NBA Pick

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic

Friday, May 03, 2024 – 7:00 PM ET at Kia Center

The home team has won every matchup between the Cavaliers and Magic in this first-round series, and the AI Model believes that will continue when the Magic host the Cavaliers in Game 6 of the NBA first-round playoff matchup.

Orlando’s Defense Ready To Shine

The Magic have been above-average defensively on the road. However, at home, the Magic have absolutely shut down the Cavaliers.

Orlando has allowed no more than 92.8 points per 100 possessions in either home game of this series. That’ll go a long way in earning a victory against the Cavaliers in Game 6 to force a Game 7.

Cleveland’s Defense Struggles On The Road

While Orlando’s been dominant defensively in the Kia Center, the Cavaliers have been awful. In those same two games, the Cavaliers have allowed at least 124.1 points per 100 possessions and have given up more than a 60% effective field goal percentage.

The Pick

The Magic have everything going for them heading into Game 6 of this series. I’m siding with the AI Model and rolling with the Magic at -3.5.

NBA Pick: Magic -3.5 (-110) at Bet365
