Both of these teams are coming off a back to back and with the Hornets cashing the over in every game this season on no rest, it’s a great over play in the NBA Odds. The Hawks have allowed a ton of points lately, so add the over to your NBA Picks.

Charlotte Hornets vs Atlanta Hawks

Both of these teams are coming off games on Friday night and at least for the Hornets this season, that means this game might get ugly. However, what’s keeping me from the spread on this game is the fact that Kemba Walker missed last night’s game, but is expected back for Saturday.

A Rested Kemba Walker against a tired Hawks defense is not goo, especially considering the Hawks have allowed 131 and 121 points in their last two games. Both of these teams are coming from the northern side of the country, with Atlanta coming back from a game in Toronto.

This is all going to affect the defense in this game. These two teams are playing at top 12 paces already and tired defenses means a ton of points in this one. The Hawks have already been on a rich scoring streak, while the Hornets have cashed the over in all four of their games on no rest this season. In those games, the Hornets are allowing nearly 113 points per game. With the Hawks’ defense allowing 112 points per in their last five, look for the over in this one.
