Magic vs Cavaliers Series Winner Pick: Cavaliers

There is solid value with the Cavaliers at -190 with our sportsbook, as they have more big-game experience.

There are no easy games when playing the talented Magic, but Orlando’s lack of experience could play against it in the playoffs.

Having the likes of Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland is invaluable for the Cavaliers. Mitchell has good playoff experience, which is why the Cavaliers are picked to win with sport betting markets.

Having home-court advantage is another reason why betting markets have the Cavaliers favored. They are 26-15 at home, which is a respectable record.


Magic vs Cavaliers Total Games Pick: Over 5½ (-200)

We see the series going to a Game 6 or Game 7, so we’re backing over 5½ games.

It should be a close series since the teams split four regular-season games.

The Cavaliers won the first meeting before the Magic evened it up. The trend continued when trading games earlier this year, and the final meeting was a 116-109 win to Orlando on the road.

It could come down to Game 7 in Cleveland, where we would give the home side the clear edge.

NBA prop odds are available on a wide range of markets, so shop around and include the over in your picks.



Magic vs Cavaliers Series Player Prop Pick: Donovan Mitchell Top Scorer (-160)

Look no further than Cleveland’s Mitchell for top points scorer. He averaged 26.6 points and we can’t see any player topping him.

He’s a well-backed commodity, which isn’t surprising, but he’s worth including in selections. Mitchell is the most dynamic player in the series, and bettors could reap the rewards.

There is good value available with betting online markets, so expect big things from the Cavaliers leader, starting with Game 1 on Saturday.
