Pacer on Hornets picks and predictions
Hornets 116, Pacers 110
Give me that HORNETS (-140) home to take out the Pacers. with G LaMelo ball Back in the lineup for Charlotte, I think the Hornets should take care of business in front of a home crowd.
against the spread
HORNETS -2.5 (-112) is a tempting bet because all we need for Charlotte to cover the spread is for the Hornets to win with at least a 3-pointer. There’s a chance Haliburton will pause for Indiana, which could shift the spread even more in Charlotte’s favor.
The Pacers are 3-12 ATS in the last 15 away meetings against the Hornets and 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
As much as I want to take over the over in this game, BELOW 233.5 (-115) Is the side I’ll take If Haliburton is out or restricted Wednesday, the Pacers could be without their top scorer and playmaker.
The Under is 5-0-1 in the last 6 games in which the Hornets have faced a losing team.
