The Atlanta Hawks and Orlando Magic meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Amway Center.

The Atlanta Hawks look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 113.1 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 113.1 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Trae Young is averaging 26.5 points and 4.2 rebounds while John Collins is averaging 18.1 points and 7.6 rebounds. De’Andre Hunter is the third double-digit scorer and Clint Capela is grabbing 14.1 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 81.9 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.8 rebounds per game.

The Orlando Magic need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Orlando Magic are averaging 105.4 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 112.1 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 24.5 points and 11.7 rebounds while Evan Fournier is averaging 18.5 points and 3.8 assists. Terrence Ross is the third double-digit scorer and Aaron Gordon is grabbing 7.2 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 36.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.4 rebounds per game.


The Hawks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Magic are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 10-2 in Hawks last 12 overall. The over is 15-6 in Magic last 21 Wednesday games. The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Orlando and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The Atlanta Hawks are on the end of a back to back and aren't a team I'm thrilled about backing, but laying chalk with the Magic is simply not an option right now. The Orlando Magic ave lost four straight, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 12.2 points while allowing 48.4 percent shooting from the field. The Magic lose at home by an average of 4.8 points. It's the Hawks and the points or pass for me.
