(17-51) Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic (31-37)
Orlando is in the enviable position of potentially getting into the playoffs without achieving a winning record. They are a game behind Miami though so every game counts.
Cleveland got a surprise win over Toronto. Not only did they win they actually looked pretty good doing so. There have not been too many of those.
The success of the Cavs at home against Toronto could not be sustained on the road against Philly. Still they kept that one close.
Kevin Love is an All-Star level player so it should not be a surprise that the Cavaliers are better with him in the fold. He did not play against Philly but it looks like it was just rest.
They are going to be a little shorthanded on the front line for this one. Marquess Chriss has been suspended and Larry Nance is questionable. Orlando’s strength is up front.
Collin Sexton seems to be getting more and more comfortable in the NBA. He has put up back to back to back 20+ point games and is shooting 40% from three on the season.
This is a meaningless game for Cleveland but they all are at this point. The Cavs are really tough to peg from game to game but have been more competitive of late.
As this is being written Orlando has yet to play its game at Washington on Wednesday night. Oddly, that game is more meaningful than expected and if the Magic lose it this one is even more of a must win affair.
Cleveland is not great but they are at least healthy now. The same cannot be said for Orlando. They are likely without Aaron Gordon. He might be an overall disappointment for his career but he is the second leading scorer and rebounder for Orlando.
I am not a fan of the Magic but I am a fan of Nikola Vucevic, he is having his best season yet at 20ppg and 12rpg. They need him to dominate his matchup because at other spots Orlando does not have a lot of obvious advantages.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
You have to think Orlando gets the nod as the favourite at home but they are far from inspiring.
Both of these teams are going to be on back to backs so the quality of play is unlikely to be crisp.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I would say look at the Cavs or the under in this one. Don’t watch it on TV. Find a college game someplace else. The Madness is already happening.
