Why Bet on the 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers were not able to pull the unthinkable Sunday night over the Golden State Warriors. No surprise, as the 76ers were the biggest underdog in recent NBA history, at +22. The 76ers have dropped 8 straight games, with their last win coming over the Brooklyn Nets. The 76ers are without their top big man, and leading scorer Jahlil Okafor. Okafor is likely to win the Rookie of the Year award. The 76ers are dead last in the National Basketball Association in offense and 28th out of 30 in defense.

Why Bet on the Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets have won 7 out of their last 10 games. The Hornets last at home to the Nuggets, and on the road at Detroit most recently. The Hornets are led by their guard Kemba Walker, who is scoring 21 points per game. Nicolas Batum, in his first season with the Hornets is the top assist man, at 5.7 per game. The Hornets as a team are scoring 103.2 points per game, while the defense is allowing 100.8. Charlotte won 43 two seasons ago, and 33 last year. The Hornets need 2 wins in their final 9 games to surpass both those totals.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

What a blowout this could be. The Philadelphia 76ers need just one win to get to 10 on the season, and they may not reach it. The 76ers are just bad, and are just looking to wrap up the season. The Charlotte Hornets have been one of the best teams in the NBA in the last couple weeks. Don’t be surprised if the Hornets win a round in the postseason. In this one, it will be all Charlotte. The bet for this game is going to bet the Charlotte Hornets -7 over the Philadelphia 76ers. Our final score guess: Charlotte 108 and Philadelphia 89.
