How To Bet The Cavaliers vs Magic NBA Spread

Written by on March 17, 2016

In order to be a champion, a team has to overcome all sorts of adversity, although it is sometimes of their own making. This seems to be what is going on in Cleveland at the moment, as the Cavaliers seem intent on creating drama where there really shouldn’t be any. They fired their head coach at a point when they were in a decent lead at the top of the Eastern Conference, and numerous reports suggest that what they have there is a locker room that is totally fractured. They are still managing to win on a regular basis in spite of all of this drama, but you have to wonder if they can keep it going all the way through to an NBA title. Right now, it’s just about seeing out the regular season and finishing with the #1 seed in the East. They will try to continue to build on that lead when they welcome in the Orlando Magic on Friday night.

Why bet on the Cleveland Cavaliers

Cleveland (48-19) will get to enjoy a couple of days in the sun when they head to Florida for consecutive night games against the Magic and the Heat. Chances are they will have a more difficult time of things in Miami, especially when you consider that the Magic are a team that Cleveland has beaten on 13 straight occasions dating back to the 2012-13 season. That includes having beaten them 3 times already this season, with none of the games being anywhere near to what you would call close. The Cavs have certainly been better on home court, but still have a solid 20-13 road record this season. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games, and are averaging 103.6 PPG, while giving up 97.4 PPG so far this season.

Why bet on the Orlando Magic

There is nothing magic about the season that Orlando (29-38) are putting together so far. While they are mathematically still in a position to make the playoff, they are still 4.5 games back of the final spot with time running out rather quickly. On the bright side of things, Orlando does, by the barest of margins, have a winning record at home, but also only have 2 wins in their last 7 games overall. This is a team that doesn’t look like it has what it takes to make a big move in the final few weeks, and it now seems as though it’s just a matter of time before they are mathematically eliminated. The Magic are averaging 100.8 PPG, and are giving up 102.9 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

There is always that one team that seems to be a lucky charm for another, and the Orlando Magic would appear to be that for the Cavaliers. This should be an easy win for the Cavs, as they extend their win streak over Orlando to 14 games.Cleveland Cavaliers 106 Orlando Magic 97
