The Orlando Magic need a big win after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 99.2 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 100.8 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 16.6 points and 8.8 rebounds while Victor Oladipo is averaging 14.4 points and four assists.

The Hawks are 2-7-2 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Magic are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference. The Hawks are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Orlando.
I'm not sure what's going on with the Magic but it's getting old and even tougher to back this team that was once money ATS. You have to side with the Hawks as more of a fade from Orlando. This young Magic team has clearly lost their way for whatever reason.
