Charlotte vs. Cleveland
Wednesday 12/23 07:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Cleveland +120 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.2) RESULT: WIN
Cleveland still is recovering from LeBron James leaving, but the Cavaliers do have some weapons as Kevin Love can still score and Andre Drummond is one of the best rebounders in the league. Also, the Cavaliers have an exciting young backcourt in Collin Sexton and Darius Garland along with rookie Isaac Okoro. Charlotte likely will have the same problems it had last season when it couldn't shoot or score well enough to stay in games. Cleveland finished the season with a 5-2-1 ATS record at home. Drummond averaged 17.2 points and 15.2 rebounds with the Cavaliers and Detroit last season but, of course, still has to work on his free-throw shooting. The Hornets hope Gordon Hayward will be the answer to their problems on offense, but it will take time to get some team chemistry. Play the Cavaliers on the moneyline.
