Charlotte Hornets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Pick

1u - Darius Garland o24.5 PTS (-120) Bet $120 to collect $220 DraftKings has the best odds; click here to bet

Betting on Darius Garland without Donovan Mitchell might be the easiest decision I could think of. Garland has hit this in three of his last four without Mitchell and averages over 26 points a night in his absence. He gets a great matchup here tonight and should see a heavy usage rate.

Charlotte Hornets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction

Charlotte has been getting torched by Mr. Garland all year. Last game against them, he scored 28 points, and in mid-November, he scored 41 against them. If he can average 34.5 against Charlotte with Mitchell, he should be a shoo-in for 25 without him.

Garland's assists are also an interesting look, but I really feel like we should see 20+ FGA from him, and off of volume alone, this one could hit. This total is lower than I would like it to be, but he should carry the bulk of his team's scoring. The spread of six is close enough for me to assume Garland should see a normal load, and this is my best bet of the day because of it. Let's stay hot, and let's roll!
