Market Report for Friday, January 11th
*Indicates team is on the second leg of a back-to-back
**Lines are opening numbers
Charlotte Hornets (-6.5, 226.5) at *Detroit Pistons
It’s been a while since either of these teams experienced a victory. Charlotte comes in on an 0-6 SU slide with a 1-6 ATS record in its previous seven. Detroit is 0-6 SU/1-5 ATS in its last six overall, and Cade Cunningham has missed their last five contests. The Pistons have been lifeless during this losing streak, posting a -16.5 net rating and losing by an average of 16.3 points per game. Cunningham is unlikely to play tonight after being downgraded before the meeting with Memphis yesterday, so it seems like the spot for Charlotte to right the ship, but they need their offense to wake up for that to happen. Over the course of this six-game losing streak the Hornets are putting up just 1.0 point per possession, and as a result all six games have gone Under. Gordon Hayward is also still sidelined which is not going to help this offense get back on track. Fading the Pistons might seem like an obvious strategy, but until the Hornets show an iota of consistency why would you lay these kinds of numbers on the road with them?
