The Hornets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Pistons are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 21-8 in Hornets last 29 overall. The under is 7-3-1 in Pistons last 11 overall. The Hornets are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Detroit and 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Charlotte Hornets are as healthy as they've been in a long time and they need to keep winning to improve their playoff odds. The Detroit Pistons are piling up the losses left and right and playing on the end of a back to back won't help matters. The Pistons just lost to a G League roster last night in the Magic. The Hornets win by an average of 5.3 points in the favorite role. Only option here for me is to lay the points with the Hornets.
