The Charlotte Hornets are struggling some to start the season, and things won’t get any easier for them at home tonight with the Nuggets coming to town. The NBA Odds for this one leave a lot of room for value, especially the total of 210.

Nuggets vs. Hornets

Even though the Hornets tend to play better defense at home, and even though they tend to forget how to score for long periods of time, tonight they have a great chance at scoring some points against the Denver Nuggets.

Neither team has really played well in their first three games, but if trends from last season hold with this Nuggets team, the over is a fine play on Wednesday night.

Last year the Nuggets were 26-15 cashing the over on the road, and they were an even better 20-9-1 overall in non-conference games. In non-conference road games, they were 10-5 cashing over the NBA Odds.

Late last season these two played to a 122-114 score in Charlotte, and while I don’t think it will be that extreme tonight, with the Hornets lacking most of their wing defenders to start the year, Gary Harris, Wilson Chandler, and probably Paul Millsap should all have big games.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to return tonight, but he is also not expected to play that many minutes. The Hornets can score against poor defenses and fast-paced teams, so even though the Nuggets aren’t playing that fast yet, Charlotte has a pace of 100.6 possessions per game. I feel like this one is going to be a bit higher scoring than the number suggests.
