Why bet on the Golden State Warriors?

I know what you’re thinking, that there is no way the Warriors lose against the Hornets but look closely, Charlotte is averaging 100.40 points against the Dubs and the Warriors defense looks more vulnerable than ever, at least since Steve Kerr took command of the team in 2014.Golden State is on a winning streak (4) but they already lost against two Eastern Conference teams (Detroit Pistons & Boston Celtics). Nevertheless, the reigning champs are playing better on the road, they just need to avoid another Kevin Durant’s ejection (3 in 18 games).“I got to be more focused, I got to be more poised. Can’t let anybody take me off my game. I’ve been in the league too long,” Durantula said.Another concern is that Stephen Curry may have to sit this one out after he twisted his ankle during the last minutes of their matchup against the Pelicans, but with or without the little chef, Golden State should be able to compete and win.The Rockets are in command of the West, but the Warriors lead the League in Points per Game (118.5), Assists per Game (31.1), Blocks per Game (8.3), Field Goal Percentage (51.4) and Three-Point Percentage (40.3), several solid reasons to consider them as your NBA Betting Pick for this one.

Why Bet on the Charlotte Hornets?

The things may not be going the way Michael Jordan wants, but the Hornets are improving little by little, at least they finished with a losing streak (5 games) by defeating a good Orlando Magic team. The Hornets already got the W against good Western Conference teams such as the Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Clippers.Charlotte looks like a totally different team when they play at home (8-3), and the addition of Dwight Howard is starting to pay off as the team is third around the League in Rebounds per Game (46.9), a very useful weapon against a Warriors team that’s very good on second opportunities.Despite getting better in the last couple of weeks, the Hornets shouldn't be your NBA Betting Pick.Sometimes we forget that this roster includes Kemba Walker, Nicolas Batum, Michael Carter-Williams, Frank Kaminsky, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, but as corny as may sound, they need to believe.Right now, the Hornets are off the playoffs, but Washington stands at the last spot with a 12-11 record and there is a lot of basketball left, so it’s no time to panic.
