The Knicks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a road favorite and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Hornets are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games. The under is 7-2 in Knicks last 9 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 4-0 in Hornets last 4 overall. The Knicks are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Charlotte. The over is 18-7-2 in the last 27 meetings.

The Charlotte Hornets have won three straight meetings against the Knicks and six of the last eight meetings overall. I get that the Knicks have the rest advantage, but they're also losing on the road by an average of 8.3 points and aren't the type of team you want to back in the favorite role often. These aren't games I'm looking to bet personally, but if forced to bet it, I'd want the home team. I'm not backing the Knicks much these days, and I'm certainly not doing it in a favorite role on the road.
