Caris LeVert loves to dish it. John Hyslop loves to bet him. It's a match made in heaven.

NBA Player Prop Picks for Tuesday: LeVert Does Dishes

It's been a long day. We can all say that at this point. We know the only way to put this one in the books like the absolute beasts we are is to throw down on some NBA for tonight. That's just what beasts do after a long day. It's how they operate. Lucky for us there are seven games in the association tonight. We have to be able to find at least one move we can be proud of. The one I like the most comes right on time at 7:30pm ET and it features one of my favorite guys to back. I don't see how we can possibly lose this bet.

Caris LeVert Over 3.5 Assists (-120) (Bet $120 to win $100)

I don't like going as high as -120 but I'll do it tonight. FanDuel is offering 4.5 at +116 for you real gamblers if you don't want to lay -120. The only reason I'm going with the 3.5 is because I need to get up crazy early again so I want something that will cash in the first half. This should do the trick.

Caris LeVert doesn't need an introduction. He's an animal and his filth is contagious. Everyone's filth level goes up a notch just for being in the same uniform as him. You can literally see it happening. It's crazy.

Now LeVert has only been on the Cavaliers for three games and he's cleared this number in two of them. Over that span, he's seen an average of eight potential assists per game so that's a healthy number in my opinion. The thing is, every game he's been in a Cavaliers' uniform has been against teams that are good in the opponent assists per field goal made metric. One game was against Philadelphia who happens to be the third best team in terms of efficiency over the last three games.

Tonight the Cavaliers won't see a very good defense when they visit the Atlanta Hawks. In fact, only one team in the entire NBA is worse in terms of defensive efficiency than the Hawks. What's even better is 65% of their opponents' field goals over the last three games have come via the assist. People helping people.

LeVert could come off the bench again tonight but I don't think that matters. He had six assists against Philadelphia last game in that role so there's that. It also gives him a chance at the cheap "pass it to Kevin Love for a three" assist which is always nice. I think he passes out at least four dimes tonight.
