Celtics vs. Hornets Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Celtics get back on track at Hornets? 12/27/17

After losing three of their last four, will the Boston Celtics return to form tonight at the Charlotte Hornets? Tip-off is at 7PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Boston. According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, the Celtics are listed as a 2-point favorite on the spread line. The line also opened with Boston as a 2-point favorite, so any movement has been negated. The over-under sits at 207 after opening at 205.

Bet on tonight's NBA action

Who the Public Likes: Boston. Overwhelming, the public is betting 89 percent on the Celtics to cover the spread. 

Injury Report: Jaylen Brown is the most notable injury for Boston as he is doubtful with an abdominal injury. Marcus Morris is out with a knee injury and of course Gordon Hayward has been out since the opener with a broken ankle so nothing has changed there. Charlotte has a pair of forwards questionable in Marvin Williams (finger) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness).

Who the Trends Like: Boston is 4-0-1 ATS in the last five meetings. and 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings in Charlotte. The under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Charlotte.

Who We Like: This spread seems fishy. Quite often when it is fishy, it is not going to go the way you or the general public believe. As much as the Hornets have struggled this season, they are still 10-9 straight up at home. Brown being out is a major absence. If Charlotte can get major contributions from Dwight Howard in the interior along with wing players such as Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb to complement Kemba Walker, I like the hosts' chances. I'm rolling with the Hornets.
