Kevin Durant is back!
The former MVP will make his debut for the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night against the Charlotte Hornets, and Phoenix is a massive favorite in the game.
The Hornets have won five straight games, but they lost their best player, guard LaMelo Ball, to a fractured ankle in their last game.
The Suns are 3.5 games out of the No. 3 seed in the West, but they have a chance to make a run with Devin Booker, Durant and Chris Paul all in the lineup.
Even though the Hornets have been hot, there is one way we should bet on this game. Let’s dive into the odds for this matchup:
Suns vs. Hornets odds, spread and total
Suns vs. Hornets prediction and pick
It’s unclear how much Durant will play in his debut, but he’s Kevin Durant!
The Suns’ offense should see a major boost, and now it’s facing a Hornets team that ranks 29th in the league in offensive rating and won’t have its best offensive player in Ball.
As home underdogs this season, the Hornets are just 8-12 against the spread, the second worst mark in the NBA.
Phoenix has been much better with Booker healthy this season, going well over. 500, and Durant should allow the team to move Josh Okogie to the bench unit, making the Suns even deeper.
Lay the points with Phoenix on the road.
