After a couple of disappointing performances and losses against Detroit and Milwaukee, the Charlotte Hornets responded well with 2 wins over Cleveland and San Antonio. More importantly, this team is scoring at a high level once again after struggling for the majority of February.
In their last 3 of 4 games they’ve put up 123, 119 and 126 points which is encouraging considering they were top of the league in scoring for the first couple of months of the season and then they fell down a couple of spots. Not having Gordon Hayward around played a huge part in all that, he continues to recover from his ankle injury and there’s no timetable set for his return.
Heading into tonight’s game Charlotte has just 2 wins in their last 10 home games and against East coast teams they are just 3-8 SU in their last 11.
Time is running out for the star studded Nets as they find themselves just in 9th place in the Eastern Conference standings, half a game ahead of the Atlanta Hawks in 10th. With a win tonight though they could leapfrog the Hornets who have an identical record with them.
This team looks destined to make the play-in tournament, it hasn’t been smooth sailing since the all-star break and they’ve now lost 4 in a row. Boston beat them on Sunday 126-120 despite them having both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving at their disposal.
There was no answer for Jayson Tatum who torched them for 54 points. Luckily for them the Hornets don’t have a player capable of dominating like that, so that should make life easier in tonight’s game. The Nets enter tonight’s game as 3.5-point favourites, they’ve covered the spread in 13 of their last 20 games vs Charlotte.
It’s time for the Nets to get on some kind of a win streak, otherwise they could risk even making the play-in tournament. Having Durant and Irving here should be enough to take care of a Charlotte team that has beaten them already once this season. Go with the road team.
Charlotte Hornets vs Brooklyn Nets Predictions & Odds
Bettors have made a lot of money on Brooklyn Nets games lately when backing the over as that bet has cashed 10 times in 13 games for them, including 6 of their last 7 on the road. For the season this team is 20-14 on the O/U in away games and they’re coming off a game at Boston which produced 246 points.
The Hornets have also had some high scoring games lately, but the under has been landing more consistently for them. In their last 15 games that bet has cashed 10 times and in games against the Nets the under has cashed 4 times in the last 5 played in Charlotte. That could be a sign of things to come tonight as well.
Nets head coach Steve Nash knows that in order to win some games this team will have to turn it up on defence, trying to outscore teams is not a recipe that works this late in the regular season. Charlotte is just 14-16 on the O/U at home this season and with the first meeting between these two teams finishing with just 206 points, I think backing the under is the way to go here.
