Hornets vs. Wizards Prediction and Pick
Despite all the talk this season being about the drop in scoring, the Hornets are one of the few outperforming oddsmakers expectations, going over in 10 of 18 games this season.
James Borrego's club plays at the third fastest pace in the league, leading to the 10th best offensive rating this season. However, this goes against them on the defensive end, where the team is in the bottom third in points allowed per 100 possessions.
These two played in Charlotte on November 17 in a low scoring affair, 97-87 in favor of Charlotte. However, that game may have been a bit of an outlier considering the Wiz hit on just eight of their 42 3-point shots.
That total closed at 220.5, and I believe this number is an overreaction to the low scoring game last week. I'll jump on this over given the Hornets high scoring nature and some positive shooting regression.
PICK: OVER 216.5
