The 76ers are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-15 ATS in their last 22 Wednesday games. The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The 76ers continue to find ways to lose games and even with Embiid breathing some life into the franchise, Philly just isn't a good basketball team. Add in the fact the 76ers played yesterday and now has to travel, you have to give the heavy edge to the rested Hornets at home. This is a lot of chalk, but the 76ers are downright terrible. I wouldn't be surprised if the Charlotte Hornets win this contest in a blowout.
