The New York Knicks stunned the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of their opening-round playoff series, pulling off an upset win to send shockwaves through Cleveland and establish themselves as the new series favorite, at least according to the odds.
That loss was not due to the play of Donovan Mitchell, however, as the Cavs star posted 38 points to go with five rebounds and eight assists. Mitchell has been the catalyst behind the Cavaliers’ success all year, and if they are to turn it around, he’ll be one of the main reasons why.
Our Action Labs model projections have established projected value on Mitchell’s prop lines for the evening. The proprietary data looks to find small edges over a big sample size in order to help bettors make more sound decisions in the long term.
Read on to see where we see value in the NBA player prop market this evening.
