Most people thought that Cleveland would win this NBA betting series with relative ease but that is not the case.
The Cavaliers lost home court advantage and now must win a game in Orlando to win this NBA Playoffs betting series.
NBA Playoffs betting should be interesting with the series shifting to Orlando. The Magic were 37-15 at home this season but Cleveland was 27-14 on the road, which was tied for the best road record in the Eastern Conference this season. The Cavaliers will get a lot of action from sportsbook gamblers in this game since most people still expect them to take control of this NBA Playoffs betting series. LeBron James won the MVP award in the league this season and it is still expected that Cleveland will win this NBA Playoffs betting series and make the NBA Finals. The Cavaliers were the top defensive team in the NBA this season as NBA betting statistics tell us and that bodes well for winning on the road. Shutting down an opponent is a big key to getting road wins in NBA Playoffs betting.
Orlando has won 6 of the last 10 home games against the Cavaliers as NBA Playoffs betting numbers indicate. They are only 5-5 against the online sportsbook pointspread in those games however. The teams met twice this season in Orlando and the Magic won both games easily. Orlando won 99-88 back in late January and 116-87 in early April as NBA Playoffs betting information shows. In fact, the Magic have won five of the last six home games against Cleveland as NBA Playoffs betting statistics tell us.
Four of the last six meetings between the two teams in Orlando have gone under the NBA betting total at the sportsbook. The Cavaliers were just a slight under team on the road this year when it came to NBA betting totals. Orlando was a big under team at home though in NBA totals at the online sportsbook so this game on Sunday could be a big defensive battle.
