Charlotte Hornets vs. Golden State Warriors: Best Bet

Moneyline: The Warriors are an inadvisable -700 favorite for the outright win.

Against the spread: Golden State has struggled to cover big numbers of late, doing so in just one of its past five games with a double-digit advantage. Choose the Hornets on Sunday at -110 against the 11.5 points.

Over/under: The Warriors have played to three straight overs after going under for 11 in a row. Both sides pay -110 and the UNDER is the way to go.
