The Orlando Magic will welcome the Atlanta Hawks into town tonight as the two compete for the second place spot in the Southeast Division behind the Miami Heat. Find up to the minute information on the odds to this game at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Orlando Magic and the Atlanta Hawks are currently in a tie for second place and both sit 6.5 games in back of the front-running Heat. The Magic could have had second place all to themselves, but they were upset in their last game vs. the Washington Wizards in Washington on Tuesday by a score of 93-85. Orlando not only needs to win tonight, but will need to win against lesser opponents the rest of the way if they want to secure second place.
The Hawks on the other hand have vaulted into second for a while now, but are having a tough time trying to shake the pesky Magic. The Hawks lost like the Magic did in their last game, but the Hawks lost to a Celtics team that is on a roll right now and they lost a good game by a score of 88-86 in overtime. Both the Hawks and the Magic for that matter play good defense so expect a low scoring game tonight.
The magic come into tonight just 2-6 in their last 8 games ATS and the total have gone over in 6 of their last 9 games. Despite the loss the other night the Hawks are still 4-2 overall in their last six and a very impressive 4-1-1 ATS in their last six road games.
