Why Bet on the Charlotte Hornets?

The Hornets have one of the worst records this season. They just picked up their 24th loss of the season after an 11-point defeat to the Trail Blazers. However, head coach Steve Clifford and his roster look forward to closing their two-game regular-season series with the Dubs on a positive note.

Charlotte averages 111.3 points per game on 44.7% shooting. LaMelo Ball leads the team in scoring, averaging 23.33 points per game. The 21-year-old guard also tops the Hornets’ stats in assists, recording eight assists per game. As he starts to pick up after taking time off due to injury, ball rotation for the team looks much better, with an average of 24.8 assists per game. Terry Rozier and Kelly Oubre Jr are the two other leading scorers of the Hornets, putting up 20.96 and 20.76 points per game, respectively.

The hosts have to put in more work defensively. They allow 118.1 opponent points per game on 45.1% opponent shooting. Charlotte allows 55.7% of opponent two-point attempts. However, the squad does well when it comes to picking up rebounds. The Hornets have a top-five total rebound per game record at 54.3 boards per game. Mason Plumlee is their leading rebounder with 9.06 boards per game on 33 appearances.

Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?

There’s still a long way to go this season and enough time for the 2021-22 NBA champions to recover from an underwhelming start to their campaign. Golden State is 16-18 this season and well outside the top eight of the Western Conference. They dropped five of their last seven games but did well to outpace the third seed in the same conference, the Memphis Grizzlies, in their last outing.

The Warriors are the fifth-highest-scoring team right now. They average 116.7 points per game on 47.7% shooting. Despite the dipping trend, the squad maintains some of the most impressive shooting stats to date. They hit 56.6% of their two-point shots while keeping long-range shots at 38.1%. The Dubs are also competent free-throw shooters and hit 79.5% of their attempts from the line. Stephen Curry won’t be playing against the Hornets on Tuesday night, which means scoring duties are divided between the second and Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole.

Defensively, the Warriors have some catching up to do. It’s going to be a challenging night for the roster as Draymond Green is on day-to-day. As a team, they hold opponents to 117.6 points per game on 46.9% shooting. Furthermore, Golden State averages 50.5 total boards per game.

Hornets vs. Warriors Betting Trends

  • The Hornets are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games.
  • The Hornets 2-10 SU in their last 12 games.
  • The totals went over in three of the Knicks’ last six road games.
  • The Warriors are 4-1 in their last five games at Chase Center (4-1 ATS).
  • The Warriors are 2-3 in their last five games (2-3 ATS).
  • The totals went over in four of the Warriors’ last five games.

Hornets vs. Warriors Expert Betting Prediction

The Warriors are shorthanded again as starting point guard Stephen Curry and defensive key player Andrew Wiggins are out of the picture due to injury. This means Jordan Poole and Donte DiVincenzo have to step up for Steve Kerr once again. Draymond Green is on day-to-day but having home advantage gives this squad a sigh of relief. They are the slight favorites against a struggling Hornets side. However, the visitors are no slouches. Once this team gets up to pace, covering the spread and even pulling off another win versus the Warriors is a possibility. Having a healthier side play with a banged-up Dubs gives the Hornets a good shot at snatching up this road contest.
