Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Hornets got a rude welcome North of the Border on Monday, as leading scorer Devonte Graham was held down to only 11 points on 4-for-9 shooting in 132-96 blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors. Marvin Williams scored a team-high 14 points and Miles Bridges added 13 for Charlotte, who couldn’t solve the Raptors’ length and versatility on the defensive end.

Players to Watch: Devonte’ Graham (18.3 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 7.0 APG), Terry Rozier (16.4 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 4.6 APG), P.J. Washington (12.5 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 1.5 APG)

Brooklyn Nets Betting

Without Kyrie Irving and Caris Levert, the Brooklyn Nets learned that they just couldn’t outslug other teams. Monday’s 115-86 loss to Indiana exposed that scoring deficiency as they shot 30-for-84 (35.7 percent) on the floor. Spencer Dinwiddie tried to carry his team on his back with 28 points, but in the end, the Nets just didn’t have the extra kick in their offense to outgun the Pacers.

Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (28.5 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 7.2 RPG), Spencer Dinwiddie (18.5 PPG, 2.4 RPG, 4.8 APG), Caris LeVert (16.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.0 APG)

Charlotte Hornets vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks

Online betting sites must be really concerned with the Nets’ situation right now after losing four of their last five games and missing their two leading scorers due to injuries. Kyrie Irving is expected to sit out for the third straight game due to a shoulder problem, leaving Dinwiddie to fill in that gaping hole.

Moneyline: The Hornets and the Nets split their regular-season series last season at 2-2. The Nets would have been the easy favorite in this match if they only keep Kyrie Irving and Caris Levert healthy up to this point, but for now, I will give the Hornets a slight edge.

ATS: The Hornets are 7-6-1 ATS this season and 4-2-1 ATS on the road. A 4.5-point boost would have been big if Charlotte is actually facing a healthier Nets team. However, the lack of capable scorers on the Nets’ roster leaves the Hornets the ideal pick to not only cover the spread but also win the game straight up.

TOTALs: The total opened at a high 221.5 points. The Nets and Hornets are averaging a combined 220 points this season. Although both teams failed to cross the 100-point mark in their last game, I feel they will have much better scoring output in this game. For that, I pick OVER.

Score Prediction: 115-108 Hornets
