NBA Betting Odds: Magic starts playoffs as underdog vs. Cavaliers – Sports Illustrated


CLEVELAND – The Orlando Magic are set to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday afternoon at RocketMortgage Fieldhouse.

This is the Magic’s first time in the playoffs since 2020, when the league held its playoffs at Disney’s Wide World of Sports after COVID pushed the season back several months.

Coming into the game, the Magic shouldn’t win. According to SI Sportsbook, the Magic are 5.5-point underdogs against the Cavs just before tipoff.

The Magic have a great history against the spread. They are the only team in the NBA this season to win more than 60% of their games against the spread with 51 victories. Meanwhile, the Cavs are just under .500 at 38-42-2 this year.

The Magic will face the Cavs in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Saturday at 1 p.m. ET at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
