Can the Charlotte Hornets complete an upset of the Miami Heat tonight when they host them at 8PM ET in Game 6 of their series?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Charlotte is favored at home tonight, as the Hornets are getting odds of -2 points against the Heat. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 190.5. Charlotte has a 3-2 lead in the series.
Charlotte is 51-36 on the season, 32-11 at home and 45-41-1 against the spread. Miami is 50-37 overall, 20-23 on the road and 45-41-1 against the spread. The Hornets have rattled off three straight victories in this series, including a 90-88 win at Miami on Wednesday. That was the lone road win in the series. The Hornets have covered the spread in all three wins as well.
Miami struggled shooting in the two games at Charlotte and those offensive struggles carried over into Game 5 when the Heat went 34 of 81 from the floor. Charlotte’s defensive effort continues to pose problems for the Heat and we expect that to continue in Game 6. The Heat are just 1-8 against the spread in their last 9 road games. Look for that to be 1-9 after tonight.
