Each game day, we at All Hornets will release an article on our thoughts on the spread and the over/under of Charlotte Hornets games. The star ratings next to the play describe the overall confidence in that particular play.

Star ratings:

1 Star - Not very confident

2 Star - A little confident

3 Star - Fairly confident

4 Star - Very confident

5 Star - Should be a lock to happen

Spread: Cavaliers -12.5

3 Star play on the Cavaliers (-12.5): The Hornets have just about everyone listed as questionable for this one, which is also what I would project the effort for the final game of the season - questionable. Even with nothing to play for, the Celtics crushed the Hornets by 33 just two days ago with all of their key guys out. I don’t see much changing this afternoon in Cleveland.

Over/Under: 209.5

2 Star play on the over: I’m not sure Charlotte will even reach 90 in this game, but I feel confident enough in the Cavs’ ability to score the ball efficiently to carry us up and over the number one final time this season.

My picks this season

ATS: 25-28 (47%)

O/U: 27-26 (51%)

Overall: 52-54 (49%)
