This is an ideal scheduling spot for the Bobcats who are off a pair of beat-downs.  Cash Charlotte minus the three points tonight when they host the Atlanta Hawks.

The Bobcats host the Atlanta Hawks in a Southeast Division battle in Charlotte this evening in an ideal scheduling spot.

That occurs with Atlanta off an 8-point upset road win while the Bobcats enter off back-to-back double-digit losses.

The Hawks got the better of the Timberwolves in Minnesota on Wednesday, taking a 94-86 win despite missing All-Star guard Joe Johnson who was out with the flu.  Marvin Williams netted 23 points and yanked down 10 boards for Atlanta. Charlotte meanwhile limps into the game off a 1-4 road trip, dropping their last two by 11 at Denver and 19 at Utah.

With Charlotte spotless (7-0 ATS) in division play this season and 7-1 ATS as a host in this series, look for the Bobcats to avenge a pair of losses suffered earlier this season to the Hawks.

Free Pick: Bobcats -3 (-110)
