Cleveland Cavaliers at Orlando Magic Predictions & Tips

Cleveland are tipped to cover the spread as a slight betting underdog.

The Cavaliers have bullied Orlando through two games, suffocating them with great defense while winning the battle in the paint.

  • Cleveland Cavaliers have won 8 of the last 10 meetings
  • Cleveland have covered in 7 of the last 10 meetings (1 push)
  • Orlando Magic have failed to cover in 7 of their last 10 games
  • The Under has cashed in the first 2 games in the series

Head To Head

  • Cleveland Cavaliers lead the all-time series 69-65
  • Cleveland Cavaliers lead this NBA playoff series 2-0
  • Cleveland Cavaliers won 96-86 when the two teams last met on April 22

Cleveland Cavaliers Form

Cleveland head out on the road for the first time in the series having opened up a two-game lead at home.

The Cavaliers, who finished fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 48-34 record, entered the postseason on an underwhelming run of form.

They lost four of their last six regular season games, but they have turned things around during the first two games of this postseason series with Orlando.

Cleveland were bullied by New York in the first round a year ago, but they became the bullies in Game 1 as they ran out 97-83 winners.

The Cavaliers then made it back-to-back wins on Monday night as they again stifled Orlando's offense in a 96-86 victory.

Orlando Magic Form

Orlando return home in desperate need of a victory, having started the series with back-to-back road defeats.

The Magic, who compiled a 47-35 record to finish fifth in the Eastern Conference, also enter the playoffs in poor form.

Although they won their final game of the regular season, beating Milwaukee 113-88, they lost four of the final six games as they failed to build any momentum.

Orlando have not been able to get back on track during this series either, scoring under 90 points in each of their first two games.

The Magic dropped the series opener in Cleveland, 97-83, and then fell to a 96-86 in the second meeting with the Cavaliers.

Verdict

It would be foolish to write off Orlando, but right now we have to stick with Cleveland.

They have smothered the Magic through two games, so when you couple that with their recent record against Orlando, the Cavs make for an appealing underdog.
