Eastern Conference Finals kick off with Cleveland hosting Orlando

Orland Magic vs. Cleveland Cavaliers -9: Last night, the Western Conference Finals got off to a great start with an exciting nail-biter that saw L.A. overtake an inspired Denver squad in the waning moments. We should be in store for an equally exciting start in the East as Orlando proved their skill and determination in ousting defending champs Boston. Cleveland hasn’t played in over a week, while the Magic finished up a tough seven-game series with the Celtics on Sunday. But, don’t expect Orlando to be sluggish. They have plenty of fresh, young legs on their squad, and they should be ready to go after Cleveland. Keep in mind that Orlando split the season series, and they’ve gotten better in the playoffs. The spread is simply too much for a game like this and expect Cleveland to be somewhat rusty in draining baskets. Orlando +9.
