Magic vs. Cavaliers Prediction & Pick
Luckily for the Magic, the Cavaliers will be incredibly shorthanded on Thursday. Donovan Mitchell, Darius Garland, Evan Mobley, Caris LeVert, Isaac Okero, and Jarrett Allen have all been ruled out for tonight's game due to injuries or rest, so Cleveland will be missing its entire starting lineup.
With the Cavaliers' playoff seeding already secure, they don't have anything to play for here. Neither do the Magic, but at least they're still playing for pride and their home fans in what will be their final home game of the season.
The question isn't whether Orlando will win, but by how much? All signs point to a blowout here with the Magic winning by double digits.
Final Score Prediction: Magic: 114 | Cavaliers: 93
Magic vs. Cavaliers Best Bet
Tuesday's loss notwithstanding, the Magic have been dominant at home lately, winning five of their last six on their home court. Four of those wins came by double digits, so Orlando should have no problem beating the depleted Cavs by double digits as well in their home finale.
Bet: Orlando Magic -10 (-110)
