Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cavaliers are into year 2 of their post-LeBron rebuilding era. Love, who will pocket $28.9 million this season, will continue to be the face of the franchise until he gets traded. Overall, expectations are not high for Cleveland. While making the playoffs is already a foregone conclusion, Cavs executives hope this year’s campaign will serve as the platform for their backcourt of the future Collin Sexton and Darius Garland to gel and reach their full potential together.

Players to Watch: Kevin Love (17.0 PPG on 38.5 FG%, 10.9 RPG and 2.2 APG*), Collin Sexton (16.7 PPG on 43.0 FG%, 2.9 RPG and 3.0 APG*)

Orlando Magic Betting

The Magic enter the season with a goal of surpassing their first-round playoff appearance last season. Orlando will be bringing in essentially the same core from the previous years, after retaining All-Star center Nikola Vucevic and veteran swingman Terrence Ross. This team hopes a breakout year from one or two of their young players (Aaron Gordon, Jonathan Isaac, Mo Bamba, and Markelle Fultz) will put them back in playoff contention.

Players to Watch: Nikola Vucevic (20.8 PPG on 51.8 FG%, 12.0 RPG and 3.8 APG*), Aaron Gordon (16.0 PPG on 44.9 FG%, 7.4 RPG and 3.7 APG*)

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Orlando Magic Betting Picks

This is an intriguing game for NBA bettors since the Cavs and Magic are evenly matched. Sure, on paper, Orlando has the better talent and veteran leadership. On the other hand, Cleveland also possesses a top-level offensive firepower that can rival even an elite team if their shots are falling. The trio of Sexton, Garland, and Clarkson can score in bundles, while Love is a steady operator in the paint.

Moneyline: ESPN basketball power index favors the Magic to win at 78.8 percent, but if you are willing to take the risk, then the Cavaliers would be a solid bet to win outright.

ATS: The Cavaliers will cover the spread as a result of stunning the 8-point favorite Magic, giving them their first ATS win of the season. Note that the Cavaliers sport a 4-6 ATS record over the Magic in the last 10 games.

TOTALs: The Cavaliers managed to score at least 109 points in four preseason games while the Magic only failed to reach the century mark once in six preseason matches. In this high-scoring era, breaching a total of 200 points is already normal.

Score Prediction: Cavaliers 118, Magic 114
