NBA Odds: Kings vs. Hornets
|Time | Channel||7 p.m. ET | NBCS-CA|
The Sacramento Kings head to Charlotte to take on the Hornets for the second time this season. Sacramento is trending downwards, losing three of its past five games heading into Monday night.
The Hornets are heading in the opposite direction as winners of four of their last five games, looking for their fourth straight win on Monday. Rookie of the Year frontrunner LaMelo Ball has been excellent since becoming a starter and has the Hornets playing a better brand of basketball.
In the first matchup between the Hornets and Kings on Feb. 28, Ball had 24 points and 12 assists, while forward PJ Washington went off for a career-high 42 points. The Hornets pulled out a narrow one-point win in that matchup.
Our PRO Report suggests that sharp bettors are expecting the Hornets to pull off the season sweep of the Kings with a comfortable win on Monday evening. Let’s take a look.
