With Atlanta coming into this game as 10 point favorites, I recommend taking them to cover this number. I would feel comfortable taking the Hawks ATS until -12.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Atlanta Hawks -10
Look for this game to be played at a slow pace. The Atlanta Hawks come into this game as one of the slowest-paced teams in the NBA. With their style, they also have a large impact on how the other team plays. When playing teams similar to the Magic, these games average 3 possessions below expectation. Atlanta wins these games 69% of the time.
A key matchup to watch will be how the Magic will respond to playing an Atlanta offense among the most efficient in the NBA. When the Hawks play bad defensive teams they score 6 points per possesion above average.
Although the Magic will struggle to stop Atlanta, they should be able to also put up points vs a Hawks defense struggling to slow down their opponents.
