NBA Odds: Hornets vs. Jazz
|Time | Channel||9 p.m. ET | SportsNet RM|
The Utah Jazz are currently one of the hottest teams in the NBA, having won nine of their last 10 games entering Monday night’s matchup with the Charlotte Hornets. Utah has wins over the Celtics, Bucks, 76ers and Clippers during that stretch.
The Charlotte Hornets are not a dominant force like the Jazz, but they have been playing some solid basketball of late, winning three of their last five games. Entering Monday night, the Hornets are coming off of a nail-biting two-point win over the Steph Curry-less Warriors in which the under hit by a whopping 32.5 points.
Charlotte will be facing a fully healthy Jazz squad, so there won’t be a dramatic points drop-off like in Saturday’s Warriors vs. Hornets game. That being said, both teams possess top-20 defenses — top-3 in Utah’s case — and our PRO Report suggests that sharps see a similar result to the Warriors-Hornets matchup, with the under being the better play on Monday night.
