The Hornets (20-21) had their season flipped on its head on Sunday with the news of LaMelo Ball’s season-ending injury, but they will have to regroup on the road on Monday against the Spurs (22-17), and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

As has been the case much of this season, the Hornets have another injury that’ll rattle its rotation, though this one is the worst yet. Ball’s fractured wrist will likely rule him out for the season, taking away not just a standout rookie for the Hornets but their starting point guard and one of the team’s top players this season.

  • Point spread: Hornets +5

  • Moneyline: Hornets +170 / Clippers -200

  • Over-under: 223.5

Advice and prediction

In terms of gut punches, few compare to the one the Hornets were dealt on Sunday with the loss of Ball. More than just being a standout rookie, he was the team’s starting point guard and his absence changes the dynamic of the team.

It could take some time to adjust post-Ball for the Hornets and a team as well-oiled as the Spurs are not a great first test out of the gate. Take San Antonio minus-5 on Monday while the Hornets get their bearings.

Prediction: Spurs 112, Charlotte 103
