Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets have been on a huge slump of losing three consecutive matches and they hope to stop the bleeding soon. This team lost to the Dallas Mavericks and to the Toronto Raptors twice in Tampa Bay. Gordon Hayward got his 25 points while Terry Rozier did 24 markers. P.J. Washington had 14 points and 12 rebounds but help is coming as Cody Zeller is probably returning to action in this game against the Bulls. LaMelo Ball has been inconsistent but the rookie gets a bye since he didn’t even have many games in the pre-season and never experienced summer league.
