TRENDS

CHARLOTTE:

Over is 9-0 in Hornets last 9 games as a road underdog.

Over is 6-0 in Hornets last 6 games playing on 1 days rest.

Over is 6-0 in Hornets last 6 road games.

Hornets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up loss.

SACRAMENTO:

Over is 5-0 in Kings last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record..

Kings are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest.

Kings are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Kings are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games.

HEAD – 2 – HEAD:

Hornets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento.

Hornets are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

Over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.

BETTING ANALYSIS:

The numbers are screaming to take the over in this match-up. An over bet is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams and I see that trend continuing even at a lofty 236.5 points. During the team’s recent 9-game losing streak, the Kings gave up the over in all except one match-up and allowed at least 118 points to every team. The Kings are a bad defense, period. Missing their best perimeter defender and secondary ballhandler in Tyrese Haliburton won’t do the Kings any help. I expect the Hornets to provide plenty for their highlight reel tonight.

It takes two to tango thought if you want to hit the over, and Sacramento is the perfect dancing partner. 22 of 33 of the Sacramento’s games have hit the over, tied for third highest in the league.

OVER 236.5
