Handicapper WeBeatTheSpread is here with an NBA pick for Wednesday Night's NBA slate between the Charlotte Hornets vs. Philadelphia 76ers. Come get this Hornets vs 76ers prediction, pick, and odds.

Charlotte Hornets vs. Philadelphia 76ers Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Charlotte Take Advantage of 76ers?

The Philadelphia 76ers travel to Charlotte tonight to take on the Hornets after a big win yesterday as underdogs against the Nets. The win improved the Sixer's record to 9-8 on the season as they sit in seventh place in the east. The Hornets, meanwhile, haven't played since Sunday when they lost to the Wizards, dropping them to 4-14 on the season. The Hornets sit just above the Pistons for last place in the east. The Hornets are surprisingly a favorite for just their fifth game so far this season. Can they cover at home in this game?

Hornets vs. 76ers Prediction

The Sixers are coming off a massive win. Without the likes of Joel Embiid, James Harden, or Tyrese Maxey, the Sixers managed to pull off a win as eight-point underdogs against the Nets at home. The stadium was rocking as fans were booing Ben Simmons every time he missed a shot. Obviously, the Sixers really wanted to beat the Sixers with the narrative around the Ben Simmons situation, and they did. Now, they travel on no days of rest without their three best players again and are underdogs once again.

The Sixers needed players to step up on offense to beat the Nets in the absence of Embiid, Maxey, and Harden, and two players who lit it up from outside were Georges Niang and De'Anthony Melton. Niang had 16 points and shot 4/5 from three, while Melton had 22 points and shot 6/11 from three. The pair combined for 10/16 (62.5%) from three, which is astounding. The team as a whole shot well from deep, as the Sixers made 50% of their threes throughout last night's game. Although the Sixers are generally a decent three-point shooting team, I do not think this is a sustainable number for them to hit again tonight. I expect some regression from deep against the Hornets tonight.

Another thing to note for this game is Tobias Harris' status. Harris was the leading scorer against the Nets yesterday, scoring 24 points while shooting 10/21 from the floor. Harris is the leading scorer for the team behind the three injured players and was pivotal in beating the Nets. He left the game after suffering an ankle injury but ended up returning and finishing the game. Harris is listed to play tonight and does not have an injury designation, but on a back-to-back, you have to wonder what the plan will be for his minutes. I wouldn't be surprised to see him limited in tonight's game.

If the Hornets can't at least win this game, there are some serious issues with the Hornets, and they should be relegated to the G League. LaMelo Ball is out, but other than that, the Hornets are playing a severely shorthanded Sixers team missing their top three leading scorers and a banged-up fourth. The Hornets also have a massive rest advantage, as they have not played in three days, while the Sixers are traveling on a back-to-back. The Sixers are coming off an emotional win in a big home game and shot 50% from three. This seems to be a let-down spot, and the books agree. The Hornets would not usually be -4.5 favorites in a game against the Sixers, and there is a good reason the line is where it is. Take the Hornets to improve to 5-14 tonight.
