New York Knicks vs Charlotte Hornets 1/11/2021 Betting Odds
New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks have been slipping and in danger of entering their first losing streak of the season after winning three consecutive games. This team picked up losses against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the latest was the Denver Nuggets by a wide margin of 25 points. Julius Randle has been doing his part and even elevating his passing game but his teammates have been inconsistent. Elfrid Payton did fairly well but the Knicks have a bigger expectation from RJ Barrett to be their best option for the offense in the backcourt position. The bench did not perform well either and will be needed by the team if they want to get a win over the Hornets.
Players to watch: J. Randle PF 9 GP 9 GS 37.7 MIN 22.6 PTS 1.8 OR 10.2 DR 12 REB 7.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 4.6 TO 3.9 PF 1.6 AST/TO 19.29 PER
A. Burks SG 3 GP 0 GS 27.7 MIN 20.7 PTS 0 OR 3.7 DR 3.7 REB 3.7 AST 1 STL 0.7 BLK 2.3 TO 3.3 PF 1.6 AST/TO 26.43 PER

Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets have their budding rookie LaMelo Ball having great games recently. The league’s third overall pick in this draft made history being the youngest player to record a triple-double with 22 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists. The secret is now out and it will be interesting when the Hornets will put him in the starting role. Gordon Hayward took a step back and watched Ball operate on the Hawks and they got a better contribution from PJ Washington this time around. DeVonte Graham has been struggling as well and he may be replaced by Ball soon.
Players to Watch: G. Hayward SF 10 GP 10 GS 34.8 MIN 21.4 PTS 0.6 OR 4.8 DR 5.4 REB 4.1 AST 1.5 STL 0.3 BLK 2.2 TO 2.6 PF 1.9 AST/TO 18.05 PER
T. Rozier SG 10 GP 10 GS 31.9 MIN 20.3 PTS 0.6 OR 2.7 DR 3.3 REB 2.9 AST 1.5 STL 0.6 BLK 2 TO 2.3 PF 1.5 AST/TO 18.31 PER
L. Ball PG 10 GP 0 GS 24.9 MIN 12.8 PTS 2 OR 4.3 DR 6.3 REB 5.9 AST 1.5 STL 0.3 BLK 2.1 TO 2.7 PF 2.8 AST/TO 19.97 PER.
