The Charlotte Hornets take the trip to "Roaracle" Arena tonight to battle the Golden State Warriors.
The Charlotte Hornets are just 4-5 on the season so far but will be coming into this game with a bit of confidence after snapping a two-game skid with a 103-95 win over the Suns last night. Kemba Walker led five players in double figures with 19 points, while Gary Neal and Al Jefferson added 14 points as the Hornets overcame an early 14-point deficit for their first road win of the season. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist missed the game with a foot injury, but Lance Stephenson and Marvin Williams were both able to tough it out and play through their injuries for the team.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have started the season 6-2 and will be breathing a sigh of relief after avoiding a third straight loss with a 107-99 win over the Nets on Thursday. Klay Thompson led the team with 25 points while Stephen Curry added 17 points, but the best player for the Warriors was actually Draymond Green who had a strong outing of 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in his new role in the starting lineup. Golden State have been one of the best teams in the league so far, averaging 104.8 points per game while allowing just 97.6.
In ATS trends, the Hornets are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games against a team with a winning home record and 20-43 ATS in their last 63 games playing on no days rest, while the Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a losing record and 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games overall.
Head to head, the Hornets are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Golden State.
I'm definitely leaning towards the Warriors to win and cover at home but a little wary of the big number here.
