Hornets vs. Hawks Prediction & Pick
The backcourt duo of Trae Young and Dejounte Murray has made the Hawks' offense one to watch out for this season. Each player is putting up over 21.0 points per game as Atlanta ranks eighth in scoring (116.3 PPG). It also checks in seventh in shooting percentage during away games (48.2%).
That does not bode well for a Charlotte squad that ranks 25th in defensive efficiency and is allowing 116.6 points per home game (No. 26 in NBA). With the Hornets ranking dead last in three-point shooting percentage (32.0%), it's hard to see them keeping up on the scoreboard in this showdown.
Charlotte has lost 12 of its last 15 home games, so back Atlanta to win at the Spectrum Center.
Final Score Prediction: Hornets: 115 | Hawks: 125
Hornets vs. Hawks Best Bet
The Hawks are being underestimated a bit on Monday night. While the team's injury report is lengthy, Trae Young is listed as probable with a shoulder issue. He is expected to play for an Atlanta team that is 5-2 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games overall and 6-3 ATS in its last nine away games.
Charlotte is a disappointing 1-6 ATS during their seven-game losing streak with an average scoring margin of -10.9. It also 0-8 ATS in their last eight games played in February. The Hornets are not finding any success on either end of the court, which makes fading them the best move on Monday.
Bet: Atlanta Hawks -5.5 (-110)
