Under best play on the board in Charlotte?
The struggling Suns head to Charlotte tonight to take on the Hornets at 7:00PM ET. Will the game be a rout in Charlotte's favor?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Hornets are 13-point home favorites over the Suns while the over/under currently sits at 205.5 points, up from 205. Phoenix is in the midst of a 1-9 stretch of its last 10 games and is 5-5 against the spread during that span, while Charlotte is 7-3 straight up and 6-4 ATS over its last 10 games.
The Hornets are coming off an uninspiring loss at Atlanta on Sunday. Marvin Williams was the lone bright spot for the team as he scored 16 points to go with his nine boards, four 3-pointers, one assist and one turnover. The team needs more from players like Nicolas Batum, who has averaged just 5.7 points over his last three games. Kemba Walker also struggled on Sunday, shooting just 3-of-15 from the field on his way to nine points.
Even with their issues on Sunday, the Hornets should bounce back tonight as a heavy home favorite but will they cover? Given both teams' shooting woes, the under is the best play on the board. The under is 4-0 in the Suns' last four road games and has hit in four of the Hornets' last five overall.
