The Orlando Magic and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Friday in NBA action at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

The Orlando Magic look to stay hot after winning four of their last five games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 103.5 points on 43.5 percent shooting and allowing 103.4 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Evan Fournier is averaging 19.8 points and three rebounds while Nikola Vucevic is averaging 17.1 points and 11.6 rebounds. Jonathan Isaac is the third double-digit scorer and Aaron Gordon is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 77.9 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.8 rebounds per game. The Orlando Magic have lost seven of their last nine road games.

The Cleveland Cavaliers need a win after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 104.2 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 112.8 points on 48.6 percent shooting. Colin Sexton is averaging 18.1 points and 2.5 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 16.7 points and 10.7 rebounds.

The Magic are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 8-23 ATS in their last 31 Friday games. The Cavaliers are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games playing on 2 days rest, 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 Friday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog. The over is 5-1 in Magic last 6 road games. The under is 5-2 in Cavaliers last 7 home games. The Magic are 8-18-1 ATS in the last 27 meetings. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Cleveland and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Orlando Magic are playing their best ball of the season right now, so I expect their road struggles to go away as well when playing lesser teams. The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost 10 of their last 11, but they're also being outscored by an average of 10 points in their last five games and 8.1 points at home this year overall. There's no value in backing the Cavs in their current form. I'll lay the bucket with th recently improved Orlando Magic.
