The Washington Wizards have been in horrid form as they've lost 10 of their last 11 games and they will be hoping to arrest a six-game slide after getting beaten by the Bucks in a 142-129 loss on Monday.

As a team, the Wizards shot 55 percent from the field and 10 of 29 from the 3-point line which was good enough to hang with the Bucks until the fourth quarter where they got blown out by 38-27 to lose by double-digits in the end.

Peter's Pick

The Wizards are coming into this one as one of the coldest teams in the league and the Hornets were in similar form before their shocking upset win over the Celtics on Monday. You couldn't back either side with much confidence these days, but there is just a bit more optimism around the Hornets now and I think they can build on it with another win over the toothless Wizards. This should be a close one, but in the end I have the Hornets getting the win and cover at the short line.

Peter’s Pick Charlotte -3.5
