After struggling defensively against Steph Curry and Draymond Green, the Hornets (15-17) meet the Kings (13-20) at the midway point of the road trip, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

Sacramento not only has the worst defensive rating in the league, they’re on pace for the worst defensive rating in league history. Put differently, when offenses play the Kings, they become roughly equivalent of the Brooklyn Nets because of how poor Sacramento’s defense is.

  • Point spread: Hornets +1.5

  • Moneyline: Hornets -110 / Kings -110

  • Over-under: 239.5

Advice and prediction

At first glimpse, the over/under of 239.5 seems eye-popping but, as noted, the Kings defense is all-time bad right now. That it is essentially a pick-em makes it an interesting choice, too. Charlotte is playing well enough on this road trip that it makes sense to take Hornets +1.5.

Prediction: Charlotte 120, Sacramento 118
