Charlotte Hornets vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The Charlotte Hornets aren't good, but they've at least put up a fight recently and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The Portland Trail Blazers have lost 7 straight games and have been a mess defensively all season. How in the world at the Trail Blazers favored? I don't care where the game is being played. Backing the Trail Blazers in the favorite role doesn't seem wise, especially when Henderson, Brogdon, Sharpe and others out. It's the Hornets or pass for me. This line is nuts.
