Cavs Look to Smackdown the Magic Again

The NBA’s version of the Harlem Globetrotters vs the Washington Generals goes down tonight in Cleveland. The Cavs have won 10 straight SU vs the Magic and if that’s not impressive enough, they’ve also gone 11-0 ATS vs the Magic. To make matters worse for Orlando, Cleveland has been unbeatable at home this season, going 7-0 SU.

Betting Trends
  • The Cavaliers are 15-3 SU in their last 18 games against the Eastern conference.
  • The Magic are 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games as road underdogs in November.
  • The total has gone over in the Cavaliers' last five games with one day's rest.

If there’s anything working against the Cavs and their backers, it’s that the team has been awful ATS this season—in their last 10 games, they’ve gone 2-8 ATS. Unfortunately for the Magic, LeBron James has a history of completely owning them. In 42 career games vs the Magic, King James has been a stat machine, averaging 26.5 points, 7.3 boards and 7 assists.

The Magic have been a decent bet on the road this season, going 4-2 ATS. Orlando guard Victor Oladipo is off to a bad start, averaging just 13.1 points per game, which is down from 17.9 last season. This certainly isn’t the progression Magic fans had hoped for.

With the spread opening at -9 for Cleveland it should be noted that eight out of Cleveland’s last ten wins over Orlando have come by nine points or more.
