Both teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the Hornets are 2-1 ATS in the last three matchups.
Charlotte is a high-scoring team while the Pistons like to slow the game down, however, that has favored the Hornets in the series as they have won seven of the last ten and two of the last three meetings while also going 2-1 ATS in the last three contests. I look for those trends to continue in this matchup which is why I am laying the 4 points with the Charlotte Hornets when they host the Detroit Pistons on Friday.
