New York Knicks vs Charlotte Hornets Betting Picks
The Knicks are 3-7 in their last 10; the Hornets are worse at 2-8 over that stretch. However, Charlotte came away with a 103-102 squeaker against the Knicks in their first meeting last December. That victory might have played a factor why online sports betting shops picked the Hornets as the slight favorite in this game.
Moneyline: Back the Knicks at +110. New York has been playing competitive basketball as of late. Julius Randle and Marcus Morris have been productive in their starting roles, and I expect this frontcourt tandem to play their part in beating the Hornets.
ATS: Pick the Knicks to cover the 2-point spread. New York is 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games and 5-0 ATS in their last five.
TOTALs: Bet on the UNDER at 212 points. The total has gone OVER once in the Knicks last five games. More so, the first Knicks-Hornets game this season produced just 205 points.
Score Prediction: 105 – 99 Knicks
