Live Odds for Magic at Cavs (Game 7)

Just as we saw in Game 5, oddsmakers have opened with Cleveland a 3.5-point favorite at home over Orlando in Game 7. This isn't all that surprising, as most books will give the home team around 2 points for home court advantage.

The total in this pivotal game is currently sitting at 195.5. Game 5 went over the total, but just by 3.5 points. Game 6 needed a flurry of points in the final minute to go over this line of 195.5.

Both teams were considered Under squads during the regular season, but not by much. We think both of these teams come out tight in Game 7 andstruggle to reach this total.

Best Bet: Under 196.5

In case you haven't noticed, I'm quite fond of playing unders in Game 7s. The added pressure really does affect the shooting of both teams, especially earlier on in the games.

Both teams played to a much slower pace in Games 1 and 2 in Cleveland, and it wouldn't surprise me if that's how this deciding game pans out. Sure, Game 5 in Cleveland went Over, but it was only by a hair. Something tells me we might see some tired legs in this one, which should lead to lots of bricks.

Need some supporting trends to pull the trigger on this Under? Cleveland is 27-24 to the Under with only 1 day of rest. Orlando is 34-18 to the Under when they have just 1 day of rest.

Jalen Suggs Under 13.5 Points

The Magic won all 3 of their games at home to send the series tied heading back to Cleveland for Game 7. Jalen Suggs has been a key role player for this Magic squad, but he's seems to struggle a little bit on the road.

Suggs hits just 38.3% of his shots on the highway, compared to 41% at home. The former Gonzaga Bulldog has stayed under this point total in 4 out of his last 5 games. Look for Donovan Mitchell to amp up the defensive intensity on Suggs since this is a Game 7 at home for Cleveland.

During the regular season, Suggs scored 13 points or less in 41 of his 75 ball games. That's good enough for a 54.67% winning percentage. Take the Under!

Donovan Mitchell Over 27.5 Points

The Cavs have a shot to reach the conference semifinals in the Donovan Mitchell era on Sunday. If Cleveland wants to close out this series, they are going to need a big performance from their superstar shooting guard.

Mitchell has been up and down throughout this series, only hitting this line in two out of six games despite a 30 point performance from him in Game 1. That being said, I'm betting Mitchell comes up big on his home floor in this one!

The 6’3" guard is known to show up in these close out games, hitting at least 25 points in 4 out of the 6 games in his career, and scoring 30 or more in four of them. Mitchell also went over this total in 31 of his 55 regular season games. Let's ride the Over on one of the NBA's brightest stars.
