The Cavaliers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
I'm not all that high on the Orlando Magic, but they've been the better team this season in a limited sample size, and they just beat the Cavs by 20 points despite neither team shooting the ball well. The Cleveland Cavaliers have cooled off rather quickly and that should surprise nobody. The Cavs aren't a talented roster and are going to have trouble winning consistently. I'll lay the chalk with the Magic based on how the first meeting between these clubs went.
