Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Charlotte Hornets are entering a three-game losing streak and with the hopes to stop the bleeding already. They are coming off from back-to-back losses against the Philadelphia 76ers and the most recent one was by a wide margin of 17 points. Gordon Hayward looks like the player he was during his days as a Utah Jazz and gave the team 18 points, eight rebounds, four assists, a block, and a steal. Devonte Graham chipped in with 15 points while PJ Washington and Terry Rozier each had 12. The upside of the game was seeing LaMelo Ball getting more comfortable in the NBA as the rookie tallied 12 points, nine assists, seven rebounds, and two steals.

Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks find themselves on back-to-back losses and lost three of their last four games. They even lost to the New York Knicks during their last game by five points, 108-113. Trae Young did what he can to lift the team with 31 points and 14 assists but he had a total of eight turnovers. DeAndre Hunter followed through with 23 points, eight rebounds, and three triples while Cling Capela had a dozen points and boards. John Collins had 18 points and 8 rebounds but the team needs to address how they are defending opponents as it looks like their Achilles heel.
