Charlotte has lost six of its last seven games and now is heading into Boston, which has won six straight home games. The NBA odds of only -5 on Boston with the potential of Avery Bradley being back are too good to pass up.

The Hornets have been in a nosedive lately ,losing six of their last seven games SU. On the other side of this one, the Celtics have been one of the better teams in the league over the last month. Boston is a -5 favorite in the NBA odds and it would not surprise me to see them go up even more before this one tips off.

Nicolas Batum was out for part of the Hornets’ recent stretch of losses, but for the Celtics Avery Bradley has been out over the last four games and he might be making his return. If that happens, it gives the Celtics another strong option on both ends of the court and should make them even more than a 5-point winner. With that in mind, lay the points with Boston at home.
