Hornets-Celtics Prop Bets Tonight

1. LaMelo Ball - Points: Under 18.5 (-120)

Second-year pro LaMelo Ball has been hit-or-miss all season long in terms of his scoring. He is pouring in an average of 19.4 points a night, but has hit the under on this prop in four of his last seven games. He doesn't take nearly as many shots as some of his teammates given his ability to dish out assists. Boston is a nightmare matchup here, too. The Celtics have posted the fifth-best defensive efficiency mark in the NBA and allow the eighth-fewest points per game overall (105.7). Ball loves to drive to the rim, which makes it important to point out that Boston also gives up just 42.2 points in the paint per contest (No. 4 in NBA).

2. Robert Williams - Rebounds: Over 10.5 (-106)

The Celtics have all kinds of depth issues going on right now due to a number of different injuries. It has allowed big man Robert Williams to see a lot more playing time, though. The former Texas A&M standout has been a monster on the boards lately, racking up at least 11 rebounds in three of his last four games. He has a perfect opportunity to keep his momentum rolling on Wednesday night. Charlotte is giving up the most rebounds per game in the NBA (56.7) and allow an opponent defensive rebounding percentage of 77.9% (No. 19 in NBA). Back Williams to crash the boards in this one.

3. Terry Rozier - Assists: Over 3.5 (-115)

The Hornets love to spread the ball around on offense and average the third-most assists per game in the NBA (27.1). It has led to guard Terry Rozier finding his teammates at a higher rate than usual lately. In fact, he has surpassed the 3.5 assist mark in each of his last six games and posted at least 6 assists in each of his last two games. The Celtics are a tough defensive matchup, but Rozier has played in at least 35 minutes in every game over the past week. It is clear that head coach James Borrego trusts the 27-year-old and it has been paying off.
