UNDER Hot When Cavs and Hornets Meet

The Cleveland Cavaliers-Charlotte Hornets tilt may not be the most attractive matchup on Wednesday’s NBA slate, however, it’s going to be very appealing to totals bettors. The UNDER has been a sizzling hot bet when the Eastern Conference foes collide, evidenced by seven of the previous eight meetings between the clubs going below the closing total.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games against the Southeast Division.
  • The Hornets are 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Cavaliers are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

The Cavs (35-12 SU, 21-23-3 ATS) kept their five-game winning streak alive on Monday thanks to a 116-106 overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers. Cleveland has gone 3-1-1 ATS during the streak, and are also a solid 3-0 ATS in their previous three versus the Hornets.

The Hornets (23-25 SU, 23-24-1 ATS) are starting to get it together after having an up and down start to the campaign. Charlotte has won four of its last six games despite getting some poor performances from its top player, Kemba Walker, who’s shooting 29.5 percent from the floor and 27.3 percent from deep in his last five contests.

Another trend that will appeal to UNDER bettors is the Hornets have cashed UNDER bets in four of their last five at home. On the season, the OVER/UNDER is 9-15 at Time Warner Cable Arena.
