The Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic meet Friday in summer league NBA action at the Pavilion. Here’s a Cleveland Cavaliers vs Orlando Magic Prediction. This article will include a Cleveland Cavaliers vs Orlando Magic Pick.

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Preview

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be coached by assistant coach Jordan Ott. The Cavs roster will be led by returning players Craig Porter Jr., Luke Travers, Emory Bates and Pete Nance. Porter will be key to the Cavs success considering he played in 51 games last year and had 6 starts. This will also be the first time the Cavs get a look at this year's draft pick in Jaylon Tyson, who was the 20th overall selection. The Cavs also have NC State star DJ Burns, who led the Wolfpack on an improbable run in last season's NCAA Tournament. 

Orlando Magic Betting Preview

The Orlando Magic will be coached by Lionel Chalmers. This Magic roster will be led by Anthony Black, Jett Howard and this year's first round pick Tristan da Silva. Black started 33 games for the Magic last season while playing in 69 games overall. Howard played in 18 games last season and was the 11th overall pick in last year's NBA Draft. Xavier Moon is also on this Magic roster, a 29-year-old who played in 28 games for the Clippers over 3 seasons. Jay Huff also hopes he can finally find a home after playing for the Lakers, Wizards, and Nuggets over the course of his career.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Orlando Magic Prediction

The Orlando Magic should have the edge entering this summer league game when you consider the amount of experience on the roster. Black and Howard played in NBA games last season, while Moon and others have played multiple seasons in the NBA. The Cleveland Cavaliers are a little more wet behind the ears and could struggle against guys who are probably a little too experienced for these sorts of events. For guys like Huff, this could easily be their last chance to get attention from NBA teams. We're not laying much. Give me the Magic and the small chalk.
