NBA odds on Wednesday have the Cleveland Cavaliers favored against the Orlando Magic in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Cavaliers have home court advantage in this 7-game series and they are better than a 6-1 favorite in NBA betting to win this series.
NBA odds have Cleveland a nine point favorite in Game 1 with a total of 184.5. Game 1 on Wednesday can be seen on TNT television and the Cavaliers will be a popular choice for gamblers who wager on NBA odds. The Cavaliers almost never lose at home so they are a deserving favorite in NBA betting. The trends though are in favor of Orlando when it comes to NBA odds. The Magic have won eight of the past eleven games against Cleveland and they are 3-1 in their last four games in Cleveland as NBA odds stats show.
This NBA betting series will be focused on two superstar players. The Cavaliers have LeBron James while the Magic have Dwight Howard. The supporting cast might be better for Cleveland though. The Cavaliers have a number of players with experience including Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Anderson Vaerjao who played in the NBA Finals two years ago. Ilgauskas will be have the task of handling Howard and that should be interesting to watch
If the Magic are to win this series in NBA odds they will need either Rashard Lewis or Hedo Turkoglu to step up and support Howard. Lewis has a favorable matchup and it could be time for him to shine in this NBA betting series.
