The Hornets have dominated this series of late winning 7 of the last 10 games. Gamblers that bet on basketball will be looking to take New Orleans in this game.
Basketball betting trends do not favor Minnesota in this game. The situation also does not favor the T’Wolves in Basketball betting. They are in the 2nd game of a three-game road trip and the second half of a back-to-back as they played at San Antonio last night.
The Hornets have covered the basketball odds in 7 of the last 10 games against Minnesota. At home the Hornets have won three of the last five games between the two teams and they are 3-2 against the basketball odds. The teams have met twice this season with each team winning and covering the basketball betting pointspread at home. Fans who bet on basketball remember that the teams met last month in New Orleans and the Hornets won 101-07 in a game that Chris Paul missed due to injury. Paul is back and the Hornets will be a much bigger basketball betting favorite than they were last month.
Minnesota has been a much better team versus the basketball betting pointspread on the road than at home. On the road the Timberwolves have been a moneymaker for venturers who bet on basketball. That might change without leading scorer Al Jefferson though.
New Orleans has been nothing special at home this season versus the basketball betting pointspread. They just don’t have a powerful offense that blows teams out and that can be a problem when they are laying big basketball betting numbers at home. The Hornets play solid defense though and that usually translates into wins.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting total. At New Orleans though, three of the last five have gone under the basketball betting number.
