NBA Basketball Free Picks – Red-Hot Magic Host Cavaliers
San Antonio Spurs (- 8) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (+ 8)
While the Cleveland Cavaliers, (38-29 SU, 32-35 ATS, 33-32-2 O/U), are still trying to find their way after a franchise-altering trade that saw six players leave the team and are being almost literally carried by superstar LeBron James, the Orlando Magic, (44-24 SU, 42-24-2 ATS, 33-33-2 O/U), are in the process of putting the pedal to the metal as the postseason quickly approaches.
The Magic have won four straight and eight of ten in the Top Sportsbooks.com Sportsbook coming into this contest including a 122-111 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, while the Cavaliers have gone a solid 6-4 in their last ten and beat the Charlotte Bobcats 98-91 on Sunday to snap a two-game losing streak.
James – the NBA’s scoring leader at 30.9 points per game – scored 33 points against the Bobcats and took over down the stretch, willing his team to victory with several clutch plays over the suddenly competitive Bobcats.
The Cavaliers are currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference and trying to secure home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Orlando got another fine performance from swingman Hedo Turkoglu against the Pacers as Turkoglu scored 27 points and Rashard Lewis added 22.
“I wouldn’t say it was a great offensive night because we handled the ball very poorly,” said Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy. “We were able to survive because we shot the ball so well.”
Here is a look at tonight’s Key Trends, followed by my analysis and NBA Betting Picks.
The Cavaliers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Southeast.
The Cavaliers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest.
The Magic are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
The Magic are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 home games.
The Over is 4-0 in Cavaliers last 4 road games.
The Over is 6-0 in Magic last 6 Monday games.
The Over is 10-3-1 in the last 14 meetings in Orlando.
The Over is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.
Analysis: Despite the fact that the Magic are a better team and will be playing at home tonight, I like the Cleveland Cavaliers to cover the spread in a losing effort, as LeBron James gives his team a decent shot to win by keeping it close until the very end.
