Charlotte Hornets Betting

It was a breath of fresh air for the Hornets as they snapped a six-game losing streak. In their last game against the Cavaliers, Terry Rozier got his team going leading his team with 30 points and six three-pointers while Devonte Graham had a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. It was a bad game for Myles as he just shot 20% from the field. A good sign in this game was Dwayne Bacon doing 15 points and four rebounds off the bench. Cody Zeller and Bismack Biyombo shared minutes at the center spot to combine for 19 points and 13 rebounds. Against the Mavericks in their home court, they should try to minimize the contributions of the players surrounding Doncic to stand a chance.

Dallas Mavericks Betting

It was a Luka Doncic show once again as Dallas rolled by the Nets, 123-111 in their last game. The sophomore guard had 31 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists. Kristaps Porzingis was not playing in this game and the team got the extra boost of scoring from the bench led by Seth Curry who did 25 points of a 5-of-5 three-point shooting. Maxi Klieber had 18 points while Boban Marjanovic provided quality production with 10 points and seven rebounds in 13 minutes of gameplay. Going up with the Hornets, they should tire out the defense with their run-and-gun game. Owning a lot of shooters surrounding Doncic, they should just look for the extra pass until finding the open man.
