Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Hornets are still rebuilding themselves following the departure of Kemba Walker, and no doubt life hasn’t been easier for this team. The silver lining this season though is the outstanding play of second-year point guard Devonte’ Graham, who has become a regular starter after opening the season as a bench player. Graham is leading his team in points and assists per game, giving the Hornets’ hope that there’s a life after Kemba Walker.

Players to Watch: Devonte’ Graham (18.9 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 7.8 APG)

Terry Rozier (18.2 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 4.4 APG)

P.J. Washington (12.5 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 2.0 APG)

Phoenix Suns Betting

After a torrid hot start in October and November, the Suns fizzled down over their next 20 games. The three-point shooting that was clicking before is no longer a viable option for their offense. Devin Booker is still playing at an All-Star level. The young shooting guard is the team’s leader in almost every major statistical category. Unfortunately, it seems his effort won’t be enough to lead the Suns back to the playoffs after a decade-long drought.

Players to Watch: Devin Booker (26.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 6.5 APG)

Kelly Oubre, Jr. (18.2 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 1.7 APG)

Deandre Ayton (15.4 PPG, 11.9 RPG, 2.3 APG)

Charlotte Hornets vs Phoenix Suns Betting Picks

The Hornets are 2-8 in their last 10 games and will enter the game as the 8-point dogs to the Suns, who are 4-6 in their last 10 games but are coming off a 98-94 win over the Orlando Magic. Top online sportsbooks are betting on the home team to deliver. Charlotte is not a pushover team, though, especially if their guards are hitting their shots.

Moneyline: The Suns are 8-14 at home overall and 5-3 against an Eastern Conference opponent. I am backing Phoenix to win straight up. Aside from having much better personnel, the Hornets look disjointed on both ends of the floor in their past few games.

ATS: The Suns failed to cover the spread in their last three games, and I expect it to continue with the spread set at 8 points. I pick the Hornets to grind out an ATS victory on the road.

TOTALs: The total opened at 218 points. The combined score went UNDER in 7 of the Hornets’ last 10 games. Moreover, their first head-to-head matchup this season only produced 213 points. I pick UNDER.

Score Prediction: 115 – 110 Hornets
