Magic Have Awful History vs Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers are beginning to stretch the gap between themselves and everyone else in the Eastern Conference and will be looking for their eighth victory in 10 games when they welcome the Orlando Magic to town Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The Magic are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road games.
  • The Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games.
  • The Magic are 0-5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the teams in Cleveland.

To say the Cavs have given the Magic fits as of late would be a massive understatement. Orlando is winless in their previous 12 games against the wine and gold. The good news for Magic backers is they’ve recently fared well coming off a loss, going 4-1 ATS in their last 5 after dropping the previous game.

The UNDER is trending ahead of this one for both sides. Cleveland has seen its prior six contests go below the closing total, while the UNDER is also 4-1 in the last five meetings between the clubs in Ohio.
