The Cleveland Cavaliers are getting pushed around by the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals and the NBA's best team during the regular season suddenly looks very beatable. The Orlando Magic will try and take a 3-1 lead in the series as they host the Cavaliers in Game 4 on Tuesday night.

SBG Global reports that early NBA betting has the public taking Cavaliers on the Road.

The Cavaliers should be really concerned because they could easily be down 3-0 in this series if not for LeBron James' last second shot in Game 2.  James had 41 points in Game 3 but didn't shoot the ball well and his teammates were even worse.  Orlando didn't shoot the ball well either but they did enough to win.  And they also are winning the physical battle against Cleveland in a series dominated by fouls. "We just need to man up," James said. "Orlando is a very, very good team."  The Magic made 19 of 23 free throws in the fourth quarter to hand Cleveland another loss in this series." We just kept fighting. That's what we got to do, we fight to the end," Orlando's Dwight Howard said, "We can't worry about nothing, we can't worry about the calls, can't worry about nobody else. We just got to get out there and play."

The Cavaliers can't win this series now without winning a game in Orlando where they have lost six of their last seven. "They create so many matchup problems for us," Cleveland's Mo Williams said. "I know it. They know it. Everybody knows it."

Here are the NBA betting stats for Tuesday's game. The Cavaliers are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 games as a favorite. The Cavaliers are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 vs. the Southeast. The Cavaliers are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Orlando.

The Magic are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog. The Magic are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. the Central.

SBG Global Current Line: Cavaliers -  1.5  ,  Total  187.5

The Over is 5-1 in the Cavaliers last 6 Conference Finals games. The Under is 7-3 in the Cavaliers last 10 overall. The Under is 5-2 in Orlando's last 7 overall. The Under is 27-11 in Orlando's last 38 home games. The Under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Orlando between the two teams.
