Cleveland at Orlando
Monday 04/11 07:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Cleveland +1.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
The Cavaliers are 2-1 ATS in their last three games. And the Magic is 1-2 ATS in its last three. Cleveland is 3-0 ATS this season against Orlando. Expect that trend to continue for another game. I expect a top caliber performance on both sides of the ball from the Cavaliers and a sub-par performance on offense from the Magic. Cleveland knows how to handle teams that struggle offensively. They are 17-7 ATS (versus poor defensive teams - allowing 99+ points/game this season. Meanwhile, since the all-star break Orlando is 1-6 ATS at home when facing a team with a winning record. And, they are 9-22 ATS as a home favorite this season. One star on the Cavs.
