Charlotte Hornets vs. Sacramento Kings

NBA Basketball: Saturday January 12th 2019 10:00 PM EST TIME

The last game on the NBA slate for the Sacramento Kings as they host the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday night. Both teams are looking for new hope in the 2019 year.

Free Falling Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets are looking to get back on track on Saturday as they head into this game with a recent loss. The Hornets were not able to get the win against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday as they will also be playing this game on no rest as they take on the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night. With no rest and taking on a Kings team that is rolling at home this season, this could be a tough challenge for the Hornets. Especially with the recent news of Hornets star Kemba Walker most likely deciding to test the market this summer. The Hornets come into this game with an overall record of 19-21 with losing three of the past four games.

Speaking of Kemba Walker, he is one of the main reasons why the Hornets are one of the most dangerous teams shooting the ball. Charlotte comes into this game with scoring an average of 112.9 points per game which is 9th in the league. On the flip side, their defense is going to need some work as they are allowing 112.1 points per game which is 21st in the league.

Turning The Corner

The Sacramento Kings might have some new found life for the franchise as they are back to .500 winning percentage for the first time in quite some time. The Kings come into this game with winning two of the past three games with huge wins against the Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic. Their recent success against these winnable teams is good for the team as they are still struggling against the top teams in the league. The Kings were recently on a four game losing streak before they have had this success. That losing streak consisted of losses against the Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors, and Portland Trail Blazers. Can the Kings keep up their recent home stand?

Just like the Charlotte Hornets, the Sacramento Kings have loads of young talent that can shot the ball well and often. The Kings enter this game with scoring an average of 114.9 points per game which is 5th in the league. On the flip side, their defense is one of the worst in the league with allowing 116 points per game which is 28th in the league.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I’ve been riding this recent Kings success for awhile as it has been easy wins against the Pistons and Magic. I’m going to make it three in a row for the Kings as they get another huge win against the Hornets as Kemba Walker has an off day on Saturday.

Prediction: KINGS ATS

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This should be a cake walk right? Two of the best offenses in the league, along with two of the worst defenses in the league. That only leads to one solution and that is a high scoring game. With that being said, the Over is 6-0 in Hornets last 6 vs. NBA Pacific as well as 9-0 in Hornets last 9 road games.

Prediction: OVER
