The Charlotte Hornets travel to the State Farm Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night.

The Charlotte Hornets kicked off their season with a big win, but they are now looking to bounce back after getting stomped by the Pelicans in a 124-112 loss on Friday. Gordon Hayward led the team with 26 points and seven assists, Terry Rozier added 23 points with eight rebounds and 11 assists while Kelly Oubre Jr. chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Hornets shot 45 percent from the field and 13 of 34 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and were always on the back foot after leaking 35 points in the first quarter. The Hornets got decent production out of their reserves who outscored the Pelicans’ bench, but there was no matching the Pelicans’ starters who were on a roll all night.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks will be aiming for a third straight victory after taking down the Magic in a 108-98 win on Friday. Trae Young led the team with 25 points and 13 assists, John Collins added 23 points with 13 rebounds and three assists while Dejounte Murray tallied 20 points with nine rebounds, nine assists and four steals. As a team, the Hawks shot 44 percent from the field and 13 of 31 from the 3-point line as they managed just 19 points in the first quarter to trail for most of the contest until they switched on in the fourth quarter where they held the Magic to just 17 points to pull away and win comfortably in the end.

Looking at the betting trends, the Hornets are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss, 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Hawks are 1-6 ATS in their last seven Sunday games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 home games against a team with a winning road record.

Head to head, the under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings overall and the Hornets are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Atlanta.

The Hornets are coming into this one with mixed emotions as they won their first game before getting routed by the Pelicans on Friday,  while the Hawks have hit the ground running with two wins on the trot. Young looks to be in mid-season form along with John Collins and Murray is fitting in nicely with his new teammates. The Hornets hang around for the first half, but I expect the Hawks to pull away and win big at home.
