The Washington Wizards vs. the Charlotte Hornets Key Stats

After a 3-1 start, the Washington Wizards have hit a brick wall. They have lost their last two games and five of their past six. Although most of those losses have come against tough opponents, the Wizards were largely uncompetitive, with the five losses coming by an average margin of 16.6 points per game.

While Washington's defense ranks 13th in opponents points per game, it is just 24th in defensive rating. The offense, however, has been the main cause of the Wizards' struggles. They rank just 29th in points per game and 24th in offensive rating.

Despite being without star guard LaMelo Ball, the Charlotte Hornets opened the season with two wins in their first three games. Since then, they have lost six of their last seven games, including their last four.

The Hornets have struggled offensively without Ball, ranking just 21st and 27th in points per game and offensive rating, respectively. While their defense hasn't been bad, it hasn't been good either. Charlotte ranks 19th in opponents points per game and 14th in defensive rating.

In addition to Ball, Gordon Hayward is also out for the Hornets, while Cody Martin is doubtful and Dennis Smith Jr. is questionable. The Wizards, meanwhile, will be without their star guard, Bradley Beal, as well as Delon Wright.

The Washington Wizards vs. the Charlotte Hornets betting prediction

While the Wizards will once again be without Bradley Beal, who was sorely missed in a six-point loss Sunday night, the Hornets are simply missing too many pieces in addition to LaMelo Ball. Charlotte's offense has been unable to score consistently and has been inefficient overall. Look for Washington to snap their recent skid with a strong performance on the road against the Hornets. Additionally, with two quality defenses facing offenses that have been awful, expect the under of two.

Pick: Washington Wizards ML (+115) and Under 214 (-110)
