Three Cavs @ Hornets Prop Bets

The Cavs and Hornets played each other to begin the 2020-21 year, and Cleveland turned a few heads with an impressive win. So did Terry Rozier, who hung over 40 points on the team, repping the city he grew up in.

And now, as they prepare to meet for the first time in 2021-22, things are looking interesting. Both teams are competitive. Let’s examine a few prop bets worth looking into.

No Overtime, -1800

One way or another, a team is leaving Charlotte with a win, as that is the nature of the game. However, it is going to be a game that could be a bit tough for each side. The shooting ability of the Hornets, combined with the Cavs incredible length on defense, is going to make it a blast.

This prop bet may seem like a waste to bet on, but throw down some money and win it for free. There is a very low chance the game goes to OT because the end result will be a game that has a double-digit difference into the waning moments.

Each side will make their case to be a playoff/play-in team this season, but for now, one will best the other pretty handily, meaning no OT.

Miles Bridges, First FG +650

The biggest surprise between these two teams so far has been undoubtedly Miles Bridges. He has been hooping at a high level and looking to keep it up. The team also amazingly had a massive Kelly Oubre Jr. performance against Portland, as they have just so many different weapons.

With all of the scoring he has been able to do, Bridges has started games off fast. Whether by lob, drive, or just pull-up J, he is going to turn it on right away. He wastes no time, and of all the guys Charlotte starts, he has the best chance of scoring first. Cleveland likely wins the tip and fails to score on possession number one.

A lob from LaMelo Ball is another likely option. Off the first miss by CLE, they’ll get it and race ahead. Ball throws to Bridges. Bang.

Hornets First to Five Points, 4Q, -125

The game is going to be a lot of fun, but there have been a few early-season negatives mixed into the Cavs 3-4 beginning. They have had trouble in fourth quarters at times, and that is going to be an issue against a Charlotte team that is starting to learn their defensive identity.

Though they will not get the ball first in the frame, the Hornets will put five points up in the fourth quarter before Cleveland is able to do so. The Ish Smith minutes have been going very well, which just makes everybody wonder why no one team ever chooses to keep him around for too long.

At the end of the day, Charlotte is likely going to be a play-in team. They have talent at pretty much every spot and have figured out the center position. They will also start the final frame hot.
