These two squads met earlier this year in Atlanta where Charlotte was able to prevail 123-110, while covering the spread as slight road favorites.
This time around Charlotte has again opened up as road faves with the line currently sitting at 5.5 points. Charlotte has gone 7-3 SU and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 matchups with Atlanta.
Charlotte hasn’t been in good form recently winning only four of their last 10 contests while going 5-5 ATS in that span.
Their most recent outing resulted in a hard-fought 115-119 loss to New Orleans where we saw Charlotte shoot 48% from the field.
In their last five games the offense has been efficient shooting 46.6% from the field, which is better than their season average of 44%. The defense has been a gaping hole as they are allowing 118 PPG in that span, which is off from their season average of 107 PPG.
Charlotte is being led by crafty Point Guard Kemba Walker and the rebounding-machine Dwight Howard. Walker is averaging 22.7 PPG and 5.8 APG, while Howard is averaging 16.2 PPG and is pulling boards down at a high rate averaging 12.1 RPG.
The schedule hasn’t been kind to Charlotte as they have faced a team with a winning record in five of their last seven contests, all games in which they lost. They’ll get a slight break against an Atlanta team they’ve have recently owned.
It’s been a meaningless season for Atlanta as they have one of the worst records in the league and have been in sluggish form recently only winning two of their last 10 matchups, while going 3-7 ATS in that span.
Atlanta’s most recent outing resulted in a loss at home to Oklahoma City 107-119, and failed to cover the spread.
Their form has been abysmal as they are shooting 44% from the field in their last five games, which is right around their season average. Also, in that span their defense has been pretty lax giving up 115.6 PPG, which is off from their season average of 108 PPG.
Carrying this Atlanta team has been Point Guard Dennis Schroder and Small Forward Taurean Prince. Schroder is leading the team in scoring averaging 19.1 PPG and 6.1 APG, while Prince is averaging 13.0 PPG and 4.8 RPG.
It is hard to trust a team that has lost four in a row, while also going 0-5 ATS in their last five contests. Being in the process of tanking, it is hard to find motivation for this team.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction: Charlotte continues their recent dominance over Atlanta
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hornets -5.5
Charlotte will be without Cody Zeller, while Jeremy Lamb is questionable. Even without these role players, Charlotte has the talent to handle their own against an Atlanta team that doesn’t have much to play for. Also they should be playing with a sense of urgency as now is the time for them to make a run if they want to sneak into playoffs.
