Charlotte Hornets To WIN (+166) vs. Phoenix Suns
And for my underdog bet of the day, I am taking the Charlotte Hornets to upset the Suns at home tonight. Remember when the Phoenix Suns were the surprise of the league a few weeks ago. They started hot, but then things started to fall apart. First, Ricky Rubio went down for a bit. Then, they lost Deandre Ayton for a large chunk of the season due to suspension. Now, they are just 8-10, having lost eight of their last 11 games overall. In fact, they’ve lost six of seven and are currently riding a three-game losing streak. On the other side, the Hornets have won two of their last three, despite coming off an awful 41-point blowout loss to the first place Bucks.
With that being said, Charlotte is 4-0 straight-up against the Suns over the last three seasons. The Hornets are also 4-5 at home this season, so they’ve have more success at home than on the road. Plus, Phoenix could be without Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson, Aron Baynes and Cheick Diallo for tonight’s game, while Charlotte is fully healthy. If you’re looking for an underdog bet to pad your pockets, then consider taking the +166 odds in this intriguing matchup.
