Both of these teams are in the lower tier in the Eastern Conference. I am not sure there is room for both in the playoffs so these games, which are also in the division are going to go a long way to deciding who is in and who is not.
Miami definitely has more depth but Kemba Walker is going to be the best player on the court for either side. Should be a tight game throughout.
The Heat have won back to back games but lost just before that…it was a one pointer at home to Charlotte so perhaps there is some early revenge happening in this spot. I know that might be a little premature but the trends guys will sight it.
Miami is missing a key cog in James Johnson. I know he is not an All-Star but he gives them some toughness and is a versatile defensive player. Miami has depth but nobody really does what he does for them. He is more valuable than you think.
Hassan Whiteside is struggling with his scoring this season but all his other numbers are strong. He is putting up 12 rebounds per game and blocking close to three shots. Against Charlotte he could be a factor. Its not like they have good bigs.
Goran Dragic is having another nice season leading the team in scoring at 19ppg. He is a lot like Kemba Walker just with less dribbling and less swag. He is one of seven players averaging double figures in scoring on this deep team.
Miami is just 1-1 on the road this season. I like them in this spot as short dogs. If they win they are likely to cover the number too.
Charlotte is going to have to scratch and claw for everything this season. Walker is a nice player but the guys around him are not impressing me at all. Walker might have himself an MVP type season and it still might not be enough for this team to make the playoffs.
Miles Bridges was their top pick this season but I am not sure what kind of pro he is going to be. I am not a talent scout but the fact that he didn’t really get better as a sophomore might tell us how much he is willing to work on this game. Maybe.
The overall team numbers look better than a sub .500 team. The Hornets have been playing a lot of close games. Four of seven have been by two points or less. That shows some compete for sure under their new head coach. If they win their share maybe they have something.

Free Miami Heat vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
Small spread but I am not sure I can get behind the home team. I like Miami more coming into the season and still do.
This is one of those revenge spots per the opener but more than that I just think Miami is the better team and being on the road won’t be too rough.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat +4
Not sure which way this number goes but Miami is the side to play unless it gets silly. Kemba might go off but Miami gets the win.
