Charlotte Hornets -7
The Charlotte Hornets will take on the Orlando Magic tonight and I like the Hornets to win this one by double-digits and cover this road spread.
Charlotte has won 6 of their last 7 games and is coming off an impressive 109-103 victory at Washington. Charlotte is known for their offense that ranks 3rd in scoring offense at 112.2 ppg, however, their defense looked impressive on the road against Washington, holding the Wizards to just 38.7% shooting from the field & 25.0% shooting from beyond the arc.
Orlando has lost 6 of their last 7 and since losing Cole Anthony to injury, it’s been ugly for the Magic as they are coming out back-to-back blowout losses at Milwaukee. Orlando has struggled on both ends of the court as they currently rank just 26th in scoring offense & defense.
The Hornets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Magic are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 home games & 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
Charlotte has been playing better on the road as of late, winning 2 of their last 3 road games and as I just don’t expect Orlando to keep up offensively with the Hornets in this one, I thin Charlotte has no trouble covering this spread.
