Over/Under Pick – Over 215½
Our NBA expert picks have over 215½ as a solid play for the Cavaliers vs Magic.
Despite only 198 points being scored in their most recent meeting, these teams are good enough to produce enough offense.
The Cavaliers scored 135 points against the Bucks last week, so that’s evidence of how high-powered their offense can be.
Orlando hasn’t been shooting well, but it’s overdue a better offensive game, so lock in the line before it potentially moves.
ATS Pick – Cavaliers -1½
Winning seven games on the bounce didn’t look likely for the Cavaliers earlier this season, but they have turned on the jets.
Donovan Mitchell continues to dominate with 27.8 points per game, and we expect him to continue his impression form.
Orlando’s recent form has been uninspiring, and although it started off well, the young NBA side is coming back to earth. Therefore, we’re backing the Cavaliers to cover the spread and win outright.
Player Prop Pick – Jarrett Allen Over 11½ Rebounds (-118)
Jarrett Allen averages 10.2 rebounds per game, so he only needs a couple more for bettors to cash with betting online markets.
We think the Magic will put up a lot of shots, which means more chances for Allen to grab the rebounds.
He stands out with prop betting markets as a value wager, and with his 3.4 offensive rebounds per game, he also gives the Cavaliers second-chance opportunities.
