Why The Hornets Could Cover The Spread/Win

The Hornets should be able to put up some points, especially with a healthy lineup. The Jazz allow the fifth-most points per game at over 120.0 points per game. The Hornets have already scored 122 points on the Jazz once this season. They did lose that game, but when the Hornets score over 120 points this season, the Hornets are 7-2. If the Hornets can put up some points, they will cover this spread.

On their four-game losing streak, the Jazz have allowed 120.3 points per game. They have not played well on the defensive end of the court, and the Hornets need to take advantage of that. Charlotte does not need to win this game, but scoring on the Jazz will help them keep the game within 10 points.

Why The Jazz Could Cover The Spread/Win

The Jazz do not play good defense, and that is why they are under .500. However, the Hornets are just as bad at defense. Charlotte allows 119.4 points per game, and teams shoot over 50.0 percent against them this season. The Jazz should be able to put up another big offensive game on them. With Markannen, and Sexton, the Jazz are a solid team on the offense. If they can have another big game offensively, they will cover the spread.

When the Jazz score 125+ points this season, they are 12-5. 125 points is a lot to score, but this is very possible against the Hornets. Charlotte is not a good team this season, even with their win streak. The Jazz should be able to have a big game and cover the spread.

Final Hornets-Jazz Prediction & Pick

This is going to be a high-scoring game. Neither team plays great defense, so scoring should be plentiful. I am going to take the Hornets to cover this spread as 10-point underdogs.
