Brooklyn Nets vs. Charlotte Hornets Predictions and Picks
Two games into the season, and the Nets are already making mincemeat out of their opponents. They opened the season with a 26-point win over the Golden State Warriors, then went on the road and handed the Boston Celtics a 28-point drubbing. This is starting to look like the Kevin Durant revenge tour, and the rest of the league better take notice. Brooklyn is currently ranked third in offensive efficiency (1.157), and they boast one of the deepest benches in the league with 46 points per game.
I downgraded Charlotte a smidge in my power rankings after they opened the season with a road loss against a young Cavaliers team. They then followed up that performance with a loss to the Thunder at home. Hornets fans might want to avoid looking at the box score after tonight’s game because this one’s a real step up in class with the Nets coming to town. The Nets also have the rest advantage given that they played on Christmas Day while the Hornets will be on a back-to-back after playing yesterday. This line is already on the move, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets to 10.
This one’s a no-brainer!
Lay the points with the better, talented team on the road.
