The Hornets are in no way a good team, but with the Lakers tanking this could be an excellent opportunity to make some money on both these teams. With a lower total, look for the over to be the play tonight.

Hornets vs. Lakers

 

The Lakers are another team I full tank mode and in their last five games they have allowed over 115 points per game. Even though three of the five games were on the road, they still gave up 119 points to the Spurs two nights ago and tonight against the Hornets they should be good to allow 110-plus.

In their last five games against the East, the Lakers are allowing over 114 points per game and against the West, the Hornets haven’t been much better. Charlotte is 13-10 cashing the over against the West this season and on the road against the West they are 7-4 cashing the over when playing on the road against the Western Conference.

The Hornets haven’t been very good at cashing the over against poor defensive teams that play up in pace. However, I think the combination of being on a long road trip and going against a tanking team will be all they need. Their defense doesn’t shine as much on the road as it does at home, so look for a final score of around 113-108.
