Winning a championship is a lot like climbing Mount Everest in that it can be a long arduous trek to the top, with numerous hazards and potential pitfalls to endure along the way. Most teams fall into those crevasses at some point during the season, but the one that can successfully navigate them is the one that will get to savor the view from the top. Two teams that represent both ends of this spectrum meet on Sunday, here are their online NBA betting odds and our obvious pick for the game:

Online NBA Betting Analysis and Game Preview

The Cleveland Cavaliers are starting to make everyone believe that they might just be the team that reaches the summit this season. That is particularly astounding when you look at the first half that they delivered. This was a team that lacked cohesion of any kind, and they were essentially written off by many a basketball pundit. That first half seems a long way off now, as the cavaliers are now one of the hottest teams in basketball, with no sign of that fire being extinguished anytime soon. What is even more concerning for all of the other teams in the East right now is that the Cavs are not just the King James show. Proof of that can be found by watching how Kyrie Irving put up an astonishing 57 points against the reigning champions in a 128-125 OT win on Thursday night. Their next games versus the Orlando magic appears, on paper at least, to be a little less taxing. If we are to continue with the Everest analogy, it would be more than fair to say that the Magic haven’t even set up their base camp yet. With just 21 wins on the season, Orlando finds themselves down with the cellar dwellers in the East. The have lost their last 2 games and are just 4-6 in their last 10, which all adds up to no sign of any kind of ascent showing up in the near future. Having home court advantage for the Sunday game versus Cleveland does not even seem that important, as Orlando are just 11-21 in the cozy confines of the Amway Center.
