How to Bet Hornets vs. Knicks Tonight: Best NBA Bets & Player Props 1/17/22




The Knicks are looking for their fourth straight win, as things are also heating back up for Julius Randle. The quest to return to .500 for New York coincided with Randle’s play picking up. The guard play has rotated due to injury and COVID but has seen some sharp play from Evan Fournier and R.J. Barrett. It will not be easy, as Charlotte comes to town looking to bounce back from an ugly loss to the Magic, one that snapped a four-game win streak. Kelly Oubre Jr. will not return from COVID for this game, the Hornets leader in 3-point attempts. They have both Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward, leading the offensive charge during their win streak. If Charlotte treats New York like a playoff-bound team, the Hornets should roll. The Knicks are expected to be without Kemba Walker, Nerlens Noel and recent addition Cam Reddish.

Hornets +0.5 First Quarter Spread (-110, BetMGM)

Bettors can use multiple free sorting tools on OddsShopper, including getting the best number on first-quarter spreads. Charlotte is healthy and only missing Oubre, but it has multiple shooters who will be more than happy to pick up the slack. The Knicks are getting a little too comfortable and are prime for a letdown, at least early in the game. However, the Hornets’ burst to open the game may not be sustainable, so play the first quarter and not the first half. The Knicks saw a combined 50 points from Randle and Barrett in their last game and should ultimately win this game. The Knicks are just 7-15 against the spread in the first quarter and are taking on a Hornets team that should be shot out of a cannon.

R.J. Barrett Under 20.5 Points (-120, FanDuel)

It looks like both OddsShopper and Awesemo are projecting a sharp dip in scoring for Barrett today. Some of it is the tougher matchup against the Hornets, but there is also concern over volatility. Barrett has had three straight games of consistent scoring but was off before that, begging the question of how long he can keep up his shooting. OddsShopper has a 71% chance of this bet staying under 20.5 points, combined with a 30% expected ROI. Awesemo has Barrett struggling to get points tonight, finishing with 16.8 points.

Mitchell Robinson Under 9.5 Rebounds (+116, FanDuel)

This is one of the best plays on the board, combining a great return with a nice gap between projection and prop. Mitchell Robinson is projected for 8.5 rebounds and an expected ROI of 43% at +116. OddsShopper sees Robinson finish under 9.5 rebounds 66% of the time, as the matchup against Charlotte’s frontcourt will not allow Robinson to dominate. There is also competition around Robinson, especially now that Randle has returned to a more dominant form. Bettors get an expected ROI of over 40% with a bet that is expected to hit two out of every three times. Much like Barrett, this one is about volatility, as Robinson has failed to find anything consistent on the glass.

The Latest Sports Betting Content from Awesemo Odds

LaMelo Ball Under 19.5 Points (+100, FanDuel)

The more LaMelo Ball scores the less chance Charlotte has in winning the game. It has been that kind of year for both Ball and his team, as they struggle to find balance with their point guard. Awesemo has Ball projected under this number (17.7 points), factoring in the 60% expected win rate and 21% expected ROI on this bet. Plus, there is even money and a nearly 2-point gap between Awesemo’s projection and the books. The Hornets should snap back from their miserable shooting performance against the Magic. Ball will have an easier time facilitating than shooting against the Knicks, the difference of a basket or two, staying under his point total.

Terry Rozier Over 5.5 3-Pointers (+640, FanDuel)

Rozier put up 15 attempts from three last game against the Magic and 27 combined attempts over the previous three games. Rozier is averaging over nine attempts from behind the arc each game and hit six just over a week ago. There is volume and a great addition on the return here as opposed to just playing five-plus made 3’s for less money. It is worth taking the extra risk in that if Rozier is feeling it; he has a greater chance of hitting six than staying on four or five.
