Bet Tonight's NBA Action

OUR PREDICTION: The Hornets have been a bad bet against the Suns in recent meetings, covering just twice over their last eight games. They've also struggled to cover against bad teams. For example, they're 1-7-1 at the betting window in their last nine games when playing a team with a losing record. They're also just 5-15-1 at the betting window in their last 21 games versus an opponent with a winning percentage below .400. As bad as the Suns are, they're a perfect 7-0 against the number in their last seven games versus Southeast foes and have covered in 12 of their last 16 games against Eastern Conference competition.
