The Hornets have the league’s worst offense, averaging 102.2 points per game while shooting 43.3 percent from the field.

Terry Rozier is adding 17.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists per contest.

Hawks drop third straight

Atlanta is coming off a 118-101 loss at Memphis on Saturday for a third straight loss. The Hawks are now 19-46 on the season, 13-19 at home, 29-35-1 against the spread and 38-27 with the over.

The Hawks are putting up 111 points per game on offense while shooting just 44.7 percent from the field and 33 percent from the arc. Defensively, Atlanta is giving up 119.2 points per game while opponents shoot 47.7 percent against them. Trae Young is leading the team with 29.4 points, 4.3 rebounds and 9.2 assists per game. John Collins is adding 21.4 points and 10.0 rebounds per game.

NBA Betting Trends


The Hornets have covered in six straight games as an underdog and in five of their last six against a losing team.


The Hawks are 0-4 against the spread in their last four Monday games, but 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 home games.


The Hawks picked up a 122-107 win over the Hornets in Charlotte in the first meeting back in December. The Hornets come into this game playing pretty well. Even in losses to the Bucks, Spurs and Nuggets, they have managed to cover. The Hawks have struggled in recent games with the Grizzlies and the Wizards, so I expect the struggles to continue against the Hornets tonight. Charlotte has been clicking lately and I like their guard play to combat Atlanta’s.

NBA Prediction: Charlotte Hornets +4.5
