Charlotte Hornets DFS Spin

Gordon Hayward shot 9-of-19 from the field and 5-of-6 from the foul line in Tuesday’s win over the Wizards, accounting for 26 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes. Hayward has been in a bit of a slump recently, shooting 43% or worse from the field in five of his last seven games. He turned things around Monday night, making nearly half of his shot attempts while also posting his first double-double February 5. Charlotte has five more games remaining on this road trip, which includes games against Brooklyn (Thursday), Boston (Sunday and Milwaukee (next Friday). They’ll need Hayward to be at their best in order to post a respectable record in this six-game trip.

Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin

Kyrie Irving powered the Nets to a 120-108 win over the Rockets on Wednesday with 31 points on 12-of-25 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe. Irving added six rebounds, 12 assists, three 3-pointers, one steal and just two turnovers in his 39 minutes of floor time, and he could again be very busy on Thursday if James Harden (hamstring) is forced to miss that one. With both Harden and Kevin Durant (hamstring) off the floor this season, Irving's usage rate gets a 7.4-point bump.

Hornets vs. Nets Betting Prediction

The Hornets have covered the spread in their last five games, are 5-0 against the number in their last five games playing on only one day of rest and are 5-1 at the betting window in their last six games coming off a win. The Nets, meanwhile, are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 0-7 against the number in their last seven games as a favorite and are winless at 0-5 ATS in their last five games as a home favorite.
