Why Bet on the Charlotte Hornets?
The Hornets put on a show in their recent contest against the Portland Trail Blazers. As expected, it was Terry Rozier who led the charge for his team and nearly recorded a triple-double with 34 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds in his 39 minutes on the floor.
The guard has been a treat to watch since the start of the season, watching him attacking the rim and hitting game-winning shots. Terry Rozier is one of the more consistent players of the Hornets, and we look forward to another top-level performance from him in the upcoming game.
With LaMelo Ball out indefinitely as well as Gordon Hayward, the Hornets are counting on PJ Washington, Miles Bridges, and Jalen McDaniels, who secured double-digit scores in their last outing. Washington had 23 points and 8 rebounds, Bridges had 19 to his name, while McDaniels added 13 points. These three are going to play key roles this coming Tuesday.
Why Bet on the New York Knicks?
The hosts are on a hot streak with six straight wins to their name, including a win against the Lakers, Celtics, and the Mavericks. It’s been a while since the Knicks has been this exciting, and the team’s current lineup is responsible for this imposing record. Their last win featured an overtime thriller against the Pelicans, which the Knicks win 122-112.
For the upcoming Hornets vs. Knicks game, coach Tom Thibodeau is expected to keep the same rotation from the previous game. Julius Randle, who listed 33 points, 10 assists, and 5 rebounds in his previous game will be the core of the scoring.
Veteran guard Derrick Rose, who continues to prove his worth wherever he goes, scored 23 points in his last game for the Knicks. His scoring prowess and experience are a valuable asset for this young Knicks team.
Furthermore, the services of sophomore guard RJ Barrett, Reggie Bullock, and Nerlens Noel are good for double-digit games as shown in the Knicks’ last game.

Hornets vs. Knicks Expert Betting Prediction
If the Hornets had a healthy lineup, this would be an even better game for basketball fans. Nevertheless, they have to work with whatever they have, and their outlook still looks good, thanks to Terry Rozier. If they can replay their performance against the Blazers, the Knicks are going to be challenged to score.
On the other hand, the healthy Knicks team is on their way to securing a sure spot in the playoffs, and they have the opportunity to improve their numbers in this Hornets vs. Knicks game. This is going to be a tough one to predict, but on paper, the Knicks have the edge with the Hornets expected to cover the spread and still have chances of pulling off the win if they play their cards right.
