The Charlotte Hornets continue on the road and will visit the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden on Friday night. These teams already faced each other three times so far this season and the Celtics have absolutely dominated the Hornets beating them by double digits the 3 times.

Charlotte are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
Charlotte are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games when playing on the road against Boston.
Boston are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Boston's last 10 games.
Boston are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Boston's last 6 games against Charlotte.
The Hornets continue to lose games and are on a 5 game losing streak. They have an awful 8-24 record on the road and are still missing Oubre due to injury. The Celtics have won 4 of their last 5 games and have a great record at home but they'll be missing Jaylen Brown after a face injury in the last game and it's uncertain if Tatum will be availablewith Marcus Smart still out. It's hard to trust the Hornets but these are a lot of points to cover for the Celtics without their best shooters. Give me the Hornets with the points.
PICK: Hornets +11 (-110)
