Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Friday afternoon, 77 percent of public bets are being played on Golden State.

Injury Report: Hornets center Cody Zeller had surgery on his left knee and will be sidelined until at least late January. Steph Curry will not rejoin the Warriors on the court tonight, but is expected to play Saturday versus Memphis. Omri Casspi is out tonight with a sprained ankle.

Who the Trends Like: Charlotte is 1-3-1 ATS in the last five meetings. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Golden State. Charlotte is 5-2-1 ATS in its last eight meetings in Golden State.

Who We Like: The Hornets are catching a major break with Curry not playing until tomorrow night. With that said, the Warriors are still loaded with talent and Kevin Durant has been routinely putting together huge stat lines with Curry out. The X-Factor tonight is Charlotte point guard Kemba Walker, who often seems to rise to the level of the oppnent and is always capable of a huge outing. After a rough stretch, Walker seems to have righted his ship and could play a huge factor in helping the Hornets stay within the number tonight. The Hornets have had good success at the Oracle in recent years.
