It’s another stacked day and night of action and once again our handicappers are here to set you on the path to success. Check out some of our best bets for the Saturday slate of NBA Odds!

Cavaliers vs. Magic

Despite losing Kyle Korver for the next week and still being without Kevin Love, the Cavaliers are bound to get back on track soon. This team is too talented and now they have their easiest game in a long time.

The Cavs play the Magic tonight as -9 NBA Odds favorites and the Magic are coming off a game last night where the Hornets demolished them by nearly 40 points. Obviously we can expect the Magic to play a little better tonight now that they are at home and going against the defending champs, but the Magic are also not a great basketball team.

They could once again be without Nikola Vucevic tonight, but even if he plays that won’t affect my play on this one. Instead of laying the nine points with the Cavaliers, a better play might be a teaser, which could move the Cavaliers down to -4.

That is the easy part, the total of 213 ½ has been dropping like a rock since it opened and while it may not have much under value left on it, teasing it back up to 218 ½ is going to be a fine under play tonight along with Cavaliers -4.

The Magic have cashed the under at 6-1 in their last seven home games dating back to before the break and with the Cavaliers down their two of their three best outside shooters, I’m not too concerned about a three-point barrage from them here on the road.

 Wizards vs. Blazers

It took overtime for the Wizards to down the Kings last night and now here on no rest they have to keep their West Coast trip alive tonight in Portland. As I mentioned yesterday in our winning over play on the Wizards, Washington has been playing a lot faster over their last five games.

They are playing at a pace of more than 103 in their last five games and they have cashed the over in all five of them. Now here on no rest where they are 10-2 cashing the over this season and I love the over once again against the poor defense in Portland.

So far this season Washington is 19-10 cashing the over on the road and in those 29 games they have played at a pace of more than 100 possessions per 48 minutes. With their faster play over the last week and a half, the sportsbooks are still not recognizing the new-look and faster Wizards. Pound the bookie tonight with the over.
