Best Heat-Cavaliers NBA Player Prop | Isaac Okoro

Isaac Okoro Prop O/U 0.5 3-Pointers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a seemingly endless supply of replacement-level wings. Cedi Osman, Lamar Stevens, Dean Wade and Mamadi Diakite have all played serious minutes at the three for them. Sometimes Caris LeVert even plays the position. But although the Cavaliers have plenty of options to swap in for Isaac Okoro, the former fifth-overall pick should step up against the Heat.

Miami’s defense focuses on limiting the production of a team’s highest-usage players. This has often created openings for lower-volume wings like Okoro. The Heat have allowed the second-most corner 3’s per game (4.2) on the seventh-highest shooting percentage (40.4%). They have also allowed the seventh-most made 3’s per game to small forwards on the year (3). Okoro spends almost all of his time at the three and leads the Cavaliers in corner 3’s attempted per game (1.8).


Those who doubt Okoro should just turn to his game log. He exploited the Heat’s defensive vulnerabilities to shoot 2-for-5 against them at home back in November. The Cavaliers played the Heat in Cleveland just once last year, and Okoro recorded a season-high showing in made 3’s (4) and attempted 3’s (8). Although Okoro’s road numbers are a cause for concern, his home production has been solid enough to warrant backing him against the Heat tonight.

Isaac Okoro may not win the game for Cleveland, but he should provide reliable perimeter shooting from the corner. Pinnacle, a sharp sportsbook, has the over priced at -159. FanDuel Sportsbook has Okoro’s standard prop set to -156, but bettors who select the “1+ Made Threes” tab can find it at -150. Okoro sits at +400 to hit a pair of triples as well.
