Magic vs Cavs

Pretty unbelievable that less than two weeks ago Cleveland was odds on favorite to win the Eastern Conference Championship. Since then they have been dominated in every aspect and now are down 3-1 to the Orlando Magic. Craig had given a free sports pick in game one that Orlando might not lose against the spread in this series and so far his prediction has come true. Only one miracle shot in game two from Lebron James has kept Orlando Magic from sweeping the heavily favored Cavaliers.

Oddsmakers have made the adjustment in this series and now game five in Cleveland sees the Cavs as a -4 point favorite. That is a huge adjustment from game one and two when the Cavs were favored by -10 in game one and -8 in game two. The sharp sports handicappers and public has been all over Orlando Magic in this series but the majority of the public has been placing heavy money ATS on Cleveland. Sportsbooks have really cleaned up in this series with over 60% of the public has bet on the Cavs ATS in this series.

Orlando Magic has made Cleveland's league leading defense look very poor so far in this series. Most predicted that this series would be a ton of under totals but thus far the over is 3-1 and the only loss was under by one point. Now the series is going back to Cleveland where they usually play much better defense it will be interesting to see how high the listed total will be. If Orlando wins you have to love the over as every game they have one the over has won easily.

Cleveland will win game 5 to keep this series interesting but would be surprised if they win against the spread. This year Orlando is 5-2 straight up against Cleveland but an even better 7-0 ATS. Pretty hard to go against the hot trend but either way can't wait to see if Orlando can finish off one of the bigger upsets in recent NBA Playoff history.
