry already. DeVonte Graham has been playing good but they need Terry Rozier to be more accurate with his shots.
Players to Watch: G. Hayward SF 8 GP 8 GS 34.4 MIN 21.9 PTS 0.5 OR 5.3 DR 5.8 REB 4.4 AST 1.5 STL 0.4 BLK 2 TO 2.8 PF 2.2 AST/TO 19.27 PER
T. Rozier PG 8 GP 8 GS 31 MIN 20.6 PTS 0.6 OR 2.5 DR 3.1 REB 2.8 AST 1 STL 0.6 BLK 2 TO 2.4 PF 1.4 AST/TO 18.46 PER
