The Cleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Hornets meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Spectrum Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Cavaliers vs Hornets prediction.

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in rough shape as they've lost six of their last nine games overall, but they will be feeling a little better after snapping a three-game skid with a 115-92 home win over the Hornets on Monday. Evan Mobley, Jarrett Allen and Georges Niang each scored 17 points while Darius Garland chipped in with 15 points and 10 assists. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 53 percent from the field and 17 of 41 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with a 31-17 second quarter push, before they exploded for 37 points in the fourth quarter to make it a complete blowout in the end. The Cavaliers will meet the 76ers after this one.

Charlotte Hornets

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in a major slump as they've lost 12 of their last 14 games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a five-game slide after getting routed by the Cavaliers on Monday. Brandon Miller led the team with 24 points, eight rebounds and three assists, Miles Bridges added 13 points while Terance Mann and Grant Williams scored 12 points each. As a team, the Hornets shot 42 percent from the field and nine of 28 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense and scored just 37 points in the first half to fall behind by double digits and things only got worse in the fourth quarter where they got blown off the floor. The Hornets will face the Warriors after this game.

Cavaliers vs Hornets prediction

The Cavaliers are still missing some players as Donovan Mitchell is still out and Max Strus is listed as questionable, while the Hornets are coming into this one with no one listed on the injury report. The Cavaliers have been playing well below their best for a while now and they are still banged up, but they still come into this one as the team in better form compared to the Hornets who have been ice-cold lately. The line seems hefty, but the Cavaliers made it look easy in their big win over the Hornets on Monday and I think we're about to see a similar result here.
