Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic bounced back from a lopsided 122-106 loss to Denver with a scintillating win over the Brooklyn Nets, 115-113, on Monday. Aaron Gordon led the charge with 27 points and 10 rebounds while Nikola Vucevic posted 16 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross also fired for 21 apiece as the Magic shot 49 percent from the field.

Players to Watch: Nikola Vucevic (19.1 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 3.7 APG)

Evan Fournier (18.9 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 3.1 APG)

Aaron Gordon (14.3 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 3.2 APG)

Atlanta Hawks Betting

After toppling a pair of playoff contenders, the Atlanta Hawks found out that the Philadelphia 76ers were a different animal. Trae Young had another outstanding game with 28 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists but his all-around effort wasn’t enough to beat the Sixers, 129-112. Nevertheless, the Hawks got a solid game from their frontline duo of the future as John Collins and DeAndre Hunter recorded 21 and 22 points, respectively.

Players to Watch: Trae Young (29.9 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 9.2 APG)

John Collins (20.8 PPG, 10.3 RPG, 1.4 APG)

DeAndre Hunter (12.5 PPG, 4.1 RPG and 1.8 APG)

Orlando Magic vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks

The Hawks took the W in their first two head-to-head games before the Magic came through with a 135-126 win in a high-scoring game two weeks ago. Legal betting sites aren’t quite sure how the fourth game will pan out since both teams are playing fine coming off the All-Star break.

Moneyline: Bet on the Magic to win SU. Yes, a Trae Young-led Hawks is always dangerous but I like how Orlando is playing as of late. While their defense is sagging as of late, their offense is picking up at the right time.

ATS: Pick the Magic to cover the spread. After a gritty two-point win against the Nets, the Magic are in for another tough contest with the Hawks. However, a 2.5 spread or something narrower to it should provide Orlando a window of opportunity to get an ATS win.

TOTALs: Bet on the OVER at 225.5 points. With the way the Magic is scoring the ball and the Hawks ever as dynamic with Young orchestrating on the offensive end, I am expecting another high-scoring affair at State Farm Arena.

Score Prediction: 117 – 112 Magic
