Nets vs. Hornets NBA Predictions: Will Charlotte Finally Cover? 2/22/18

Despite their failure to cover the spread in six straight games, are the Hornets a good bet to post a win at the betting window when they host the Nets at 7:00 p.m. ET tonight?

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook YouWager, the Hornets are 7.5-point home favorites to beat the Nets, who also opened as 7.5-point road underdogs. The total has moved a little, climbing to 214 after hitting the board at 213.5.

Injury to Watch

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson remains out with a groin injury for the Nets but the Hornets come into this game healthy.

Betting Strategy

Take Brooklyn. The underdog is 13-3 against the spread in the last 16 meetings between these two teams and the road squad has covered in eight of the last 11 meetings. The Nets are also a perfect 6-0 at the betting window in their last six games versus the Hornets and have covered six straight in Charlotte.
