Fade the Hornets at your own risk. Charlotte has quietly become a point spread darling, covering seven of its last nine games including all three at home in the Spectrum Center. This is a unique spot for Houston as they leave Texas for only one game before heading back to face Orlando tomorrow. The Gold Sheet offers their Hornets vs. Rockets preview for Saturday afternoon:

Date/Time: 03-7-2020, 17:00 EDT
Opening Spread: Houston -8
Opening Total: 222

The Rockets are very aware of Dallas in their rear view mirror in the race for the Southwest Division, and Mike D’Antoni’s men have hopes of climbing as high as No. 2 in the Western playoff position. However, you can’t blame James Harden and Russell Westbrook from looking past a foe they’ve beaten seven-straight times and 17 of the last 18 meetings. The Hornets have been more competitive of late. Harden dropped 40 points on the Hornets in first meeting and Westbrook sat out. Houston is just 7-13 in their last 20 games as a road favorite.

Charlotte Hornets vs. Houston Rockets Pick: Houston 112 – Charlotte 110
