BETTING STRATEGY

Charlotte has been playing solid basketball as of late, but after a 118-105 home loss to the Cavaliers a few days ago it appears the steam has run out. Washington hasn't been playing its best basketball, but the return of Wall should help immensely. The Wizards should have plenty of motivation to get a win over the Hornets after three losses in the series, Take the home team.
