Hornets vs. Hawks Best Bets Wednesday 4/13/22




It may not be called the Playoffs but do not tell that to the Hawks and Hornets. The 8th seed and a chance to play the top-seeded Heat is on the line tonight in Atlanta, but it is just the first step. The two teams finished with identical records and split the season series, but Atlanta has the edge on the tiebreaker. Trae Young will be expected to carry a heavy workload tonight as the Hawks have a long hill to climb in getting back to the Eastern Conference Finals. They will take a win tonight. John Collins is out with a finger injury, but other than that the Hawks are healthy. Kevin Huerter and Bogdan Bogdanovic will try to keep up with the Hornets’ 3-point heavy offense.

LaMelo Ball leads a trio of Hornets players hovering at 20 points per game. The former Rookie of the Year shines in leading the Hornets attack, helped by Miles Bridges leading the team in scoring and Terry Rozier as the third main scorer. Charlotte will be without Gordon Hayward as he still deals with a foot injury, but there are no other key injuries for Charlotte. The loser of tonight’s game plays golf while the winner will take on the Cavaliers for the right to be the 8th seed.

Hawks -5: -115 (FanDuel)

Atlanta was fairly dominant at home despite finishing at the bottom of the play-in games. At 27-14, Atlanta had a better record at home than most teams above them in the standings, including Philadelphia and Toronto. The Hawks can downplay that all they want ahead of tonight, but it is the key factor in betting a side. The Hawks have enough star power in Young and shooters with Huerter, Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari. The Hornets can shoot the lights out or shoot themselves out of a game and will not be able to rely on Ball for the same level of production that Young will provide. Do not expect a blowout, as the Hornets earned the right to be here, but the home floor advantage for Atlanta will ultimately prove to be too much.

P.J. Washington Under 5.5 Rebounds: -143 (BetMGM)

The Hornets have switched up some late-game rotations towards the end of the regular season that might negatively impact P.J. Washington‘s stat line. Awesemo has a low projection for Washington on the glass, giving him just four boards tonight against the Hawks. OddsShopper has this down as a 78% xWin chance of hitting the play, combined with a 33% xROI. The juice is not terrible at -143, since the data would support playing this at an even higher number. Washington failed to hit six boards in two straight games and has only done so twice in his last five.

Danilo Gallinari Over 4.5 Rebounds: -135 (PointsBet)

The Hawks look to be in good shape on the boards tonight, according to both OddsShopper and Awesemo. Be it fading forwards like Washington on Charlotte or playing overs like here for Gallinari, it looks like Atlanta has the advantage. Awesemo projects 6.1 rebounds for Gallinari, who should see plenty of minutes and long rebounds from missed 3-pointers. OddsShopper loves this play at a 73% xWin chance of hitting, along with a 27% xROI on the prop.

Trae Young Over 31.5 Points: -104 (FanDuel)

This just makes the most sense when figuring out most game flows for tonight. Young is a monster on the court and can easily take over any basketball game, despite the result. That makes it harder to fade such a gifted scorer in the playoffs or play-in game. Awesemo projects 33.4 points for Young, which may even be a little light depending on how much early damage Young inflicts on the Hornets’ backcourt. OddsShopper has a 58% xWin chance of hitting, along with a 13% xROI on the play.
