Tonight we got great game, between two teams that want to reach postseason in the improving East.
Charlotte Hornets – Washington Wizards
Last year teams met four times. Wizards won twice, at home after OT, by 3 points, in Charlotte by 26 points and lost twice as well. At home by 4 points and on the road by 7 points. Overall, we can see that the games were pretty close, except one, when Charlotte simply collapsed.
Wizards with and without Beal are two different teams. With him, last season, Wizards went 43 – 30 SU. Without him, 3 – 6 SU. ATS record was even worse with 1 – 8 ATS without him.
Since Beal’s return, they won in Detroit and lost last night at home, to Indiana, but Pacers went nuts behind three point line, scoring 19 three pointers in 73% (!!!). Pacers lead the league in three point percentage, while Charlotte ranked only 11th, but it’s more than that. Hornets weak spot is three pointers, so I doubt we will see such shooting tonight.
On top of that, Batum, one of Hornets best players, probably best defender on the team and one of the better three point shooters, questionable tonight.
I like Wizards even if he plays, but if he sits this one out, Hornets will really struggle I believe.
Wizards are the better team and can close the gap from Hornets by winning tonight. Wall and Beal one of the better back court duos in the East and were pretty annoyed with last night’s loss.
Wizards should win this one, but 3 points cushion helps a bit and adds confidence to the bet, especially given the history between the teams.
