Bet Tonight's NBA Action

OUR PREDICTION: The home team has been an excellent play for bettors in this series, going 7-1-1 at the betting window in the last nine meetings between these two teams. The Pelicans are 17-7-1 against the spread in their last 25 games versus the Hornets overall, but they're winless at 0-3-1 against the number in their last four trips to Charlotte. The Hornets are 5-2-1 at the betting window in their last eight games overall and should cover tonight as a small home favorite.
