    <h2>Hornets at 76ers odds, lines, picks and predictions</h2> <h3>Prediction</h3> <p>Hornets 116, 76ers 112</p> <h3><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Money line</a></h3> <p>SPRINKLE on the HORNETS (+175) because they have a <em>strength-on-weakness </em>edge over the 76ers (-220) in fast-break basketball and are trending in a better direction.</p> <p>For instance, Charlotte is third in both fast-break frequency and fast-break points per game (PPG). While Philly’s defense has the third-WORST efficiency in transition and the third-WORST fast-break PPG allowed.</p> <p>Furthermore, Sixers head coach Doc Rivers called out newly acquired SG James Harden‘s performance following Philly’s disappointing loss to Detroit Thursday, which indicates the stress and tension among the Sixers.</p> <p>On top of that, Charlotte has been more efficient and profitable than Philly since Harden debuted with the Sixers Feb. 25.</p> <p>The Hornets are fifth in adjusted net rating (plus-6.2) and fifth in ATS margin (plus-4.9), according to over that span. While the Sixers are 11th in adjusted net rating (plus-3.2) and 18th in ATS margin (minus-0.8).</p> <p>However, I’d only SPRINKLE on the HORNETS (+175), if at all, because Charlotte’s spread is the much sharper play.</p> <p>PLAY: Free, daily sports pick’em contests. <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Play now</a>!</p> <h3><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Against the spread</a></h3> <p>BET the HORNETS +5.5 (-112) heavier than or instead of their ML since Joel Embiid and Harden should propel the 76ers -5.5 (-105) to a victory, but Philly definitely won’t win by that margin.</p> <p>Also, Charlotte is 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings with Philly, 6-1-1 ATS in the last 8 games as road underdogs and 12-8-1 ATS on the road versus teams with a winning record. Whereas the Sixers are 11-17 ATS at home (minus-2.6 ATS margin) and 8-14-1 ATS at home versus winning teams.</p> <p>The HORNETS PLUS THE POINTS is my favorite wager in this game.</p> <h3><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Over/Under</a></h3> <p>PASS because this is a sharp total, and there isn’t a big enough difference between my prediction and the projected total.</p> <p>That said, I “lean” Under 229.5 (-107) because the Hornets are 5-21 O/U in their last 26 games as road underdogs, and the Sixers are 0-5 O/U in their last 5 games as home favorites.</p> <p>Bet legally online with a trusted partner: <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Tipico Sportsbook</a>, Sportsbook Wire’s official sportsbook partner in CO, NJ and soon IA. <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Bet now!</a></p> <p>If you’re looking for more sports betting picks and tips, access all of our content at <a href=""></a> and <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">BetFTW</a>.
