Let’s be real, Michael Jordan might be the basketball G.O.A.T. on the court, but he’s far from that in the office. The owner of the Hornets has had little success with the franchise. No, he doesn’t have complete say on the roster — general manager Mitch Kupchak — also helps in that regard, but “there’s something in the water” in Charlotte, and it ain’t good. But there’s reason to believe things are changing, and that reason is LaMelo Ball, who has become the new face of its franchise.
If Ball develops into the superstar talent many around the league think he’s capable of, then we might see a rise in prominence of the Hornets. If so, you’ll see a bigger presence at the top online sportsbooks for NBA. We want to get ahead of that would-be scenario, which is why we’ve created this guide for Charlotte Hornets betting. You’ll find everything you need to wager on the up-and-coming team right here so stick with us for must-know information!

Charlotte Hornets Game Schedule
Now it’s time for the Hornets’ entire schedule — all 82 games. This should help you plan your Charlotte Hornet bets ahead, allowing you to single out future games you’re certain you want to play. Odds won’t be available this far out ahead (only if the game is next), but you still want to use the schedule to find opportunities. For instance, you can look for extended home stands or the opposite, long road trips which can wear down the team by the end of it.
What Are The Current Charlotte Hornets Standings
Take stock of where the Hornets sit in the Eastern Conference standings. Only the top-six-finishing teams are guaranteed playoff spots. Those that finish seventh through tenth must win a play-in game. Let’s face it, the Charlotte Hornets betting odds to win championship are not particularly strong, but playoffs should be the bare minimum expectations. The standings will show you if they’re living up to that or not.
Charlotte Hornets Online Betting Tips
Here's some tried-and-true betting advice for the Hornets: any improvement this team makes will have to come from within. Look, not many free agents are lining up to play in Charlotte — and that's with MJ as the owner. The city is mediocre and the franchise is worse than that. But the Hornets have benefitted from many high draft picks as of late, and if the franchise's fortunes are to change, it'll be because they hit it big on those picks (e.g. Ball).
So if you're laying money on Charlotte, especially a long-term bet on Charlotte Hornets winning championship, you need to factor in how its young players are or are NOT developing. Read the training camp reports, watch the players closely, and gauge if any are ready to take the "next step." That will be the biggest determining factor in the Hornets' long-term prospects on the court.
Charlotte Hornets Betting Odds
There are a lot of ways to bet on Charlotte Hornets — spreads, over/under, moneyline, props, and futures. We'll be honest, futures should be avoided until this team proves it can contend for anything besides an NBA Draft lottery pick. Stick to bets on individual games.
Over time, you might find yourself more successful at over/under betting than, say, spreads. In fact, we expect this to happen and that's probably a good thing. Whether you're gambling on Charlotte or another team, success usually comes from specialization. But it'll take time, experience, and yes, money, to find what type of bet you have an "edge" in. Short-term pain for long-term gain is the way we look at it!
