Washington Wizards & Charlotte Hornets OVER 229 Points (-110)
For my second bet of the night, I’m looking at a point total on the East Coast. The Washington Wizards and Charlotte Hornets have not been great this season, as they both sit outside the playoff picture and have both lost four of their last five games. With that being said, these teams can not only score points, but they give up a ton of them. In fact, the Wizards are the third-highest scoring team in the NBA right now, putting up 118.2 points per game. On the flip side, they are allowing the most points (122.5) in the NBA, as well. The Hornets also allow the tenth-most points per game at 113.1.
From a betting perspective, six of the last nine head-to-head matchups between these teams have finished OVER the total during the last three seasons. They are both among the best OVER teams in the league, with the Wizards ranking fourth at 57.1% and the Hornets ranking tenth at 52%. Furthermore, Washington has finished OVER in 54.5% of their road games this season. I’m all over the over tonight at 229 points in North Carolina.
