Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic
NBA Point Spread Pick: Atlanta +6.5 (December 6th 2017)

Orlando has no business as chalk these days.  Since their 6-2 start, the Magic are who we thought they were, just 4-13 SU in their last 17 ballgames.  Here at the Amway Center in Orlando, we’ve seen the Magic lose SU as favorites to the likes of the Bulls, Pacers and Jazz (without Gobert) in recent weeks.

The Magic are coming off their best defensive game in weeks against Charlotte; a rarity for a team ranked in the bottom quartile of the NBA in defensive efficiency.  Orlando still lost that game by double digits, thanks to an offense that couldn’t hit a shot while committing 20 turnovers, all while losing the rebounding battle yet again!  This team has been a 33% ATS proposition when laying -3 or higher this year, not a squad to lay points with.

Atlanta is just 2-9 SU at home this year, but they’ve been covering pointspreads with consistency in hostile environments, on a 67% run as road underdogs.  That includes a SU win at Brooklyn in their last try in this role.  Coming off a particularly ugly second half wipeout on Monday, look for a focused effort from Mike Budenholzer’s squad here.  Take the Hawks.
