On Monday night, the Sixers and Hornets meet for the second time in three nights. The first meeting between the teams on Saturday night went in Philadelphia’s favor 127-112. Let’s get into our Sixers-Hornets betting preview, including odds, boosts, and picks.
The first meeting between Charlotte and Philadelphia went in the Sixers’ favor by fifteen points in a game that didn’t feel particularly close. In fact, as we predicted in our preview ahead of Saturday’s matchup, the Sixers struggled to contain a dynamic scoring guard as Terry Rozier went off to the tune of 35 points. Free agent signing Gordon Hayward put up a respectable 20/6/6 line to keep the game from being an absolute blowout.
The most disappointing player on Saturday night was LaMelo Ball, who was dogged consistently by Sixers point guard Ben Simmons. Ball mustered just 13 points on 4-12 shooting from the field.
Sixers guard Shake Milton saw the most minutes of any Sixers bench player, contributing 18 points in 25 minutes of game action.
