Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Charlotte Hornets are on a big dip in the NBA standings after losing four consecutive matches. They now carry a 6-9 record and out of the playoff picture in the NBA Eastern Conference. LaMelo Ball has been inconsistent recently and the rookie is looking to get through the rookie slump soon. Gordon Hayward is looking good as the teamโ€™s best player plus they have Cody Zeller back. The returning center still has some rust to shake but expect the team to break him in gently every game as this team lacks the bigs to compete against larger teams in the league.

Players to watch: G. Hayward SF 14 GP 14 GS 34.6 MIN 23.1 PTS 0.6 OR 4.6 DR 5.1 REB 3.7 AST 1.3 STL 0.4 BLK 2.1 TO 2 PF 1.7 AST/TO 20.2 PER

Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic has Evan Fournier back and has been 1-1 since the shooting guard came back. That is quite an improvement since this team was coming from a six-game losing streak before that. They almost got the win as the Magic lost to the Indiana Pacers in overtime by just two points, 118-120. Fournier almost had a double-double with 26 points and nine assists and that was a good compliment with Nikola Vucevic doing 24 points and 12 rebounds. With the loss of Markelle Fultz, Fournier looks to carry some point guard roles from time-to-time as the team tries to make a comeback from the losing streak.

Players to Watch: N. Vucevic C 16 GP 16 GS 33 MIN 23.3 PTS 2.4 OR 8.4 DR 10.9 REB 3.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.6 BLK 1.3 TO 1.7 PF 2.6 AST/TO 26.2 PER
