Charlotte Hornets Betting

Life after Kemba Walker has been rough for the Charlotte Hornets, who are now virtually out of the playoff picture. DeVonte Graham has been a revelation for Charlotte this year, leading the team in points and assists per game. Terry Rozier has had a rough start but is slowly getting his groove back in a role of an off guard. Still, the Hornets are lacking firepower outside their backcourt. They are the worst scoring team in the NBA at 102 points per game.

Players to Watch: Terry Rozier (18.0 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 4.3 APG)

Devonte’ Graham (18.0 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 7.7 APG)

Miles Bridges (12.4 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 1.8 APG)

Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets have been shaky these past two weeks, yet hiccups here and there are byproducts of load management for their two stars: Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Everybody knows Houston is up there with the NBA elites whenever these two superstars play together. In Sunday’s 117-109 win over the Pelicans, the duo proved just like that as Harden recorded 40 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists and Westbrook finished with

Players to Watch: James Harden (35.7 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 7.2 APG)

Russell Westbrook (26.4 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 7.4 APG)

Eric Gordon (15.7 PPG, 2.0 RPG and 1.5 APG)

Charlotte Hornets vs Houston Rockets Betting Picks

The Rockets entering as huge spread favorites over the Hornets comes as no surprise since Houston is 9-1 in their last 10 head-to-head meetings. The Rockets are an explosive team especially if both Harden and Westbrook are playing at their best. They tend to be a very good first half team so for online sports betting punters waging in on halftime scores, watch out them to drop at least 60-70 points through the first 24 minutes of play.

Moneyline: Pick the Rockets at -1300. Dropping an NBA bet on the Rockets against the Hornets might not be as profitable compared to what other games can offer, but at least it’s the safest bet on Tuesday’s night schedule.

ATS: Pick the Hornets to cover the 14-point spread. By the end of betting activities in Vegas, I can see the Rockets coming in with at least 13-point spread. It presents a big opportunity for the Hornets, who covered a 14-point spread vs. the Bucks several days ago.

TOTALs: Back the UNDER at 224.5 points. The Rockets offense is high-powered, the Hornets’ not so much. Houston might score 120 points or more again in this game, but I feel the Hornets’ lackluster offense will drag down the total score.

Score Prediction: 125 – 103 Rockets
