Charlotte Hornets Odds, Betting Guide & Picks for 2019-20
  • URL Copied!

The decision not to give Kemba Walker to a max contract plummeted this team into a full rebuild. They have scarce young talent and a couple ugly, ugly contracts that will be difficult to move. There’s a good chance the Hornets enter next year’s Lottery with the league’s worst record.

Here are the key odds available and how you should bet them:

Hornets Win-Total Betting

The Line: 23.5 with 888sport

The Hornets failed to top 40 wins in any of three of Walker’s last three seasons. The Hornets were 0-4 in games he didn’t play the last three seasons. A combination of an awful roster and the potential for tanking down the stretch means this team will struggle to get to 20 wins.

The Bet: The under feels like the right play for such a mess of a franchise.

Hornets Southeast Division Odds

The Line: +12000 with DraftKings

The Magic, Heat and even Hawks are leaps and bounds ahead of the Hornets, who have never won a division title. They certainly won’t do it with Walker out of the picture.

The Bet: Avoid this bet.

Hornets Eastern Conference Odds

The Line: +16000 with FanDuel

It’s tough to see a best-case scenario for this roster in which they even sniff the postseason, so the thought of them winning the East is non-existent. They’re bound for the Lottery for the forseeable future.

The Bet: Avoid these odds.

Hornets NBA Title Odds

The Line: +50000 with 888sport

Failing to make the postseason with an All-NBA guard in Walker was bad enough, and now it’s about to get worse. The Hornets have the worst title odds in the NBA for a reason.

The Bet: Avoid these long odds. Michael Jordan may be the owner, but his championship prowess only goes so far.

Best Hornets Player Prop Bets

The Line: Miles Bridges Most Improved Player +3300 with PointsBet

The one glimmer of hope in Charlotte is Miles Bridges, who averaged 12.8 points on 52% shooting (and 38.6% from deep) over the Hornets’ final 11 games.

The Bet: He’s in line for a major role with Walker out of the picture, and he should post some significant numbers that could have him in the conversation for this award.
