The over is 5-2-1 in Hornets last 8 overall. The under is 5-2 in Heat last 7 overall. The Hornets are 3-8-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Charlotte Hornets are a young team and you're never quite sure which version is going to show up, so they're a tough team to handicap. The Miami Heat are finally getting healthy for the first time all season, so a lot of their numbers you can kind of throw out the window a bit. With Butler and others finally back in the mix, the Heat have a chance to turn things around and put a nice run together. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Heat here.
