Re: Tips and Trends April 5

Orlando (47-28, 45-27-3 ATS) at Cleveland (42-34, 35-41 ATS)

Two Eastern Conference playoff teams square off in this one when the Magic visit the Quicken Loans Arena to take on the Cavaliers.

Orlando has been in a funk lately, dropping four of its last six (2-3-1 ATS), including Tuesday’s 98-97 home loss to the Hornets, pushing as one-point home ‘dogs. The Magic have had three days off since that loss, but they are just 2-2-1 ATS after having a three-day break this year.

Cleveland has also lost four of its last six (1-5 ATS), including an embarrassing 101-98 home loss to the Bulls on Thursday as 7½-point favorites. The Cavaliers were outscored 24-13 in the fourth-quarter, blowing a 17-point lead to the lowly Bulls.

The Magic are 5-2 SU (6-1 ATS) in the last seven meetings with the Cavaliers, and that includes a 104-90 win two weeks ago at home as 6½-point favorites and a 117-116 overtime win in Cleveland on Nov. 14 as a three-point pup. In fact, Stan Van Gundy’s squad has won its last two trips to Cleveland and is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 on the Cavs’ home court.

Orlando is 28-13-2 ATS in its last 43 road games. The Magic are also on ATS streaks of 4-1-1 against Central Division teams, 27-9-1 following a SU loss and 37-18-1 on Saturdays.

The Cavs have dropped two of their last three at Quicken Loans Arena (0-3 ATS), and they are just 1-6 ATS in their last seven at home against teams with a winning road mark and 1-4 ATS in their last five against the Eastern Conference.

The under is on runs for Orlando of 5-2 overall, 5-1 on the road and 4-1 against the Eastern Conference. For the Cavs, the under is on streaks of 5-1 on Saturdays, 8-2 at home, 7-3 after a non-cover and 6-1 when playing on one day of rest.

ATS ADVANTAGE: ORLANDO and UNDER


Atlanta (35-41, 35-40-1 ATS) at Philadelphia (39-37, 42-31-3 ATS)

Just 24 hours removed from a 109-104 Sixers victory in Atlanta, these two teams go at it again, only this time inside the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia built a 28-19 first-quarter lead Friday night and held on for the win in a pick-em contest. The Sixers improved to 13-4 since March 1 (12-5 ATS) and have played their way into a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Atlanta had a five-game winning streak snapped last night, but the Hawks are still 9-4 SU in their last 13. However, they’re just 4-5 ATS in their last nine, though they did score a 116-99 win in Memphis on Monday as three-point favorites in their most recent outing on the highway.

Atlanta still leads the season series 2-1, getting an 88-79 road win on Dec. 3 as 3½-point ‘dogs and then scoring a 96-91 win and a push as a five-point home chalk. The Hawks are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five head-to-head meetings. Finally, the underdog has been the play in this series of late, going 4-0-1 ATS in the last five clashes.

Philly is 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six home games, with the only loss coming March 28 to the Suns, 107-93 as 3½-point ‘dogs. Maurice Cheeks’ team is on ATS runs of 23-8-1 overall, 12-4 at home and 36-15 on Saturdays.

Atlanta has stepped up its offense lately, averaging 115.6 points on 51.8 percent shooting in its last five outings, better than 17 points more than the Hawks have averaged for the season. However, the Hawks are just 5-13 ATS in their last 18 as a road ‘dog.

For the Hawks, the over is on runs of 6-0 overall, 11-4 as a road underdog, 4-1 on the second night of back-to-backs and 10-3 against teams with a winning home record. The over is also 9-2 in the Sixers’ last 11 games on no days’ rest and 5-2 in their last seven Saturday affairs. However, the under is 9-4 in Philly’s last 13 at the Wachovia Center.

ATS ADVANTAGE: PHILADELPHIA
