Jaden Ivey Over 14.5 Points (+100)

Jaden Ivey is in a funk of late, scoring 12 or fewer points in four of his past five games. That makes it seem like the under is the way to go on this one, but I'm bullish on the over.

Ivey has been plagued by ice-cold shooting during this recent swoon, and he won't keep shooting this badly. The rookie is hitting just 32.8% of his shots over the last five, including 24.0% from three. For the year, he's made 40.4 of his shots and 30.0% from deep.

He can get going today versus the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets are giving up the sixth-most points per game to shooting guards (24.3), and Charlotte ranks sixth-worst in defensive rating.

Our model projects Ivey to net 15.1 points, and this is a plus-money prop to hone in on.

Donovan Mitchell Over 2.5 Made Threes (-138)

I went through the Cleveland Cavaliers' made threes props looking for an under to target because of how slow-paced this matchup with the Dallas Mavericks should be and how good Dallas is at preventing the three-ball.

But I stumbled into an over our model adores.

Donovan Mitchell isn't shy about hoisting shots from beyond the arc. He's taken at least seven three-pointers in 21 of his past 22 games. He's put up double-digit threes in four of his previous 10 outings. Mitchell has nailed at least three treys in three of his last five contests.

We have Mitchell making 3.4 triples on 9.2 tries on Wednesday. The over is the side to be on.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Under 1.5 Made Threes (+110)

Here's an under both me and our model are into.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is up against the Washington Wizards. Washington isn't good on D -- just 22nd in defensive rating -- but they do a nice job limiting three-point tries. For the season, the Wiz are giving up a three-point attempt rate of 37.2%, the eighth-lowest.

KCP has hit multiple trifectas in three straight, and he's on fire from three this season, hitting 46.1% of his shots from downtown. That 46.1% clip is not going to last. He's made more than 40.0% of his threes in only one season of his career, and he's a 38.0% shooter from three over his last four campaigns.

While Caldwell-Pope is a marksman, he won't keep shooting 46.1% on his three-balls.

We project KCP right at this line as we expect him to make 1.6 threes on 4.4 attempts versus Washington. With the over at -136 and the under priced at +110, I would rather take a shot on the under.
