The Knicks are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The Hornets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Atlantic and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Hornets are starting to find their groove a bit and now return home where they should start finding some success. The Knicks have been hit or miss lately and I'm not sure I trust them on the end of a back-to-back on the road. I'll take the home team and the reasonable chalk here.
