Charlotte Hornets Player Stats
The 2020-21 Charlotte Hornets season ended in a loss in the first-ever NBA Play-In Game, but the season overall was one deserving of optimism. Led by rookie LaMelo Ball, the Hornets easily eclipsed their preseason win total of 26.5 set by DraftKings. There’s still room for improvement in the season to come, and Charlotte will look to push past their Eastern Conference rivals and into the postseason in 2021-22. It remains to be seen if the gambling market thinks they’re ready to make that step, but for all the key information on betting Hornets point spreads, over/unders, player props, and more, keep reading.
Charlotte Hornets Point Spreads
One of the staple bets in the NBA is a bet on the point spread, which is a bet on the margin of victory of the game. The margin is determined by the bookmakers and allows bettors to bet that a favored team will win by a certain amount or that the underdog will keep the game within a certain margin.
Here’s an example of what a Hornets spread looks like:
- Miami Heat (+2.5)
- Charlotte Hornets (-2.5)
In this example the Hornets are favorites, which is what the minus sign (-) next to their point spread means. The underdogs are denoted with a plus sign (+). Since the Hornets are favored by 2.5 points here, bets on them to cover spread would win only if Charlotte won by three points or more. Bets on the Heat would cash if Miami won the game or lost by just a point or two.
Charlotte Hornets Moneylines
Betting the point spread isn't the only option to back the Hornets to win: Betting on the moneyline is making straight-up bet on which team will win the game. This was where Hornets bettors made hay, as Charlotte made bettors 10 units on the moneyline over the course of the season.
Let's revisit our example from earlier for the moneyline odds:
- Miami Heat +135
- Charlotte Hornets -160
As before, the minus sign (-) means Charlotte is the favorite, and the plus sign (+) still denotes the underdog. The numbers are American odds, which translate bets in $100 increments. The Hornets are -160 favorites, so it would take a $160 bet to win $100 if Charlotte wins. The underdog Heat are +135, so a bet of $100 would net $135 if Miami prevailed.
Charlotte Hornets Over/Unders
If you want to bet on the game without worrying about picking a winner, an over/under bet -- also known as a total -- is a wager on the number of points the two teams will score. Bookmakers will set a number, and bettors wager on the over or under. If our earlier Heat-Hornets game had a total of 217, then the over would cash only if the combined score was 218 or more; the under would win if the two teams scored 216 points or fewer. On the occasion that the teams land right on the total, all wagers are graded as a push, and wagers are refunded.
Charlotte Hornets Props
Prop bets allow you to get in on the action without tying your wager to the performance of one or both teams. Props cover a wide range of bets on events throughout the game. Player props are bets on the box score a player ends with, like betting on LaMelo Ball over/under 7.5 assists, or if Gordon Hayward will record a double-double. But other prop bets exist as well, depending on your sportsbook. Make sure to read our sportsbook reviews to find the best book for you.
A futures bet is self-explanatory: It's a bet on something that will resolve at a time further in the future than the next game. Futures can be bet on teams or players. Team futures can vary from betting the Hornets to win their division, the Eastern Conference, or the NBA Finals -- or you can bet a season-long win total or if Charlotte will make the playoffs. Player futures can be season-long prop bets on that player's statistical output, or a bet on an award market, like betting LaMelo Ball to win MVP.
