Basketball betting on Friday has the Cleveland Cavaliers hosting the Orlando Magic in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Basketball odds heavily favor the Cavaliers in this matchup that can be seen on TNT television.
Basketball betting on Cleveland has been very popular since the Cavaliers have been great in the playoffs. The Cavaliers have been almost unbeatable at home this season versus the basketball betting number. The one thing that is cause for concern for gamblers who like the Cavaliers in basketball betting is Orlando’s success against the Cavaliers. Orlando has played very well in recent seasons against Cleveland. The worst loss the Cavaliers had all season came to Orlando back in April.
The Magic struggled to get past an injured Boston team but they matchup better against the Cavaliers than they did against Boston. The difference in this series is likely to be league MVP LeBron James who has taken over games on a regular basis. The Magic have Dwight Howard but he doesn’t take over a game the way that LeBron does. For the Magic to ultimately win this series they would have to win at least one game in Cleveland and the odds just don’t favor that happening.
Before Wednesday’s game, the Magic were 5-0 against the basketball odds in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland. The Magic are 10-1 against the basketball betting pointspread in the last 11 meetings versus the Cavaliers. The underdog in this basketball betting series has also done well going 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
Orlando has been a good road underdog of late going 15-6 against the basketball betting odds. Cleveland has been a very good favorite going 18-4-1 against the basketball odds in their last 23 playoff games as a favorite.
Looking at the basketball betting total we see that the Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland between the two teams. The Under is 22-8 in Orlando’s last 30 overall as basketball betting statistics indicate, and 4-1 vs. the basketball odds total in the Cavaliers last 5 vs. the Southeast Division. The Under is 16-5-1 in the Cavaliers last 22 games as a home favorite. That makes sense considering Cleveland had the best defense in the NBA this season.
