1. Charlotte -11
I like the direction that James Borrego has Charlotte headed defensively now... They never had a problem with their offense Charlotte would score 130 points in a game but give up 132...
Charlotte has held their opponents to an average of 104ppg last 4 games... 3 of those games were against elite competition.
Charlotte is 12-5 SU and 14-3 Ats at home.
Charlotte is 20-8 ATS in their last 28 home games.
Charlotte is 13-3 ATS in their last 16 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400
Charlotte is 39-13-1 ATS in their last 53 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400
Charlotte dominates bad teams.
Orlando is 5-20 SU and 15-10 Ats on the road.
Orlando is 8-18 ATS in their last 26 games following a ATS win.
Orlando is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings in Charlotte.
My only concerns are:
1. Let down spot for Charlotte...They just beat the defending NBA champions twice and finally beat Philly after losing to them over 100 times in a row...lol and they play The Knicks and Boston next...
2. Orlando is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games.
I believe Charlotte is trying to become an above average defensive team, and if this Charlotte team can stay healthy and play consistent tough defense night in and night out with how explosive they are offensively who knows how far this team can go...
Final score 123-104 Charlotte Covers!!!
Let's have a winning evening everybody!!!
