Wizards vs Cavaliers Prop Bets to Make: Cavs Face Their First Test Without Collin Sexton

Both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards are off to great starts in 2021-22. Neither team was expected to make much of a splash, but yet here they both are, playing in a surprisingly highly anticipated November matchup.

And as the teams continue to prepare for the game, prop bets have come out and are now available to choose from as bets are laid down. Here are a few that may be worth looking into.

Jarrett Allen Over 12.5 Rebounds

The Cavaliers have been as good as they have been because their defense has been up to par, making things happen for them as needed. And as a result of that, they are forcing missed shots that come right off the rim, the ball landing in the laps of their bigs.

Jarrett Allen won Eastern Conference Player of the Week last week, and it was truly no surprise. He had a perfect set of games and played some incredible basketball in all facets. There was not a missed shot that was not landing right in his lap, and he made sure of it. And now, facing a relatively small D.C. team, he is going to punish them for that.

12.5 rebounds is a bit too low of a number, so make sure to cash in on that fact.

Ricky Rubio Over 6.5 Assists

Ricky Rubio has been an absolute assist magnet in the games where he has come off the bench this season. Of course, he ranks second on the team behind Darius Garland but has already been in the double digits twice. And now, with him expected to play an even larger role in the absence of Collin Sexton, this is a golden chance for his assists.

There is little to no doubt that Ricky will get 7+ assists against a Wizards team that does score a lot but has a few weaknesses within the defense. Rubio will be able to find all the open shooters and throw endless lobs to both Allen and the talented rookie Evan Mobley.

With several double-doubles already to his name on the season, there is a good chance tonight yields another one for the Spaniard.

Evan Mobley Top Point Scorer +800

Any one player could truly lead this game in total scoring, as plenty of opportunities will exist for all the bigs, and by association, the guards too. Sexton being out for CLE pretty much opens their offense right up and will allow for a number of different options to be there.

Evan Mobley is going to continue to get more touches, coming in off a 26-point performance against the Knicks. Rubio is not going to come out shooting like last game, as it appeared like it was a one-off. He channeled his Olympic self but won’t need to do that again here.

Mobley showed that he can hit the jumpers, so the shots that had been off and not taken before are dropping through. Guarding Mobley at the 3-pt line is not something defenses really have to do yet. But by the time tonight’s over, that will change.
