The NBA franchise has had more tough years than good ones since they were re-introduced to the league as an expansion team for the 2004-05 season. In the 12 seasons during that time, Charlotte has only made the playoffs three times and were ousted in the first round each time. In between those playoff years there have been plenty of finishes near or at the bottom of the standings. However, things are starting to look up in recent seasons, as two of those three playoff appearances have come since the 13-14 season.
The 15-16 season saw Charlotte finish with the best record since coming back to the NBA at 48-34. Charlotte Hornets fans are hoping that it’s a sign of things to come and it could make Charlotte Hornets lines a more attractive betting option for NBA bettors.

Charlotte Hornets Record
The 2015-16 Charlotte Hornets season had a lot of bright spots for what makes this organization one to watch in future years. G Kemba Walker really matured and blossomed into a leader for this young team, and the additions of Nicholas Batum and Al Jefferson brought a veteran presence in the locker room. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s development was stunted with multiple shoulder injuries limiting him to just seven games, but when he and Walker on on the floor together, the Hornets have great scoring ability inside and out.
However, the number bettors should really take note of with this team is the fact that they punctuated their climb up the standings by being able to take care of business on their home floor. Charlotte was 30-11 straight up (SU) in 15-16 and that is often a sign in this league that a franchise is starting to become a consistent winner in this league on a yearly basis. Charlotte really made it tough on opponents coming into their building to leave with a victory and that is definitely something bettors should keep an eye on going forward.
This is definitely a team that has their best basketball ahead of them barring significant injuries, and that means bettors should be able to find plenty of value backing this Hornets squad. When your owner is arguably the greatest NBA player in history – Michael Jordan – anything less than a winning year is deemed unacceptable, and we should see plenty of victories in the Hornets future.
