The Hornets have become one of the more undervalued teams in the NBA, but tonight the sportsbooks have their NBA Odds set pretty well as -1 ½ favorites. With their strong defense and with a player like Kemba Walker, the Hornets have a great chance of cashing us a winning ticket for backing them with our NBA Picks.

Hornets vs. Wolves

The Hornets have been one of the better Eastern Conference teams to start the season. Their mix of a strong defense with multiple options on offense makes this team a very tough game. Even on the road where they are a bit weaker, this team has a nice chance to get a win tonight.

The NBA Odds have them as a -1 ½ favorite, with a total anywhere between 204 and 207. However, with how badly the Wolves’ defense has looked this season and with how well the Hornets are playing on defense, as long as Charlotte slows down Andrew Wiggins or Karl-Anthony Towns, they are going to win this game.

Charlotte ranks second in both free throws per field goal attempt allowed and defensive rebounding rate this season and they are holding teams they face to an effective field goal percentage of just 48.7 percent.

As long as the Hornets slow down the young studs in Minnesota and if Kemba Walker is the best player on the floor, they will win this one on the road here.
