Magic back on a skid

The Orlando Magic have dropped three straight following a 118-108 loss at home to Milwaukee on Saturday. They are 0-2-1 against the spread in their three losses. Orlando is 19-27 overall, 7-14 on the road, 22-23-1 against the spread and 26-20 with the under.

The Magic have one of the league’s worst offenses, averaging just 103.9 points per game while shooting only 44.7 percent from the field. Defensively, Orlando is giving up 107.9 points per game. The Magic could be without Aaron Gordon today, as he is listed as questionable with a back injury. Gordon is averaging 15.8 points and 7.6 rebounds per contest this year. Nikola Vucevic is leading the team with 20.3 points and 11.9 rebounds per contest.

Hawks flip flopping

Atlanta is coming off a 113-105 loss at home to Boston on Saturday. The Hawks have alternated wins and losses over their last five games and alternated covers over their last six. The Hawks are 14-31 on the season, 8-12 at home, 20-25 against the spread and 24-21 with the over.

The Hawks have the league’s worst defense, as Atlanta is giving up 117.7 points per game while opponents shoot 47.3 percent against them. Offensively, Atlanta is scoring 109.8 points per game while shooting 45 percent from the floor. John Collins has been leading the team with 19 points and 10.4 rebounds per game while rookie Trae Young is adding 16 points and 7.2 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Orlando

The Magic are 0-5 against the spread in their last five road games and just 1-5 ATS in their last six Monday games.

Atlanta

The Hawks are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven following a failed cover and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 against Southeast Division teams.

Prediction:

These teams haven’t met this season, but the home team has won six straight between these two and I like the home team today. If Gordon can’t play, that just adds to that as he is a big piece of what Orlando does and has been playing well lately. The Hawks have shown more consistency in recent weeks than the Magic and Atlanta puts up 112 per game at home while Orlando averages just 101.5 on the road.

NBA Prediction: Atlanta Hawks +1
