The Washington Wizards are favored when they are at home hosting the Charlotte Hornets. This is as it should be as Charlotte is a woeful 15-40 on the season.
These two teams have played three times already this season. On November 7th Washington won 108-100. On November 20th the Wizards won 106-102. On December 2nd, Charlotte hosted the game and won 117-116.
Which Team Will Break Their Losing Streak?
The Wizards come into this game as losers of three in a row and the Charlotte Hornets have lost four games in a row. This gives both teams an opportunity to get things back on the right track tonight. Who does our computer think will be that team?
Washington is 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games. Before the losing skid, they had the longest-running winning streak in the NBA at 6 games. Washington hopes to return to their winning form tonight.
The OddsTrader AI-generated model has the Washington Wizards defeating the Charlotte Hornets 118-109. With the spread set at -4, the computer has found a nice 5-point edge for us to bet.

Two of the best teams in the NBA take the court when the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Boston Celtics. This game will be very important for playoff positioning. Currently, the Boston Celtics are 38-16 in the Philadelphia 76ers are 34-18.
With the number one seed in the Eastern Conference at state, both teams will be giving full effort in tonight’s contest.
Why Did the Books Post This Total So Low?
The Boston Celtics average 117.6 points per game, and the Philadelphia 76ers average 114.6 points scored per game. However, tonight’s total is 224. The total has gone Over in 12 of Philadelphia’s last 17 games. These teams are trending upward with their point output. Boston also ranks #1 in the NBA in offensive efficiency.
Our second AI pick has a 7-point edge. That is quite significant when running NBA models. The OddsTrader AI prediction has this game at 229 and the books are currently listing this total at 224.

The Sacramento Kings take on the Houston Rockets again after the two teams played in Houston on Monday night. In that game, the Sacramento Kings were able to prevail 140-120. Now, these two teams run it back on the same court.
Will the Zig-Zag Theory Apply Tonight?
The zig-zag theory is simple. When two teams play each other multiple times in a row, you bet the opposite of the result from the last game. In the last game, the Kings went over and they covered the spread. So the zig-zag theory would dictate that you take the Rockets and the under. Let’s see if the computer agrees.
The Kings average 119.2 points per game and the Rockets average 110.1 points per game. Yet tonight’s total is set at 240. The total has gone Under in 6 of Sacramento’s last 8 games.
Our computer algorithm has projected the final score of this game to be 120-111 in favor of the Sacramento Kings. That gives us an 8-point edge to the Under.
Bet accordingly; the AI has spoken.
