The basketball betting trends favor the Hornets but just barely in this Monday night matchup. Bet on basketball scheduling shows that the Hornets are beginning a four-game road trip on Monday while the Hawks are playing the second game of a season-high seven game homestand. The Hornets have won 6 of the last 10 games against Atlanta although they are just 5-5 against the basketball odds. The Hornets have won three of the last five games at Atlanta as bet on basketball numbers show. The teams met earlier this season in New Orleans and the Hawks upset the Hawks, winning 87-79 as 8.5 point basketball betting underdogs.
The Hornets have not been a very good team on the road this season for gamblers who bet on basketball. New Orleans has been far better at home than on the road against the bet on basketball number. Part of the problem for the Hornets on the road is that they don’t score enough points. They rank in the bottom third of the league in overall scoring as bet on basketball stats show. Chris Paul is a superstar guard and a great player but his scoring average is barely over 20 points per game as bet on basketball numbers indicate.
The Hawks have been about a .500 team this season against the bet on basketball pointspread at home. Joe Johnson continues to lead them in scoring as bet on basketball statistics show. The Hawks have a similar problem to the Hornets in that they don’t score a ton of points. They are just outside of the Top 10 on defense though as bet on basketball information indicates and usually stay in most games. Against the Hornets though they could struggle to score since New Orleans is in the Top 5 in the league in defense as basketball betting stats show.
The over/under is 5-5 versus the bet on basketball pointspread in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. At Atlanta, the under has been a strong trend with four of the last five meetings going under the basketball odds.
