Hornets vs. Wizards Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Wizards cover at small favorite vs. Hornets? 2/23/18

Are the host Washington Wizards going to continue their strong recent play tonight when they host the Charlotte Hornets on the second leg of a back-to-back for both teams? Game time is slated for 7PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Wizards are a 3.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 212 points. Washington opened as a 4.5-point fave, while the total has dropped from 213.5.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

As of Friday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets are coming in on the over. Online wager info also states that 70 percent of bets are on the over.

Charlotte has won both meetings this season, but has hosted both times as it prevailed 129-14 in overtime on Nov. 22 and 133-109 on Jan. 17. Despite the Hornets covering both times this season, the Wizards are 6-4 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The over has hit three straight times and is 7-3 over the last 10 matchups.

The Hornets has won their last two contests including last night's 111-96 home victory over the Nets. The two wins come on the heels of a four-game losing skid. Charlotte is 3-7 ATS over its last 10 games, while the over-under has gone 5-5. Washington has won three straight after defeating the host Cavaliers 110-103 Thursday night. The Wizards are 8-2 ATS over their last 10 games and the over has gone 6-4.

I have to take Washington to keep rolling here. The Wizards are 17-10 straight up at home, while the Hornets are only 9-18 on the road. The spread is small enough that Washington should be able to keep its hot stretch going, not only straight up but also ATS.

NBA DAILY PREDICTION: WASHINGTON WIZARDS -3.5
