The Cavaliers and Magic close out a two-game series on Wednesday in Orlando, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

The game tips off at 7:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on Fox Sports Ohio (CLE) and Fox Sports Florida (ORL).

The Magic (5-2) snapped a two-game losing streak with a 103-83 win over the Cavaliers on Monday, while the Cavs (4-3) have now lost three out of the lost four games.

Injury report

The Cavs be without starting guard Darius Garland for the next week due to a shoulder sprain. The Cavs will also be without Kevin Love, Matthew Dellavedova, Dante Exum, Kevin Porter Jr. and Dylan Windler. Michael Carter-Williams, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jonathan Isaac and Chuma Okeke are all out for the Magic, while Evan Fournier is questionable with back spasms.

Advice and prediction

The Cavaliers have not broken 100 points in their last four games, averaging 91 points per game in that span, and have come in under 214.5 in four of their last five games. The Magic have come in under 214.5 in each of their last three games. I’m going to ride the trend and take the Under 214.5 here.

I’m also taking the chalk, with Magic -5.5. Aaron Gordon broke out of his shooting slump in their last game, and while I expect the Cavs to shoot above 38 percent from the field to keep this one a bit closer, they will be clearly missing Darius Garland’s offense.

Prediction: Magic 111, Cavs 95
