Tips For Bobcats Hornets Betting – Bobcats Will Get Good Look At Davis

Posted by Craig Parsons on 10/7/2012 6:21:41 PM

In one of the more interesting sports betting matchups of the NBA preseason based on the history of these two franchises, the Bobcats will visit the team that once held court in Charlotte in the New Orleans Hornets. Both teams appear to be in a building mode, and while neither is ready to contend for a playoff spot in its respective conference, this game will be important for an entirely different reason. The Bobcats and Hornets are two young teams looking to build something special in their respective cities, and while New Orleans was the better team a year ago and got stronger with the addition of first-overall pick Anthony Davis, there has also been some excitement in Charlotte after a relatively strong offseason.

The Bobcats didn’t land the first-overall pick in the NBA draft, but can only get better after finishing with the worst record in the association a year ago. Charlotte will get an up-close view of the player it would have landed with the first-overall pick in Davis, but will also get to see it’s last two first round picks work together in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Kemba Walker.

While Davis was the consensus first-overall pick and would have been the perfect addition to the Bobcats’ roster, drafting a proven winner and fierce competitor in MKG was the right move at No. 2. With Walker already there in Charlotte the Bobcats now have two strong scoring threats for the future, and with Gerald Henderson or Ben Gordon at the two-spot they now have a competitive backcourt. Even though it isn’t a significant improvement the way the addition of Davis would have been, the Bobcats are still stronger up front with the addition of Brendan Haywood. There are still missing pieces in Charlotte, but at least they appear to be on the right track.

Landing Davis with the first-overall pick thanks to a very fortunate lottery draft could provide the Hornets with the spark they need to get on the fast track back to contending. Losing franchise player Chris Paul suddenly isn’t as big of a blow as it was a year ago, and in addition to Davis, New Orleans also added young Austin Rivers to play alongside Ben Gordon. Free agent addition Ryan Anderson is a player that has always flown under the radar but has a ton of talent, and will fit perfectly next to Davis in the Hornets’ frontcourt.

Both of these teams has a lot of work to do, and while the Hornets are slightly ahead of the curve thanks to Davis, the Bobcats still have plenty of reason for optimism. Charlotte has more to play for, and its young rookies will look to set the tone early on in their first online betting chance to prove that they will be able to hold their own as the players that were taken by the Bobcats after losing out in last year’s draft lottery.
