Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Orlando Magic vs Cleveland Cavaliers 12/6/2019 – The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to snap their four-game losing skid as they play host to the Orlando Magic on Friday, December 6, at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland Ohio. The match will be televised live on Fox Sports Ohio and streamed on NBA League Pass and SofaScore. The Cavaliers will look to take advantage of a Magic team that have been without their starting center Nikola Vucevic. However, it is easier said than done for the Cavaliers as Orlando were able to hold it together despite the absence of their top man in the paint. NBA odds favor the undermanned Magic to secure the victory over the healthier Cavaliers.

Orlando Magic vs Cleveland Cavaliers 12/6/2019 Betting Odds
Orlando Magic Betting
Orlando (10-11, 2-7 away) are currently in second in the Southeast Division behind Miami Heat and are holding the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference standings. What is very amazing about the Magic so far this season is their ability to win games despite missing the services of double-double machine Vucevic due to a right lateral ankle sprain and veteran Al-Farouq Aminu (torn meniscus-right knee). Orlando has won three straight – and four of its last five games – and leading the charge is French shooting guard Evan Fournier. The 6-foot-7 guard averaged 26.6 points in that stretch and shot well from the field with a 54.1% clip. Also chipping in for the Orlando attack is Aaron Gordon, who lifted the Magic to a 14-point victory in their last outing. Gordon scored a season-high 32 points for the Steve Clifford-mentored squad on Wednesday to help the team improve their record to 10-11.
Players to Watch: E. Fournier SG (19.8 PPG, 3 RPG, 3.3 APG, 1 SPG); J. Isaac (12.6 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 2.7 BPG); A. Gordon PF (13.8 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 2.9 APG).
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
Cleveland Cavaliers (5-15, 3-8 home) have continued to struggle after LeBron James and Kyrie Irving left the squad. The John Beilein-mentored squad have lost their last four outings by an average margin of 14 points. Second-year point guard Collin Sexton has been able to lead the Cavs in offense in the first 20 games this season. The Alabama product has normed 18.1 points and is solid at the backcourt spot for the Cavs. Another vital cog for Cleveland are veterans Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson, who have both averaged in double-doubles in points and rebounds in the ongoing 2019-20 NBA regular season. Not to forget Jordan Clarkson, who also averaged in double-digits in points and leads the bench mob for the Cavs.
Players to Watch: C. Sexton PG 18.1 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 2.5 APG); K. Love PF (16.7 PPG, 10.7 RPG, 2.8 APG); J. Clarkson PG (14 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 2.5 APG); T. Thompson C (13.9 PPG, 10.6 RPG, 2.2 APG).
