The Hornets are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Wizards are 24-7 ATS in their last 31 games playing on 0 days rest and 5-22-1 ATS in their last 28 Tuesday games. The under is 5-1 in Hornets last 6 overall. The over is 8-3 in Wizards last 11 Tuesday games. The Hornets are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Washington.
The Charlotte Hornets have the rest advantage here, but they're not nearly as attractive with the loss of LaMelo Ball and we're starting to see signs of this team struggling to keep up. The Washington Wizards got a much needed win last night against the Pacers and Westbrook played his best game of the season, which could be the shot in the arm this club needed. The home team has won eight of the last nine meetings between the Wizards and Hornets. I'll take the free bucket in this toss up contest.
