Brooklyn Nets vs Charlotte Hornets. The NBA pick for this game is the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets won their past six away games and ten consecutive matches overall. Even on the road, when they are scoring over 113 points per game and making more than 50% of their shots, they are playing very effectively offensively. Additionally, they made more than 47% of their three-point attempts over their previous three games, demonstrating strong long-range shooting. Expect them to not provide the Hornets with many easy scoring opportunities since they are excellent on the offensive glass and will have a lot more chances to score against them. They also decreased their turnovers in their previous three games. Expect the Hornets to struggle to slow down the hot-shooting Nets since they aren’t very strong defensively and play just as poorly at home where they allow more than 114 points per game. Three of their previous five matches and five of their previous six at home ended in losses for the Hornets. They were effective offensively, but at home, where they are averaging fewer than 110 points per game, they were not as effective. Although they are very reckless with the ball, which will be an issue against the Nets, who average more than six steals per game, their rebounding was excellent and will offer the extra scoring opportunities that will lead to help them remain in the game. Anticipate Brooklyn to restrain Charlotte’s offense given that it held its previous three opponents to under 110 points per contest. Brooklyn is a good choice to cover the spread. The Brooklyn Nets will win to a predicted score of 123-115.
