Cleveland Cavaliers vs Orlando Magic Prediction

The Cleveland Cavaliers are coming into this game in excellent form, rested and with no lingering injury issues. They have been phenomenal on both sides of the floor recently, and their defence should be at full strength in this game.

With the Magic also having time to rest and recover, and their aspirations to make the playoffs this year, I expect their defence to be on point as well. They have been playing solid D all season, and I expect the combination of slow pace and tough defence to result in a lower number of points on both sides.

This brings me to our tip of the night, and I’m going with a player prop. The Magic play solid defence in the paint, allowing 48.7 points per night, and with the game slowing down, I expect Jarrett Allen to have a low-scoring night.

He has also hit the under in 3 of his last 5 games, and I just see this one as a good spot to back the under again. His scoring record against the Magic this season has been 8, 4 and 14 points.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have figured it out, ranking top 5 in both offensive and defensive rating and winning 9 games over their recent 10-game span. The Injuries to Mobley and Garland helped turn this team around and they are now 2nd in the Eastern Conference and available at 26.00 odds to win the NBA title and at 11.00 to win the conference.

The Cavs play a slow style of basketball with lots of passing and a very low number of turnovers per game. Donovan Mitchell is having a terrific season for them, averaging 28.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game. Overall, the Cavs have ranked 4th in assists per game in their last 5 with 30.2 per game and 5th in net rating.

The Orlando Magic are also in excellent form right now, winning 7 of their last 10 games and coming off a 118-100 home win against the New York Knicks. They are currently 8th in the conference and tied with the Miami Heat with a 30-25 record. Their performance on the road is nothing to write home about at 12-17, but they are 18-11 against the spread, which ranks them 4th in the league in that regard.

The Magic also play a slow style of basketball, but they aren’t as efficient on offence, ranking 11th in offensive rating with 111.7 points per game (26th in the league). Their defence has been solid this season, allowing 110.9 points per game, but their defensive rating has taken a hit recently, going up to 118.4 (20th).
