Cleveland Cavaliers have a 15-48 record (28-34-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the second to last place of the East. They have lost two of their last three matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Pistons with a 93-129 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Kevin Love with 18.6 ppg, adding 10.7 boards per game. He is followed by Jordan Clarkson with 17 ppg and 3.4 boards off the bench.
Orlando Magic have a 30-34 record (35-28-1 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Hornets in the 8th place of the East. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Pacers with a 117-112 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Nikola Vucevic with 20.6 ppg, adding 3.9 dimes and a team high 12 boards per game. He is followed by Aaron Gordon with 15.8 ppg, 3.6 dimes and 7.4 boards per game.
In their previous meetings earlier this season the Magic won at home with a 102-100 score. Cavaliers have a 9-24 home record, while the Magic are 13-18 on the road. Magic are better both offensively, scoring 106.1 ppg to Cavs’ 103.5 and defensively, allowing 106.7 ppg to Cavs’ 113.6. They also have a better field goal percentage (45.2% to 44.1%), while both teams have almost identical 3-point percentage (35.7% to 35.4%). Both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (12.8 to 12.9), while Magic are better both in boards grabbed (44.7 to 42.8) and in dimes made (235.1 to 20.9). Magic are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -6 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the road win.
