The Detroit Pistons cant feel great after blowing a chance to upset the Heat, and back to back road games isn’t a fun start to the season. The Charlotte Hornets are coming off a nice opening win over the Hawks and their offense showed serious firepower. Will it continue? Who knows. But the Hornets enter this contest in better form, and being at home doesn’t hurt. The Piston’s lack of offensive pop could lead to a lot of losses. Give me the Hornets and the chalk.
