Cavs vs Magic

Rotation # 570
Cavs -3.5 over Magic (loss)
Orlando won both meetings this year. Both teams are really struggling, but this Orlando team dumped just about everyone at the trade deadline and is dealing with injuries. Cleveland really needs a win at home against a bad team that has not played together as a unit for more than a few games. I know it’s hard to predict which teams are in tank mode, but this would not be a good look for Cleveland to not get a home win and allow the Magic to sweep them. Take Cleveland.

Rotation # 907
Phillies -105 over Cardinals (win)
At even money we will go with the guy who has pitched more innings in his career. Johan Oviedo has spent a lot of time in the minors and walks a lot of batters. Ovideo has to prove he is a high volume strikeout pitcher on this stage before he can be worth this price. Vince Velasquez has not been sharp this year, but I believe he still a better pitcher than Oviedo so we will roll with Philadelphia at this price. Take the Phillies.
