I really like the value here with Cleveland as short road favorites against the Hornets. Charlotte come in having won 3 straight, but it's not as impressive as you might think. They caught a tired Wizards team in the 2nd game of a back-to-back, an injury depleted Hawks team, and had to rally to beat a horrible Magic team on the road. With Cleveland coming off an upset loss at Denver, this might seem like a good spot to go against the Cavs, but that Nuggets team is the real deal. I don't see the Cavs taking this one lightly, as they are now just 1-game ahead of Boston for the No. 1 seed in the east. Cleveland might say they don't want the top spot, but I'm not buying it. The Cavs have owned the Hornets, going 9-1 over the last 3 seasons, including a perfect 3-0 record this season. I look for them to finish off the sweep and easily cover this number. Take Cleveland!
