Charlotte Hornets vs New York Knicks Betting Picks

The massive win over the Mavericks played a part why the Knicks will enter as 3 points NBA Moneyline favorites. Nicolas Batum’s health continues to be an issue for the Hornets, who direly need more offensive firepower from their veteran forward.

Moneyline: The Knicks are 2-3 SU at home. Although the lineups have dramatically changed for both teams this season, New York will be coming in brimming with confidence at home.

ATS: The Knicks may have a better shot at winning straight up, but it won’t be a walk in the park against the Hornets, who beat them twice in three head-to-head meetings last season. Charlotte are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games on the road.

TOTALs: This game will go OVER the total, which opened at 215 points. The Knicks and Hornets are averaging a combined 206.82 points per game this season, yet the combined scores were playing around 210 to 220 points in their last three meetings last season.

Score Prediction: 108-106 Knicks
