Betting fans and NBA fans alike, the NBA betting world takes different shapes throughout the season and in a world plagued with the Coronavirus, you never know who will be placed in the health & safety protocols.
Hornets catch the COVID-19 bug
Charlotte has seen their three starters in Mason Plumlee, Terry Rozier, and Miles Bridges becoming long-term absentees after being placed in the health & safety protocols. With Terry gone, each game, Hornets lose 16-22 points, with Ball 20-25 points on regular and Plumlee led the team in rebounds in 7 and more. Hornets have scored in 115-135 points range repeatedly can see the production a little hit. Still, the team has three isolation scorers in Miles Bridges, Gordon Hayward, and Kelly Oubre who can hit out for 60-70 points. Will PJ Washington step up in the reserve role? Do follow the tussle between Hawks and Hornets to find it out! For bettors, it will be interesting to see how Hornets perform in terms of Total Over and Under. I expect them to pull through but the points range may decrease from 115-135 to 100-115. Let us see!
Grizzlies are holding out without Morant
Don’t know how the Grizzlies defense has improved after being one of the worst in the league. Surely, they have faced some depleted or teams with losing records during their win streak but that doesn’t take away what Jaren Jackson Jr. and co have been able to do so far. It hasn’t been a wise move to bet against Memphis, the team is playing some inspirational basketball, it beat the Thunder by 73 points and then rolled over Mavericks in the last scoring, in an Under 100 encounter. Memphis is clicking without its superstar, how long can the outfit sustain this rhythm?
