The Charlotte Hornets are dealing with some injuries of their own this season, and against a team like the Cavaliers, that is not going to help them tonight. The sportsbooks have the NBA Odds sitting at – 2½ in favor of the Cavs, with a total of 217, and I think those odds should be exploited!

Cavaliers vs. Hornets

If there has been one constant about the Hornets over the past few years, it’s been their defense at home. So far this season their defensive numbers at home have yet to be very impressive, but their offense seems to get a lot better when playing at home too.

They are averaging nearly 112 points per game when playing at home this season, and that has led to the over cashing in their last two home games. However, I don’t think many people realize the pace that the Hornets are playing at, which could mean the over is a fine value from the sportsbooks tonight

The Hornets and Cavs are playing at a pace of more than 99 possessions per game, and for the Hornets, their pace goes way up when they play at home. According to NBA Stats, the Hornets play at a pace of 103.7 possessions per game when they play at home, and against the Cavaliers’ defense, that spells the over to me tonight.

The Cavs are allowing 113.6 points per 100 possessions this season, and on the road, their pace goes up as well, to almost 102 possessions per game. If we see a game where both teams are hitting shots and playing fast, the over is an easy money win for us tonight.
