3 units on Cleveland +4.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

The Cavaliers are on a mission this season after dropping a close series to the Celtics last year in the NBA Eastern Conference finals. They have gone 5-3 ATS as a dog on the road thus far this season. They are now 22-7 ATS in their last 29 as a dog of up to 4.5 and 41-20 ATS as a dog on the road in their last 61. The Magic have been doing big things on the road as a dog, but still haven't gotten that home-court protection down against the good teams as they have struggled to a 5-16 ATS mark when favored by 4.5 or less. This has been an underdog series for quite some time with the dog cashing in seven of the last eight. At the very least, the Cavs make this one go to the wire, and I'll back them in this spot.
