The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hawks are 0-7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Charlotte, 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the home team is 12-4-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
The Atlanta Hawks are bad enough defensively to where they're going to lose ugly games to some good teams. The problem is I'm still on the fence with the Charlotte Hornets being even a slightly above average team, as this club was pegged as a lottery team before the season. I don't like laying big chalk with subpar teams. The Hawks have enough offensive firepower to hang around in this contest. I wouldn't touch this game personally, but give me the points if forced to pick.
