Friday's NBA slate of Play-In Tournament games includes an exciting showdown between the Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Hawks as the 2.5-point road favorites over the Cavaliers.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Hawks-Cavaliers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Hawks vs Cavaliers Player Props

1. De'Andre Hunter - Points: Over 14.5 (-106)

Head coach Nate McMillan has heavily relied on De'Andre Hunter over the last two games and it's certainly worked out well. The Virginia product is averaging 22.0 points per game over that span while shooting 55.2% from the floor. Hunter has also seen 30-plus minutes in each of those games and evolved into much more than a defensive presence (career-high 37.9% from three-point range). Cleveland is a tough defense, but the Cavaliers just allowed small forward Bruce Brown to drop 18 points on Tuesday night. Expect Hunter to have a similar outing after crushing this over in five of his last eight games.

2. Darius Garland - Rebounds + Assists: Over 11.5 (-140)

In a do-or-die game such as this, it's logical to think the biggest players will step up to the task. Cleveland needs Darius Garland to put together an all-around great performance if they want to secure a spot in the NBA Playoffs. This prop bet is right around Garland's season average given he puts up 3.3 rebounds and 8.6 assists per game. However, he'll have a ton of opportunities to dish out the ball against a Hawks team that allows the ninth-most assists per game in the NBA (25.4). Atlanta also owns the fifth-worst defensive efficiency mark, which makes targeting Garland a smart bet tonight.

3. Evan Mobley - Rebounds: Under 8.5 (+110)

Don't get it twisted, Evan Mobley has had a fantastic year and is rightfully in the conversation for the Rookie of the Year award. The value the under has in this prop bet at plus odds is too much to pass up on, though. Mobley has snagged more than 8 rebounds in just one of his three games since returning from an ankle injury and averages 8.3 boards on the year. He is also set to go toe-to-toe against Clint Capela at the rim. With Capela's help, the Hawks are giving up the eighth-fewest rebounds per game in the league (50.9). This could get sweaty, but take the under.
