The Hawks are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest. The home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the under is 41-18 in the last 59 meetings. The over is 9-4 in Magic last 13 overall. The over is 5-2 in Hawks last 7 overall.
The Orlando Magic are coming off a late game Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks and could be in for a letdown spot. If anything, we could see some tired legs from the Magic with a quick turnaround. The home team has won six of the last seven meetings between the Magic and Hawks. The Hawks are also playing better basketball than the results suggest, as Collins and Young are really starting to put things together. This game could truly go either way, so I'll take the free bucket with the home team.
