The Charlotte Hornets are 1-3 ATS overall, 0-1 ATS on the road, and 1-2 ATS as an underdog this season while the Indiana Pacers are 3-2 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS at home, and 2-1 ATS as a favorite on the year.

I look for those trends to continue which is why I am buying the .5 point and laying the points with the Indiana Pacers when they host the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday evening.
