Charlotte Hornets vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Analysis

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Hornets will meet for the second time in three days as they square off from the Spectrum Center on Tuesday night.

The Cavaliers prevailed in the first meeting with a 114-108 come from behind victory. This will be the third of four games in a regular season series that Cleveland now leads 2-0.

These teams will meet again in their final game of the regular season on April 9th. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 PM EST/4:00 PST from Charlotte.

Hornets Seek Revenge

The Charlotte Hornets slipped to 22-48 on the season after losing to Cleveland on Sunday. The Hornets may have lost the game due to a 19-10 turnover disadvantage.

Terry Rozier led his team in scoring with 27 points on 10-19 from the field. Nick Richards recorded a 15 point, 12 rebound double-double while PJ Washington added 19 points and 5 rebounds.

Charlotte sits at 14th in the Eastern Conference, 5.5 games ahead of the last place Detroit Pistons. The Hornets have struggled to score this season as they rank 26th in scoring with only 111.8 points a game on 45.5% from the field.

They sit at 21st in defensive rating and 23rd in defensive scoring with 117.5 points allowed per game. Mark Williams (thumb) and Cody Martin (knee) have both been ruled out for this contest while Kelly Oubre Jr is probable with a back issue.

Cavaliers Riding High After Comeback Victory

The Cleveland Cavaliers improved to 43-27 on the season after their comeback victory over Charlotte on Sunday.

The Cavaliers actually lost the majority of the statistical categories but did have a 56-52 edge in points in the paint. Darius Garland led all scorers with 28 points along with 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Donovan Mitchell scored 23 points while Evan Mobley added 18 points and 9 rebounds.

The Cavaliers currently occupy the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference, 7 games behind the first place Bucks. Cleveland only scores 112 points a game which ranks them 24th in the NBA in scoring.

Defense is their calling card as they are #2 in defensive rating and #1 in defensive scoring with only 106.7 points allowed per game. Donovan Mitchell (thumb/finger) and Jarrett Allen (eye) have both been ruled out for this game.

Charlotte Hornets vs Cleveland Cavaliers Player Prop Prediction

The Cleveland Cavaliers are 6 point road favorites with a total set at 220.5. The Hornets led by as many as 14 points before blowing the lead to Cleveland on Sunday.

However now the Cavs will be playing without two of their top players in Donovan Mitchell and Jarrett Allen. There will be a ton of extra statistics on the table for Cavalier players and Evan Mobley should take the lions share.

Mobley now has a Points + Rebounds + Assists total set at 36.5 after posting 30 PRA against Charlotte with Mitchell on the court. The Hornets defense can be exposed by bigs as they allow the 4th most points, most rebounds and 9th most assists to opposing centers.

Charlotte will also be without their starting center in Mark Williams, opening the door for Mobley to thrive in the paint. Let’s back Mobleys PRA over tonight in Charlotte.

Player Prop Prediction: Evan Mobley Over 36.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists -115 Draftkings
