NBA Pick

Orlando Magic vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Tuesday, April 30, 2024 – 08:00 PM ET at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse

The Orlando Magic climbed back into the playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers with two home wins of their own. The home team has now won all four games in this series. The AI Model believes that the trend will continue. It’s got the Cavaliers winning 104-99 in tonight’s showdown.

Orlando’s Defense Isn’t as Good on the Road

The Orlando Magic have been terrific defensively in the first four games of this series. The Cavaliers haven’t scored more than 103.2 points per 100 possessions in any of the three games.

However, the Cavaliers managed about 102-103 points per 100 possessions in their home games and just about 92 points per 100 possessions in their road games. Back at home, the Cavaliers should have a better offensive output in Game 5.

Drastic Difference Offensively For Magic, Too

The Magic scored 121 and 112 in back-to-back wins against the Cavaliers at home. However, on the road, the Magic scored no more than 86 points in either game and shot about a 40% effective field goal percentage combined in the first two games.

That won’t get the job done.

The Pick

We’ll side with the AI Model. Let’s take the Cavaliers at -195 on the moneyline.
