Both of these teams are coming off games last night and the Magic offense looks completely out of sync to start the season. They scored nine points in the second quarter yesterday and now face an even tougher defensive opponent in Cleveland. This one might see both teams fall below 100 points and with a total of 204, the under is a fantastic NBA pick.


    Orlando Magic vs Cleveland Cavaliers 

The Magic pulled off something I have not seen in a while, and that usually don't see in the professional game. Orlando scored nine points in the second quarter of their game last night in route to only 82 points against the Pistons. Detroit is not a bad defensive team, but the Cavs are even better. 

With both teams coming off the back to back, one has to expect this to be a sloppier game than usual. Both of these teams were in low-scoring and slow-moving games just last night and that is not going to help the offense for this one. So far, even though the season is young, these two teams are playing pretty slow paces. Frank Vogel played slow last season and it cost him his job in Indiana, but this season he is doing the same thing in Orlando, posting the 25th ranked pace at 95.3 possessions per 48 minutes.

This is only going to go down and their offensive rating of only 93.4 points per 100 possessions is pretty horrible to start the season. The Magic already don't have many options on offense, but the slow pace and going against one of the league's best defenses is going to lead to a nice under play here. The total has already dropped four points, but there is still value at the NBA Odds of 204.
