Here's three of the best prop bets for the Bulls-Hornets game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Bulls vs Hornets Player Props

1. Zach LaVine - Points + Assists: Over 30.5 (-108)

Both the Bulls and Hornets are in the bottom third of the league in defensive efficiency, and the Hornets play at the fastest pace in the league. Charlotte is also down a few players, and this match-up offers plenty shooting and scoring for the Bulls' leaders DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine. Projections make LaVine a better bet with five fewer combo points and assists, even though DeRozan has poured in 28 points or more in five straight games.

2. PJ Washington - Rebounds: Under 7.5 (-132)

The Hornets have lost five games in a row, and their losing streak at home is now at four including three straight since Feb. 4. Washington's minutes could take a hit in this match-up with more running the floor and pace. If so, this will be a very high number to attain for a player who averages 5.4 rebounds and has failed to get at least 8 rebounds in 11 of his past 13 games.

3. LaMelo Ball - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (+138)

Neither of these teams defend the perimeter well, ranking in the bottom quartile of the league. The Bulls have allowed better than 43% shooting from long range over their last three games. Plenty of pace and 3-point shots by the Hornets high-volume shooters with LaMelo offering a good plus price and able to sink a few over his brother Lonzo.
