DraftKings odds for the Charlotte Hornets
The Charlotte Hornets have been a team struggling to find their identity ever since Michael Jordan took over ownership in 2010. Since then, the Hornets have only made three playoff appearances, all resulting in first-round exits.
For this upcoming season, DraftKings has given the Hornets a win total over/under 36.5 games. The betting odds of the Hornets making the playoffs are yes +265 and no -350.
It’s safe to say DraftKings doesn’t believe in the Charlotte Hornets for the 2022-23 season. This is a challenge for the Hornets’ young star, LaMelo Ball, to rise to the occasion and prove DraftKings and all their doubters wrong.
Will LaMelo lead the Hornets back to the playoffs for the first time since 2016? We’ll soon find out when the season starts for Charlotte on October 19 against the San Antonio Spurs.
