The Kings are favored for the first time this season. The Hornets have had a lot of success when playing the Kings in recent years. During those games, the Hornets were able to turn to the likes of Kemba Walker. The Hornets will have to try and keep the trend going without Walker. Both teams have played a pretty tough schedule to open the season. While I think Buddy Hield and company will be able to get the job done and get their first win, this spread is to big in my mind. Final score prediction, Kings win but the Hornets cover 108-104.
