Charlotte Hornets Betting
After a four-game winning streak, the Charlotte Hornets are now on back-to-back losses. Their last match was against the Toronto Raptors and hope that they give them payback for the last loss. Gordon Hayward did not play but the team tried to fill in the hole well. Terry Rosier led the team with 22 points while PJ Washington had a double-double of 20 points and 11 boards. LaMelo Ball came off the bench with 14 points, 11 assists, and six rebounds but it was Malik Monk that came alive giving the team 10 points. This team needs to close out games by themselves without Hayward in the roster.

Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors just avoided entering into a losing streak with a win over the Charlotte Hornets in their last game, 111-108. Chris Boucher is making his case for being this year’s NBA Sixth Man Awardee finishing with 25 points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks. Fred VanVleet gave the team 17 points while Kyle Lowry had 16. The team almost lost to the Hornets but expect them to be more cerebral with Nick Nurse at the helm. Paskal Siakam has been slumping after his All-Star year and he needs to channel how to get to that form again. The team’s depth has been sorely lacking with the departure of Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka.
Players to Watch: F. VanVleet SG 11 GP 11 GS 35.8 MIN 20.5 PTS 0.9 OR 3.3 DR 4.2 REB 6 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 1.8 TO 1.9 PF 3.3 AST/TO 18.06 PER
