BETTING TRENDS

Charlotte are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

Charlotte are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against Washington.

Charlotte are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Charlotte's last 5 games when playing on the road against Washington.

Washington are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Washington's last 6 games.

Washington are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Washington's last 10 games against Charlotte.

 

Prediction

The Hornets continue to lose games and are on a 4 game losing streak. They have an awful 8-23 record on the road and are still missing Oubre due to injury. The Wizards have struggled lately as they're dealing with injuries and it's uncertain if Beal will return for this game while Kuzma is expected to be out again as well so I think the Hornets can keep this game close enough to at least cover the spread.
