Charlotte Hornets at Orlando Magic
7 p.m. ET
Line: Hornets –3.5 | Total: 224.5 points
Bet the Hornets -3.5 points -105 at BetMGM.
The Magic is winless, but rookie Paolo Banchero is off to a sizzling start. He scored 20 or more points in each game so far, joining legends Elvin Hayes, who started with 10 games, and Oscar Robinson, who started with six games.
Despite this remarkable accomplishment, the Magic are still searching for their identity under second-year coach Jamahl Mosley.
The Hornets are coming off an overtime loss to the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. The good news for the Hornets is that in the loss they had seven players score in double-digits, reflecting unselfish play and good ball movement.
However, the defense allows opponents to move the ball freely as evidenced by five straight Over results and allowing 54% Knicks shooting.
